Experts and knowledge workers are key to enhancing competitiveness and performance in organizations and companies. Capable human resources are sources of specialized services, enhancing innovation, creativity and efficiency. Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council has developed a program so as to benefit from the most capable human resources in the field of nanotechnology.
High on the agenda of the council are the following:
