STAFF REPORT IBD: The development of nations depends upon their progress in the field of science and technology, thus without good progress in this sector, no nation can compete in the economic world and tackle the ever increasing challenges of industrial development, agriculture, health and environment.
“The entire world benefitted from the knowledge generated by Muslim scientists, but alas, now despite being very rich in natural and human resources, the Islamic World on the whole, is far behind in SandT as compared to developed world,” said Patron of IYSA, Prof. Dr. Manzoor Hussain Soomro in his message to the Academy.
It is heartening to note that young academics/scientists have got together to establish the “Islamic World Young Scientists Academy”- IYSA, a non-governmental organization. It aims to provide a dynamic platform to youth of Islamic world for sharing their thoughts and ideas for improving the SandT status of the member countries.
He congratulated IYSA for joining hands together for an important cause and urged them to build on each others strengths and bring about a change in thought process among the youth of Islamic world. I hope that entire Islamic world would have representation in this platform and would fully benefit from it.
