Following in the footsteps of Tehran, major Iranian cities such as Karaj, Tabriz and Yazd are establishing technology centers, which are expected to boost their startup ecosystems.
In Karaj, the provincial center of Alborz, tech officials are planning to launch an innovation center, specializing in waste treatment, in the province’s Science and Technology Park, IRNA reported.
Mehdi Abbasi, the tech park's director, stated that efforts are underway to transform the 100-hectare park into a national hub of several tech fields, including waste management and treatment, which is a major challenge for urban planners.
“We are inviting professionals and waste treatment technology companies to establish a complete chain of know-how and operation in the park to increase self-reliance and productivity in the field,” he added.
The official stated that the planned innovation center in the park can offer professional consultancy in different urban sectors and provide training to the general public, pointing out that several thinking room sessions will be held in the near future to discuss the details of the waste treatment project.
“The waste treatment hub can help implement innovative projects in the targeted field,” he added.
