A senior Iranian government official said some 3,000 Iranian students who studied in foreign universities have returned to the country after graduation.

Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari said in a meeting on Monday that the Office of the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology, under his leadership, has worked to bring Iranian researchers studying abroad back to the country, IRNA reported.

Some 3,000 students, 450 of whom studied at top universities, have returned to Iran after graduation, Sattari said.

He said that the vice president’s office worked on a program to bring back non-resident Iranians studying abroad because deriving benefits from students who have graduated from foreign universities would take 10 years to bear fruit.

The official also touched on scientific cooperation with Russia and China, noting that Iran and China were running 60 to 70 joint projects.

He said that the office of the vice president has established innovation houses in various countries, including Kenya, Russia, Syria, and Turkey, to increase exports of knowledge-based products.

Some 70 startups, for instance, are currently active in Iran’s innovation house in Kenya, according to Sattari.
