Deputy-director of Planning and Technology Office of Ministry of Science and Technology says the ministry will establish Energy Technology Park, according to Mehr news agency.
Mohammad Sadeq Khayyatian said the ministry would work with Ministry of Energy to establish the first Energy Technology Park ever in the country.
He added that ‘specialized’ parks would facilitate the industry-university connections. "Development of such Parks would help expand spin-off activities and commercialization of the academic achievements in the market,” he added.
Commenting on the research needs, Khayatan said that the 5th Development Plan requires the private sector to communicate research needs to universities so that "universities would coordinate research projects in line with these needs, with sharing of expenses by both sides.”
