Also, Prof. Alireza Salimi, Head of the University Innovation Department and Head of the Basic and Strategic Sciences Laboratory, explained the technical features of this laboratory, which for the first time was designed to be completely flexible and conceptual. This laboratory is conceptually designed to purposefully support projects in the fields of Advanced Material, Biological Science, Computing Science, and Cognitive Science.


The interesting point in this laboratory is the possibility of implementing 5 laboratory maps in the common space so that according to the approved projects and the specialized field, it can be rearranged and can be converted in less than a few hours with the intended infrastructure. Currently, 3 projects in the fields of new catalysts, high-performance surface coatings, and synthesis of favipiravir replacement drugs are being executed in this laboratory and its research teams are engaged in research activities.
