A student of Tabriz University majoring in mechanical engineering (design of solids), Kahouli managed to stand second at this year's World Inventions Competitions in the Swiss city of Geneva and win the special award for improvising a new method for cloud impregnation.
In response to the invitation of BIS, he left for London on Wednesday October 27 to take part in the conference aiming to select the world best inventor.
Speaking to reporters upon arrival in Tabriz on Monday, he said that the he was awarded the gold medal and named the world top inventor by the jury.
He added that during the conference, the international scientific medal was given to him.
Kahouli noted that he was warmly welcomed at the conference by various British scholars and scientific centers as well as the world news media.
"The success of young Iranian inventors in the event was quite normal from the outlook of the scientists attending the conference.
My innovation in coming up with a new method for impregnating clouds was of special appeal to them," he added.
During his stay, Kahouli also visited the London International Invention Exhibition (October 20-23).
Meanwhile, he visited Kensington, Cambridge and Liverpool universities and gave lectures on his inventions and initiatives as well as the motto of "Rank first in the world by following our ideas".
On the third day of the exhibition, this year's four selected inventors were lauded and awarded in a ceremony.
