Objectives of the association

Composite program is made from new and advanced scientific branches in the world and is growing and progressing rapidly. Due to the increasing growth of this science and its great use in industry and higher economic profitability, an association is formed in Iran to be a center for scientific works in this field.
A large number of professors and studies have been conducted in this field and related industries need to take advantage of these researches. It should be mentioned that there is a trade association called the Composite Industry Association of Iran, which is registered in the Ministry of Interior, and its members are managing directors of companies related to the composite industry and craftsmen in this field. But it was necessary to establish a scientific association to recognize the priorities of this field and make the research prioritized, targeted and aligned. The members of this university association “Scientific Association of Composites of Iran” will be university professors, researchers, and students in addition to the activists of the composite industry. The formation of this association will help research growth and alignment of research in this field, publishing a scientific research journal, and creating continuous communication between industry and university. Recognizing the priorities of this field and the goal of research and alignments in this field and establishing continuous communication and research between the university and industry is one of the main goals of the Iranian Composite Scientific Association.
Many people from universities, centers of the country, and institutions and research institutions in various fields of mechanical engineering, polymer engineering, chemical engineering, material engineering, and civil engineering are active in the composite industry. In addition, composite is used in many industries, including sports, aerospace, oil and petrochemical, medical, automotive, road, and construction industries. Many active people in this field are also among the contacts of this forum.
In December 2007, during the first international seminar on composites, which was organized by Dr. Mahmoud Mehr Shokrieh and Dr. Ahmed Varwani Farahani in Kish, the need to form a scientific forum for composites was discussed. The founding board has been formed as described in the table below, and the necessary matters regarding the preparation of the statutes and the necessary follow-ups have been done by the Commission of Scientific Associations of the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology. In the course of holding the second international composite seminar in December 2009 in Kish, the general assembly of the general assembly with the presence of the representative of the Ministry of Science formed and elected the first term of the board of directors and five people as prominent members, two people.
Alternates and an inspector were selected as described in Table 2. The necessary executive affairs were done with the Ministry of Science and the Companies Registration Organization and it was registered under the registration number 29195 dated 2/23/91 and the national ID number 10320766111 and the serious activities of the association officially started at the beginning of 2013. Preparation of logo, letterhead, account opening, website launch, etc., and with the activation of the receiving member, it is expected that this association will gain its position in the country.
