A science and technology park was inaugurated on Oct. 16 near Urmia in West Azarbaijan, as part of plans to boost the province’s technological development.

Setting up technology parks with the aim of supporting startups and knowledge-based firms has been on the agenda of the Rouhani administration since it first took office in 2013. In recent years, 42 science and technology parks have opened in Iran, mostly in Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, and Yazd.
