The Development of Science and Technology in Iran : Policies and Learning Frameworks - ojysuharoweq.tk
This chapter examines the scientific achievements of scholars and researchers in Iran in terms of the number and growth of publication of research papers in the international English-language journals. The chapter covers the debates among Iranian experts on the reason for such a high position and explores the mismatch between advances in scientific output and the inadequate technological development in the country.
The chapter supports the view that while the education and science policies of Iran have been very successful, the rise in scientific achievements, however, has not led to technological learning in the industries. However, the national education system has been continually supplying well-trained human resources to industries in Iran and, through the brain drain, to the rest of the world.
