University theses on mines, mining industries to go specialized


Under an agreement signed between Mobarakeh Steel Company (MSC) and the University of Tehran, the giant steelmaker will offer special grants for research-related activities to the faculty members of the University of Tehran. When a research is complete, the research team will be supported by MSC to commercialize its plan if the team is able to achieve the stated objectives.  
In the signing ceremony, Managing Director of the Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organization (IMIDRO) Khodadad Gharibpour said university theses on mines and mining industry will become specialized and targeted with the help of Mobarakeh Steel Company and other giant companies.
He further said in light of the fact that science and research are being developed when it comes to mines and the mining industry, it is imperative to have theses in different areas such as steel, copper and aluminum specialized. “This will result in more concentration on specialized research topics and in the fruitfulness of such research.”
He said two research agreements have been inked with giant mining companies and added the National Iranian Copper Industries Company and an aluminum complex in Jajarm [in North Khorasan Province] are about to ink research agreements with the University of Tehran. “These agreements, when signed, will lay the groundwork for formulating fundamental, applied, problem-based and conclusive research plans.”  
The IMIDRO chief went on to say that under the agreement signed between MSC and the University of Tehran, the giant steelmaker will dedicate special research grants to the university’s faculty members.
After the completion of research, the research team will be supported by Mobarakeh Steel Company to commercialize its plan if the research team – including the researcher, supervisor or active students – is able to achieve the stated objectives, he said.  
This year a festival on innovative ideas on mines and mining industries, known as INNOMINE, will lend support to the top ten ideas on mines and mining industries, he added.
Gharibpour then honored the memory of Shamseddin Vahabi, the president of UNIDRO (a joint institute between University of Tehran and IMIDRO), and said his praiseworthy performance in UNIDRO brought about growth, progress and development.
In the ceremony, MSC chief Hamidreza Azimian and President of the University of Tehran Mahmoud Nili Ahmadabadi signed the research deal. Also present in the ceremony were Gholamreza Mollataheri, who is in charge of education, research and technology in IMIDRO, and Majid Vafaei-Fard, the head of Iran Minerals Processing Research Center (IMPRC).
