S&T Diplomacy
The world is witnessing a paradigm shift in international relations. Due to rapid changes, "S&T Diplomacy” has emerged as a new strategy for developing, shaping, and reshaping international relations across the world.
As a person who was highly engaged in this concept, both theoretically and practically during the past 10 years (see here), I strongly believe that Scientific Diplomacy is working successfully worldwide and will play a key role in future relations among nations. 
“Science Diplomacy” has great potential for furthering the development of relations between different nations in very intelligent ways, and may help their states avoid possible disputes and conflicts.

My Experience on S&T Diplomacy

  1. Scientific Counsellor of Iran in East Asia - I was the Scientific Counsellor and Director of Iranian students in East Asia (from 2015 to 2018), where my major mission was to coordinate Iran's academic and scientific relations with East Asian countries. See more!
  2. International Advisor of ICT Park- I have been associated with Iran's ICT Park as the International Relations advisor (2019-present) where I was fully engaged with the Science and Technology ecosystem of many countries in Africa and Asia, including Russia.  See more

Scientific Diplomacy: Case of Iran and ASAIHL Members

This is a conference paper presented at the ASIHL board of members in Japan, in 2018. In this paper which was presented at SOKA University, I (and Prof. Dr. Aini )provided our Country's report on the current and future roadmap of scientific relationship between Iran and East Asian Countries including Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, South Korea etc. The most interesting result of this paper was the huge number of scientists who were involved in these scientific ties (all together 17982 scholars from both sides).

Science and Technology ِDiplomacy and the Power of Students

In this paper, a scientometric approach is applied to study the trend and progress of “Scientific Diplomacy” in Iran’s relationship with Malaysia during the last few years. The results of the study show that, with 5569 joint publications and as part of the 10,239 authors from both countries, Iranian students in Malaysia have contributed to 9.8% of all Malaysian international joint publications between 2012 and 2017. This was equal to 2.06% and 3.6% of all scientific publications in Iran and Malaysia, respectively.

Internationalization of H.E of Iran: Strategies and Techniques

This is a book in Persian which was written for the Iranian scientific community at three levels: for High Policy makers at government ministries, for University Levels (Top Managers), and for Scholars (researchers, lecturers and postgraduate students). Having "internationalization at home" as the main theme in my mind, I tried to transfer East Asian countries’' experiences and discourses on the Internationalization of Higher Education to Iran.
This book is published by ISCS under Iran's Ministry of Science, Research and Technology.
