Tehran Municipality has prepared a list of the capital’s technological needs and called on local startups to help devise innovative solutions for addressing them.
During a Monday conference at Azadi Innovation Factory in the capital, Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi announced that TM has joined the Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology and listed 400 tech needs related to urban management and services on the municipality’s website, Tehran.ir.
Hanachi added that the online platform can help teams active in different tech fields to introduce their problem-solving ideas and help TM remove deficiencies, the government website Dolat.ir reported.
Jointly organized by the vice presidential office and Pardis Tech Park, the event was also attended by Vice President Sorena Sattari and Tehran’s Governor General Anoushiravan Mohseni Bandpey.
Addressing the conference, Tehran’s mayor said, “With over 30% of the country’s financial turnover, 25% of GDP, 2% of total area and 20% of Iran’s population, Tehran is a befitting ground for the expansion of tech-based businesses.”
Hanachi noted that localization of subway trains and promotion of electric bikes were the latest efforts by tech teams, which will deliver desirable results, if supported.
