Work is underway to construct a science and technology park in the newly-established commercial and entertainment township of iLand, southwest of Tehran.
Iranian Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari visited the site of the park to see for himself the process of its construction.
“The potential created to build a sci-tech park has given fresh impetus to the trend of the formation of a smart city,” he said.
He added the Science and Technology Department of the President’s Office supports the development of knowledge-based infrastructure in the country.
“The purpose of this visit was to offer support to the development of innovation and technology ecosystem for companies and individuals who take steps towards solving problems of society through innovative services and solutions,” he noted.
He said the department is seriously making efforts to establish knowledge-based companies, technological units and creative industries at the sci-tech park.
