Transforming megacities into more sustainable and livable places with the help of smart technologies and the internet of things has gained momentum in Iran, as the government has invested heavily in smart city projects.
The Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology is the government's executive arm working to strengthen and expand the country’s technology ecosystem.
According to Sorena Sattari, the head of the office, there will be no smart cities unless we focus on urban innovation, transparency and public engagement, Islamic Azad University News Agency reported.
"The smart city ecosystem should be developed based on local resources and Iran’s talented young generation. The government has supported and will continue to support people with innovative ideas," he said.
