Signing cooperation agreement between Ark Safety Industry and the Health Faculty of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences

Today, industry and academia are two key institutions for any society. The cooperation of the industry and academia has become a precondition for the development of societies. The existence of specialized scientific staff, research, and laboratory capabilities are considered a basic precondition for the development of industries in different countries. Fortunately, today, universities, as centers for the training of specialized personnel, have a very suitable platform for scientific, research, and laboratory activities. On the other hand, the industry is known as the main centers of work and activity, as practical laboratories and a place to turn knowledge into action. Therefore, it can be said that industry and university are complementary to each other, and every society needs these two categories and their effective relationship to achieve their development goals. Today, universities can cooperate with industry in various fields, including research-educational cooperation, technology transfer, and so on.
Unfortunately, in recent years, in our country, contrary to the macro policies of communication, the relationship between academia and industry has become a major challenge for both parties and many problems in this regard have been faced by business partners and academics.
