Iranian officials have been making efforts to develop the technology ecosystem by setting up tech parks and innovation factories, providing equipped working spaces to talented, young experts and tapping their potentials for realizing a knowledge-based economy.
These endeavors are in line with government policies on giving maximum support to startups and knowledge-based firms to bypass US sanctions against Iran and curb the country’s dependency on oil revenues.
Tehran, the Iranian capital city, leads other metropolises with two innovation factories and several knowledge-based tech parks.
The first innovation factory in the metropolis, dubbed Azadi Innovation Factory, was launched in August 2018 at an abandoned chemical factory near Azadi Square, west of Tehran. The center is backed by the Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology and is managed by Sharif University of Technology.
