A new technology-oriented university will be established in Tehran’s Pardis Technology Park, based on a contract recently signed between the government and the academia.
The deal was signed by Sorena Sattari, the vice president for science and technology, and Mohammad Mehdi Tehranchi, the dean of Islamic Azad University, on Saturday, the vice presidential office’s website reported.
Sharing resources and optimizing Pardis Technology Park’s capacities were among the contract issues, which are aimed at creating a more efficient connection among the academia, tech enterprises and industry.
At the signing ceremony, Sattari said IAU is promoting entrepreneurship by investing in knowledge-based companies and startups.
“The move makes IAU an innovative and entrepreneur university that will have a big share of creating jobs in the country. In a conventional education system, this is considered a modern and tough thing to do,” he added.
