“The principles and regulations of the previous system have been absolutely cancelled, they are neither permissible, nor appropriate,” said Neda Mohammad Nadim. The acting minister added that in the future there will be an easier process for the promotion of scientific staff. “There were obstacles against scientific staff promotion. We cancelled the rules. Allah willing, there is no problem against scientific staff promotion,” he said.
