challenges of the country regarding technology development through world-class inter-disciplinary
research. It also sets out to create a well-organized community of professionals and researchers

Nowadays, networks and international interactions serve as sources of knowledge production and dissemination. Hence, this department owes its existence to the undeniable status and significance of science and technology and international interactions. With a well-established position in the national innovation system and a productive network with other bodies of the government, the institute continues to support and develop science and technology diplomacy at all stages from diagnosis to decision making and implementation. This can be achieved through developing a clear understanding of international actual and potential threats and opportunities regarding science and technology, making international partnerships, learning from the experiences of other countries, and assisting with strategic decision making by giving policy advices and contributing in policy implementation through close collaboration with the executives.
This department has been established with the goal to highlight the local and Islamic

technology, and innovation. The Society and Progress Department paves the way for
development, promotion, and implementation of appropriate models for local and Islamic
Progress through adhering to a fundamental and applied approach in research. It also attempts to
