The specialized Meeting on “Explaining the Legal Status of Decision-Making Institutions in Iran's Science, Research and Technology System” was held on Saturday, August 24, 2019 with the speeches of Dr. Safar Bigzadeh, faculty member of Iranian Research Institute for Information Science and Technology (IranDoc). At the beginning of the meeting, which was organized by the Science and Technology Ethics Group of NRISP, Dr. Bigzadeh in an introduction defined the law and said; certainty and predictability are key features of the law.

Then, noting that the duties of the Supreme Council for Science, Research and Technology and the Supreme Council for Cultural Revolution and the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology, as three important decision-making bodies, overlap in parts, Dr. Beigzadeh said; this overlap sometimes causes disturbance. Bigzade went on to provide more details.

The meeting was followed by discussions.
