TEHRAN (FNA)- Silk Road Scientific Fund Joint Project announced fifth invitation for the Iranian and Chinese researchers on Tuesday to participate in the meeting.

The invitation was announced by the Bureau of Iran’s Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology.

The Fund sponsors joint research activities between Iranian and Chinese scholars in collaboration with Iran National Science Foundation (INSF) and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

The participants have nearly two months to send their projects on cognitive science, technology and nanotechnology to the Silk Road Scientific Fund.

The results are slated for October 15, 2020.

For more than a decade, INSF has taken coordinated measures to support researchers and scientists, and today it works closely with more than 35,000 academics from numerous universities and research institutes across the country. INSF mainly focuses on, inter alia, supporting research projects, post-doctoral programs, international patent application, research chairs, research grants, awards, and development of innovation centers, according to insf.org.

Back in November, 2019 it was announced that Tehran and Beijing are resolute to broaden mutual cooperation in areas of knowledge-based economy as an Iranian delegation of knowledge-based companies is on a tour of China.

Iranian and Chinese knowledge-based companies have reached an agreement to will their cooperation in all fields of mutual interest.

Representatives of Iranian delegation of knowledge-based companies met and held talks with Chinese officials in Shanghai on ways to increase export of knowledge-based, technological and innovative products.

The directors of knowledge-based companies from various important scientific fields accompanied the Iranian delegation in this visit to China.

Information technology, stem cells, industrial machinery and equipment, and the health sector were the main topics of discussion during the meeting.

In August 2019, a delegation from Iran-China Friendship Association visited the East Asian country, to take part at a seminar at Shenyang, the capital city of China's Liaoning province. During the seminar, the Iranian side and the local officials of the province discussed avenues to expand scientific, cultural and economic cooperation.

Beijing has largely defied Washington sanctions on Iran by continuing to import oil from the country even after the administration of President Donald Trump ended exemptions given to China for buying Iran’s crude in May, data provided by China’s customs authorities attested in last month.
