pioneering countries and started its activities in line with development
of the technology. In this regard and as first step, a Study Committee
for Nanotechnology in Iran began its activities in 2001 and finally
Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) was established in the

The INIC is tasked with determining the general policies for the
development of nanotechnology in the country and pursuing the case with
implementation of the policies.
Iran’s success in achieving a proper place among 15 countries which are
advanced in nanotechnology and making attempt to promote the position in
a bid to develop Iran’s economy are the main missions of the INIC.
Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council is seeking to pave the ground for
activity of the private sector and production of wealth within the
society through adopting outlook, providing facilities, creating market
