The signing of a memorandum on comprehensive cooperation between Iran and China in the 25-year horizon has facilitated the expansion of bilateral cooperation in various fields. Scientific cooperation is one of the most important aspects discussed in this document. Allocating clauses to the scientific cooperation between the two countries, in addition to creating the opportunity for scientific development, can be the basis for cooperation in other fields. Considering the existing trends in the cooperation between the two countries, the focus of this article is on providing policy solutions and strategies to improve the level of scientific cooperation, considering the will of the governance systems of the two countries to improve relations in the 25-year horizon. In order to achieve this goal, a theoretical framework containing propositions derived from the network system and agent-structure has been drawn for three micro, medium and macro levels. The research method is structural-interpretive analysis. The result is that the scientific cooperation between Iran and China is affected by a set of macro, medium and micro level factors that directly and indirectly affect its progress. The main achievement of the article is determining the share of influential factors and the type of relationships between this network of factors and prioritizing them with the aim of promoting scientific cooperation between the two countries of Iran and China.
