Countries' ability is evaluated on the basis of the rate of the modern science and technology output. In order to provide welfare and security for the country and the people, we should also produce modern Iranian science and perform our national production based on native technology. To have a long-term development plan with clear and specified objectives and small subprograms for evaluating and controlling them is a must. The belief of the authorities in the plan and its performance along with the country's stability are the necessary conditions to materialize the plan.

In this article, a few methods experienced in the other under- developed countries are discussed.
