DR. Moein’s speech in London, 3

At the endof the speech in Kanoon Towhid in London, somebody asked Dr. Moein if the growth in the number scientific publication has had any effect on our industry or people’s life. Dr. said that it has but the effect is not outstanding. Because there is still not enough relation between university and industry. And also for example in agricultureal sector less than about (I think) 2% of human force have a university degree. In such a situation it is not reasonable to expect that the results of the agricultural researches have direct effect on our agriculture. Dr. Moein also talked about the lack of funding for research. He siad he visited the University of Cambridge and was told that most parts of the city of Cambridge are owned by the University which is a great source of income for that university.
