Today, science is one of the main pivots of progress and development of any country and it undoubtedly one of the ways to achieve knowledge is research. What is more necessary in this historical stage in which our country is located, is the need to pay attention to research as a driving force of knowledge-based economy. The economy outlined in the country's development plans and, in the vision, document is an economy based on science and knowledge. Therefore, to achieve this, it is necessary to strengthen the position of research. This promotion is not possible except in the shadow of planning, and using all the capacities.

Iran Polymer and Petrochemical Research Institute has been able to take great steps to fulfill its research mission since its establishment. But there is a difficult way to achieve the ideals of Horizon 1404(2025). If we can solve the problems of the industry and the country in the related fields of polymer and petrochemicals, by our in-depth scientific findings and studies, surely the output of scientific findings is breaking the locks and opening the knots of turning science into technology.

I hope that during our responsibility, by accelerating this, our research institute will be in a higher position than in the past, and by relying on the scientific ability of researchers and the efforts of each colleague in various fields, we will be able to achieve the great goals of our country.
