Dr. Hamid Mirzadeh stated that today, IAU can be viewed as a global model for encouraging public participation in national academic developments.
According to IAU public relations, in his visit with IAU student associations, the president of Islamic Azad University, Dr. Mirzadeh noted that based on published statistics, IAU contributes almost 25 percent of the entire global science production and owes this record to its students. “ IAU would have not been able to contribute at this scale to the country’s academic, political, cultural, and economic development if it weren't for its students.”
Dr. Mirzadeh also added that today, IAU’s success is the main reason that most of the world’s reputable universities have announced their interest and readiness to cooperate in research and academic endeavours.
He also emphasized the neccessity of consultation, decentralization, and low response times for successful management in all IAU branches.
