Two universities in the southern provinces of Kerman and Fars have established tech centers, which will enhance academic efforts to strengthen the country’s technology ecosystem.
The first project is a startup growth center established by Kerman’s Islamic Azad University and Science and Technology Park, ISNA reported.
Mohammad Reza Sepahvand, the park's director, and Alireza Tavakkoli, the university's chancellor, signed an agreement on Sunday to help develop the center's infrastructure and commercialize innovative ideas developed by the growth center's tech companies.
According to the officials, the center will provide technical support (from university graduates and tech park mentors) and financial support (from university resources and private investors) to eager startups, in addition to taking steps for expanding the local technology ecosystem.
The second project is the first phase of an innovation center established by Salman Farsi University in Kazeroun, Fars Province.
