Iran. Has made considerable advances. In science and technology through, education, and training despite, international sanctions in almost all aspects, of research during, the past 30 years, iran's. University. Population swelled, from 100,000. In 1979. To 2 million in 2006. In. Recent, years the growth in iran scientific. Output is reported, to be the fastest, in the world Iran. Has made great strides in, different sectors including, aerospace nuclear. Science, medical, development, as well as stem cell and cloning research throughout, history Persia was always a cradle, of science contributing. To medicine mathematics astronomy, and, philosophy, trying. To revive the golden time of Persian science Iran scientists, now are cautiously, reaching, out to the world many. Individual, Iranian, scientists. Along with the Iranian, Academy, of Medical Sciences, and Academy, of Sciences, of Iran are involved, in this revival. Topic. Science, in ancient Iran Persia. Science. In Persia evolved, in two main phases separated. By the arrival and widespread, adoption of Islam in the region, references. To scientific, subjects, such as natural, science and mathematics, occur in books written in the parlor VIII languages. Topic. Ancient. Technology, in Persia. The, cannot a water management system, used for irrigation originated. In pre acumen II Persia the. Oldest and largest known, can at is in the Iranian city of Ghana bad which after, two thousand, seven hundred years still provides drinking, and agricultural, water to nearly forty thousand, people Persian, philosophers, and inventors, may have created, the first batteries, sometimes, known as the Baghdad battery in, the Parthian or sasnett, eras some. Have suggested that, the batteries may have been used medicinally other. Scientists. Believe the batteries were used for electroplating. Transferring. A thin layer of metal to another metal surface, a technique. Still used today in the focus of a common classroom experiment, wind wheels were developed by the Babylonians, CA. 1700. BC to pump water for irrigation in the, seventh century persian, engineers, in greater iran developed, a more advanced, wind power machine, the windmill building, upon the basic model developed by the Babylonians. Topic. Mathematics. The, ninth century mathematician. Mohammed IBN musa alkar, as me created, the logarithm table, developed algebra, and expanded, upon persian and indian arithmetic, systems, his.

Topic. Medicine. The, practice, and study of Medicine in Iran has a long and prolific history. Situated. At the crossroads, of the east and west Persia was often involved in developments, in ancient Greek and Indian medicine, pre and post Islamic, Iran have been involved in medicine as well, for. Example the first teaching hospital, where medical students, methodically, practiced, on patients, under the supervision of physicians, was the Academy of gunsa / in the Persian Empire some. Experts go so far as to claim that to, a very large extent the, credit for the whole hospital. System, must be given to Persia, the. Idea of xenotransplantation, dates.

Astronomy. In, 1080. Biruni, wrote an astronomical, encyclopedia. That discussed the possibility, that the earth might rotate around the Sun this. Was before Tycho, Brahe he drew the first maps of the sky using stylized, animals, to depict the constellations. In the, 10th century the Persian astronomer ABD. Al-rahman, al sufi cast his eyes upwards, to the awning of stars overhead and was the first to record a galaxy, outside our own gazing. At the Andromeda galaxy he, called it her little, cloud an apt, description of, the slightly wispy appearance, of our galactic neighbor.

Only changes, its form condition. Composition. Color and other properties, and turns, into a different complex. Or elementary, matter. 500, years later Mikhail, Lomonosov, 1711. 2 1765. And on Tuan laurent lavoisier. 1743. 2 1794. Created, the law of conservation of mass setting, down this same idea, however. It should be noted that 2 zi argued for evolution, within a firmly Islamic, context, he. Did not like Darwin, draw materialist, conclusions, from his theories. Moreover. Unlike Darwin, he was arguing hypothetically. He did not attempt to provide empirical data for his theories, nonetheless. His, arguments, which in some ways prefigure, natural selection, are still considered, remarkably, advanced, for their time. Gabriel. Urban Haiyan the famous Iranian chemist, who died in 804. At Towson, Khorasan, was the father of the number of discoveries recorded. In an encyclopedia and. Of many treatises, covering, 2,000, topics and these became the Bible of European chemists, of the 18th century particularly, of Lavoisier's, these. Works had a variety of uses including, tinctures, and their applications. In tanning and textiles, distillations of plants and flowers the, origin of perfumes, therapeutic. Pharmacy, and gunpowder a powerful, military instrument, possessed, by Islam long before the West, Jabby. Ribbon Haiyan is widely regarded as the founder of chemistry, inventing, many of the basic processes, and equipment still, used by chemists, today such as distillation. Topic. Physics. Biruni. Was the first scientist, to formally, propose that the speed of light is finite before, Galileo tried, to experimentally prove, this. Kemal. Al Din al-farisi. 1267. - 1318 born, in Tabriz Iran is known for giving the first mathematically. Satisfactory. Explanation, of the rainbow and an explication of the nature of colors that reformed the theory of even al-haytham. Al-farisi. Also, proposed.
A Model where the ray of light from the Sun was refracted, twice by water droplet, one or more reflections. Occurring, between the two refractions. He. Verified, this through extensive, experimentation. Using, a transparent, sphere filled with water and a camera obscura. Topic. Science policy the Iranian Research Organisation. For Science and Technology, in the national research institute for science policy come under the ministry of science research, and technology, they. Are in charge of establishing, national research, policies, the, government first set its sights on moving from a resource-based economy to. One based on knowledge in its 20 year development plan vision, 2025. Adopted. In 2005. This. Transition, became a priority after, international, sanctions were, progressively, hardened, from 2006. Onwards in the oil embargo tightened. Its grip in. February, 2014, the supreme, leader Ayatollah, Ali Khamenei, introduced, what he called the economy, of resistance, an economic, plan advocating. Innovation, and a lesser dependence, on imports that reasserted, key provisions, of vision 2025. Vision, 2025. Challenged. Policymakers, to look beyond extractive, industries, to the country's, human capital, for wealth creation, this. Led to the adoption of incentive, measures to raise the number of university, students, and academics, on the one hand and to stimulate, problem-solving. An industrial, research on the other Iran's, success, of five-year plans aimed to realize collectively, the goals of vision 2025. For. Instance in order to ensure that 50 percent of academic, research was oriented towards, socio-economic. Needs and problem-solving, the fifth five-year, economic development. Plan 2010, to 2015. Tied promotion, to the orientation, of research projects, it. Also made provision, for research, and technology centers to be set up on campus and for universities. To velop linkages, with industry, v, five-year, economic development. Plan had two main thrusts, relative to science policy the. First was the Islamization. Of universities, a notion that is open to broad interpretation. According. To article, 15 of the fifth five-year, economic development, plan university, programs, in the humanities, were to teach the virtues, of critical, thinking theorization. And multidisciplinary. Studies a number. Of research centers were also to be developed, in the humanities. The. Plans second thrust was to make iran the second biggest player in science, and technology by, 2015. Behind turkey to. This end the government pledged to raise domestic research, spending to 3 percent of GDP by. 2015. Yet. Our indies share in the GNP is at 0.06. Percent in 2015. Where it should be at least 2.5. Percent, of GDP an industry, driven R&D. Is almost non-existent vision.
2025. Fixed, a number of targets including. That of raising domestic, expenditure, on research and development to 4 percent of GDP, by 2025. In. 2012. Spending, stood at 0.3. 3%, of GDP in. 2009. The government adopted, a national master plan for science, and education, to 2025. Which reiterates, the goals of vision 2025. It. Lays particular stress, on developing, university, research and fostering, university, industry ties to promote the commercialization. Of research results. Topic. Human, resources. In, line with the goals of vision 2025. Policymakers. Have made a concerted effort to increase the number of students, and academic, researchers, to. This end the government raised its commitment, to higher education to, 1 percent of GDP in. 2006. After. Peaking, at this level higher education, spending stood, at 0.8, 6%, of GDP in, 2015. Higher. Education, spending has resisted, better than public expenditure, on education overall. The. Latter peaked at 4.7 percent of GDP, in 2007. Before, slipping to 2.9, percent of GDP, in 2015. Vision. 2025. Fixed. A target of raising public expenditure, on education to, 7%, of GDP by. 2025. Topic. Student. Enrollment, trends. The, result of greater spending on higher education, has been a steep rise in tertiary enrollment. Between. 2007. And 2013, student. Roles swelled from 2.8. Million to 4.4. Million in the country's public and private universities. Some. 45%. Of students were enrolled in private universities. In 2011. There. Were more women studying than men in 2007. A proportion, that has since dropped back slightly to 48% enrollment. Has progressed, in most fields, the. Most popular, in 2013. Was Social Sciences 1.9. Million students. Of which 1.1. Million women and engineering, 1.5. Million of which, 370. 3415. Women, women. Also made up two-thirds of medical students, one, in eight bachelor's students, go on to enroll in a master's ph.d, program this. Is comparable, to the ratio in the Republic, of Korea in Thailand one in seven and Japan one in ten the number of PhD, graduates, has progressed, at a similar pace as university, enrollment overall. Natural. Sciences, and engineering, have proved increasingly, popular, among both sexes, even if engineering, remains a male-dominated, field, in, 2012. Women, made up 1/3 of PhD, graduates, being drawn primarily, to health 40% of PhD, students, Natural, Sciences. 39%. Agriculture. 33%. And humanities, and arts, 31%. According. To the UNESCO, Institute for statistics 38. Percent of masters and PhD, students, were studying science, and engineering, fields in 2011. There. Has been an interesting evolution, in the gender balance among, PhD, students. Whereas. The share of female PhD. Graduates, in health remained, stable at 38, to 39 percent between. 2007. And 2012, it rose in all three other broad fields, most. Spectacular. Was the leap in female PhD, graduates, in agricultural, sciences, from 4%, to 33%. But, there was also a marked progression, in science from 28%, to, 39%. And engineering, from 8% to 16 percent of PhD, students, although. Data are not readily available on, the number of PhD, graduates, choosing to stay on his faculty, the relatively modest, level of domestic research spending would suggest that academic, research suffers, from inadequate funding the fifth five-year, economic development. Plan 2010, to 2015. Fixed the target of attracting, 25,000. Foreign students, to Iran by 2015. By. 2013. There were about 14,000. Foreign students, attending Iranian universities. Most of whom came from Afghanistan Iraq, Pakistan, Syria. And Turkey in. A speech delivered at the University, of Tehran in October, 2014, president, rouhani recommended. Greater interaction, with the outside world. He. Said that scientific. Evolution, will be achieved by criticism, and the expression, of different ideas. Scientific. Progress is achieved if we are related, to the world we. Have to have a relationship, with the world not only in foreign policy but also with regard to the economy science and technology I think, it is necessary, to invite foreign professors, to come to Iran and our professors, to go abroad and even to create an English university, to be able to attract foreign students, one in four Iranian, PhD, students, were studying abroad in 2012. 25.7%. The. Top destinations. Were Malaysia the USA, Canada, Australia UK. France, Sweden, and Italy in. 2012, one, in seven international students. In Malaysia was of Iranian, origin there. Is a lot of scope for the development, of twinning between universities. For teaching and research as, well as for student, exchanges. Topic. Trends, in researchers. According. To the UNESCO, Institute for, statistics the number of full-time equivalent researchers.
Rose From 711, to. 736. Per million inhabitants between. 2009. And 2010. This. Corresponds, to an increase of more than 2000, researchers from. 52,000. 256. 250. 4813. The. World average is, 1083. Per million inhabitants. One. In four 26%. Iranian, researchers, is a woman which is close to the world average, 28%. In. 2008. Half of researchers, were employed in academia. 51.5%. One, third in the government sector. 33.6%. And just under 1 in 7 in the business sector 15 point o % within. The business sector, 22%. Of researchers were women in 2013. The same proportion, as in Ireland Israel Italy, in Norway the. Number of firms declaring, research activities, more than doubled between 2006. And 2011 from, 30 thousand, nine hundred and thirty five to sixty four thousand. 642. The. Increasingly, tough sanctions regime, oriented, the Iranian economy towards. The domestic, market and by erecting barriers to foreign imports, encourage knowledge-based, enterprises. To localize, production. Topic research expenditure. Iran's national, science budget was about 900 million dollars in 2005. And it had not been subject, to any significant, increase for the previous 15 years in. 2001. Iran, devoted, 0.5. O %, of GDP to, research and development, expenditures. Peta. 0.67. Percent of GDP in 2008. Before receding, to 0.3. 3 percent of GDP in, 2012, according to the UNESCO Institute for, statistics the. World average in 2013. Was 1.7. Percent of GDP. Iran's. Government has devoted much of its budget to research on high technologies, such as nanotechnology. Biotechnology. Stem, cell research and information, technology, 2008. In. 2006. The Iranian, government, wiped out the financial debts of all universities, in a bid to relieve their budget constraints. According. To the UNESCO, science report 2010, most research in Iran is government, funded with the Iranian government providing. Almost 75%. Of, all research funding. Domestic. Expenditure, on research stood at 0.7%. Of GDP in, 2008. And 0.3. Percent of GDP, in 2012. Iranian. Businesses, contributed, about 11% of the total in 2008. The. Government's, limited budget is being directed, towards supporting, small innovative, businesses, business, incubators. And Science and Technology parks the type of enterprises. Which employ university. Graduates, the share of private businesses, in total national R&D funding, according, to the same report is very low being just 14% as compared, with turkeys 48%, the. Rest of approximately, 11% of funding comes from higher education sector and nonprofit, organizations a. Limited. Number of large enterprises such. As i dro ni o c ni pc do iran, aviation, industries, organization Iranian. Space Agency, Iran electronics, industries, or Iran Khodro, have their own in-house R&D, capabilities. Topic.

Community, remains productive, even while economic, sanctions, make it difficult for universities. To buy equipment or to send people to the United States to attend scientific. Meetings. Furthermore. Iran considers, scientific, backwardness as one of the root causes of political, and military bullying, by developed, countries over, developing, States after. The Iranian Revolution there, have been efforts by the religious, scholars to assimilate, Islam with modern science, and this is seen by some as the reason behind the recent successes, of Iran to augment its scientific, output, currently. Iran aims for a national, goal of self sustainment, in all scientific, arenas. Many. Individual, Iranian, scientists. Along with the Iranian Academy, of Medical Sciences, and Academy, of Sciences, of Iran are involved, in this revival the. Comprehensive.

The only g8 countries, in top 20 ranking, with fastest, performance, improvement, are Italy at 10th in Canada at 13th, globally, Iran.
China India, and Brazil are the only developing, countries, among 31, nations with, 97.5. Percent of the world's total scientific. Productivity, the. Remaining, 162. Developing, countries, contribute, less than 2.5. Percent of the world's scientific, output, despite. The massive improvement, from, 0.03. Percent of, the global scientific output, in 1972. 0.29%. In, 2003. Still, Iran's total, share in the world's total output remained, small, according. To Thomson Reuters Iran, has demonstrated a, remarkable growth, in science and technology over, the past 1 decade, increasing, its science and technology, output, fivefold, from 2000. To 2008. Most. Of this growth has been in engineering, and chemistry producing. 1.4. Percent of the world's total output in the period, 2004. To 2008. By. Year 2008. Iranian, science and technology, output accounted, for 1.0, 2%, of the world's total output that is approximately. 340. Thousand, percent growth in 37, years of 1972. 2008. 25 percent of scientific, articles published in 2008. By Iran were international co-author, ships the. Top five countries co-authoring. With Iranian, scientists. A US UK Canada Germany. And France a. 2010. Report by Canadian, research firm science, metrics, has put Iran in the top ranked globally, in terms of growth in scientific. Productivity, with a 14.4, growth index followed, by South Korea with a 9.8, growth index. Iran's. Growth rate in science, and technology, is 11 times more than the average growth of the world's output in 2009. And in terms of total output per year Iran has already surpassed the total scientific, output of countries, like Sweden, Switzerland Israel. Belgium, Denmark Finland. Austria, or that of Norway, Iran. With a science and technology, yearly growth rate of 25%, is, doubling its total output every three years and that this rate will reach the level of Canadian, annual output in 2017. The. Report further notes that Iran's scientific. Capability, buildup has been the fastest, in the past two decades and that this buildup is in part due to the Iraqi invasion of Iran the subsequent, bloody iran-iraq, war in Iran's high casualties, due to the international, sanctions in effect on Iran is compared, to the international, support Iraq enjoyed, the.
Then Technologically. Superior Iraq, and its use of chemical weapons, on Iranians, made Iran to embark on a very ambitious science, developing, program by mobilizing, scientists. In order to offset its international, isolation and, this is most evident in the country's nuclear, sciences. Advancement, which has in the past two decades grown, by, 8400, percent as compared, to the 34, percent for the rest of the world this. Report, further predicts, that though Iran's scientific. Advancement, is a response, to its international isolation may, remain a cause of concern for the world all the while it may lead to a higher quality, of life for the Iranian population, but simultaneously and, paradoxically, will also isolate, Iran even, more because of the world's concern, over Iran's technological. Advancements. Other. Findings, of the report point, out that the fastest, growing sectors, in Iran of physics Public, Health Sciences, engineering, chemistry and mathematics. Overall. The growth has mostly occurred after 1980, and specialy has been becoming faster since 1991. With a significant, acceleration, in 2002. In an explosive surge since 2005. It. Has been argued that scientific. And technological advancement. Besides the nuclear program, is the main reason for United, States worried about Iran which may become a superpower, in the future some. In Iranian scientific, community, see sanctions, is a Western, conspiracy to, stop Iran's rising, rank in modern science and allege that some Western countries want, to monopolize modern, technologies, as per. US government, report on science, and engineering, titled, science and engineering, indicators, 2010. Prepared, by National, Science Foundation. Iran has the world's highest growth, rate in science, and engineering article. Output with an annual growth rate of twenty five point seven percent the. Report is introduced, as a factual and policy, neutral, volume of record comprising, the major high quality quantitative, data on the US and international, science and engineering, enterprise, this. Report, also notes that the very rapid growth rate, of Iran inside a wider region, was led by its growth in scientific. Instruments, pharmaceuticals.
