Message from the Chairman

At all scales, the role of science and technology in resolving economic, social and environmental problems is crucial. Attainment of scientific knowledge and appropriate technologies is a key to achieve this goal. Moreover, we should use novel and integrated approaches that fully enrich existing and new scientific knowledge. In this connection, universities, research and development institutes and industry can play a leading role tackling all major problems identified so far. Thus, education and scientific research must move in the direction of technology development to integrate new technologies for production and marketing and accelerate the production of all common commodities.
