Eastern Countries’ Scientific Concerns are the Same As Ours

Saturday, November 10, 2018 - 14:51

Former cultural advisor of Eastern countries has stated that some parts of the science, technology, humanities and history have been inspired by Eastern universities.

In his interview with Azad News Agency, Aliakbar Ziaee said that factors such as close tradition, history and even common religion with some Eastern countries, could create more interaction with them.

Ziaee added that unfortunately, we are following Western technologies but eastern countries have been developing fast and their universities are among the world's top 10 universities in many global rankings for instance, universities of Singapore, Malaysia and India.

Eastern countries’ research priorities are based on their countries' needs, for example dehydration, agriculture and desert greening are the central areas of studying which are not the West’s concerns, he noted.

He noted that Iran Ministry of Science, Research and Technology can play an effective role in developing international affairs through signing cooperation Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) as well as applying professors and exchanging students with Eastern countries.
