However, each university has its own provincial and local mission, which must be defined by entering the daily lives of people and recognize the role of solving problems based on a business model.

Support of Effective and Need-Oriented Studies

Sattari pointed out the support of promising projects and models of project businesses by the Vice-Presidency for science and technology affairs, asserting: we disagree with mere use of research to produce articles. Therefore, any project that can lead to solving of problems will be supported.

Sattari mentioned the local capacities of Sistan and Baluchestan, that can be turned into wealth creation and a local advantage if jointed with technology, stating: for instance, Sistani cow is one of the domestic livestock of this region, which has a historical background. In this regard, we are prepared to help the flourishing of this valuable local capacity in technological fields, such as biotechnology and stem cells and genetic modification by supplying the necessary infrastructures of the work.
