The distinctive program of the CISSC is designed to attract overseas outstanding scientists and experts in various fields of S&T to speak at an academic event in Iran. The purpose of the so-called Simorgh program, which started in 2010, is to provide opportunities for the faculty members and students at Iranian universities to enhance their research and training by establishing ties with foreign scholars. What distinguishes this program from the other sponsored programs of the CISSC is the requirement of organizing academic events for the invited guest speakers in one or more universities outside Tehran, preferably in the less developed cities across the country. Travel expenses related to the costs for domestic and foreign flights, local accommodation, and meals are covered by the CISSC. So far, various universities across the country have hosted foreign speakers who have been invited to Iran through this short-term visit program. pietro
