The Mustafa Science and Technology Foundation (MSTF) has established the scientific competition to bounce ideas around in the academic community. It addresses the problems of the Islamic world in different areas for scholars and innovators during 45 years, mstfdn.org reported.
The award ceremony will be held on the sidelines of the 11th International Innovation and Technology Exhibition, from May 10 to 13, in Tehran.
As one of the important events held by MSTF, it aims to celebrate the achievements of young academics in the Islamic world. The academics try to solve the ongoing problems of their countries in different fields, Sohrabpour said.
He elaborated on reviewing the submissions, saying that each participant sends a three-to-five-minute film about the idea, and the jury reviews it.
Referring to the finalists who are from Iran, Bangladesh, and Malaysia, he said that the winners would be announced during a ceremony in six different fields on May 13.
He noted that in this round of the competition, some national and international institutions provide challenging programs for researchers. Known as KANS Pavilions, they invite scientists from all over the Islamic world to find a solution to the challenges. Sohrabpour said that 13 pavilions provide 63 challenges. The institutes are encouraged to invest in the projects as well as the ideas of young researchers and scientists.
