The industry and university partnership is one of the main driving forces to achieve the goals of the Iran 1404 outlook document. It has a significant effect on the employment of the educated manpower and on the national production and subsequently on the GNI per capita. Since mean years of schooling and expected years of schooling and the GNI per capita are the substantial indices for human development, university and industry partnership is one of the requirements for improvement of human development indices.
In this paper, the concept of the human development is tried to be explained. Measuring the human development by utilizing the indices, and also an analytic comparison between Iran and the countries introduced in Iran 1404 outlook document, is performed. The countries under our study in this paper are: the Middle East countries, Middle Asia, Caucasus and neighbor countries.
The purpose of this paper is to investigate and evaluate the human development of Islamic Republic of Iran based on the human development report (HDR) in 2011. This report is publishing annually by the United Nations organization. The results show that we are not in a good position in the human development indices and our grade in the observed area is decreasing. Finally, some suggestions are presented to improve the human development.
