UNICEF Iran and the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology create a brand new partnership
Tehran, 3 July 2019 - UNICEF Iran and the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology have created a brand new partnership to foster and support innovations for children in Iran.
Dr Ali Morteza Birang, Deputy of International Affairs and Head of the Centre for International Science and Technology Cooperation of the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology, and Dr Will Parks, UNICEF Iran Representative, signed a joint workplan on 3rd July 2019. This cooperation will seek out new solutions for existing and emerging problems that children face. Highly creative Think Tanks, a national network of Innovations for Children, awards to promote innovative solutions for children, and mobilizing resources to support youth-led start-up businesses are among the results that will be achieved.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
