Three Chinese groups from China’s different cities and scientific-technological institutes attended the 10th nanotechnology exhibition 2017. A group of four scientists from the Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics (SINANO), a three-member group from the Harbin center for science and technology cooperation, and two ones from WTOIP in Guangzhou form this scientific board.
After Dr. Sorena Satari, Iran Vice President of Science and Technology visited Suzhou in November last year, a cooperation agreement was signed between Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) and the Suzhou Nanotechnology Institute. By this way, collaborative research projects are annually selected and supported through a Common Fund Support for research projects between the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Iranian relevant organization. Hence, researchers from the SINANO Center and Iranian nanotechnology scientists held a joint workshop during the nanotechnology exhibition and discussed the joint projects.
It is noteworthy that Harbin City is located in northern China, where scientific and technological institutions have made significant progress in the field of advanced technologies and nanotechnology in recent years. Following a joint meeting held between INIC and members of the Harbin Scientific and Technological Cooperation Center in July, it was decided that a board would attend the 10th Nanotechnology Exhibition. This three-member group also visited other science and technology centers including Cinnagen and the Medical and Hospital Center during their stay. In the next months, another joint meeting will be held in Harbin City.
WTOIP is a company based in Guangzhou, China, which provides services in over 20 Chinese cities in the field of intellectual property. Representatives of the company visited the Nanotechnology Exhibition in order to explore the possibility of developing joint partnerships in intellectual property, patents, and commercialization, and met with a number of top technicians.
It should be noted that the presence of the Chinese board at the 10th nanotechnology exhibition has been scheduled based on the plans and activities undertaken over the past two years and the establishment of China-Iran Nanotechnology Center. To date, this center has held five joint meetings between Iranian and Chinese companies. It has concluded more than twenty scientific and technological agreements and four export contracts in various fields of science and research.
