Iran: The election of a new president of Iran has raised concerns about research funding and academic freedom. Iran currently spends 0.65% of its GDP on science, up from 0.2% just 15 years ago. The country's progress is evidenced by increases in funding for selected institutions and a rise in the number of publications and international collaborations. So far, the president's new science minister and the restructuring of the High Commission for Science, Research and Technology have generated little controversy.
