UNESCO Center for Technology Incubator and Science Park Development (IRIS)

Since the initiation of science parks and technology business incubators in the Islamic Republic of Iran, science parks and technology incubators have played an important role in Iranian National Development Plans. Isfahan Science & Technology Town (ISTT) is the pioneering science town and one of the most successful in the country.

ISTT is pleased to host 35th IASP world conference on Science Parks and Areas of Innovation for the first time in Iran from 2-5 September 2018. ISTT land is adjacent to Isfahan University of Technology. Through its many years of successful experience, has become a pioneering model for the management of technology incubators and science parks across the country. ISTT is an environment in which research centers, manufacturing and service companies, and R&D centers of governmental organizations have conglomerated into a vast town.
