Over 2,500 elite Iranians return home in 4 year

Tehran, IRNA – Iran's vice president for scientific and technological affairs said here on Saturday that more than 2,500 elite Iranian scientific personalities have returned to their homeland from 100 foreign universities during the past four years, most of whom are now working at country’s technology parks.

Sorena Sattari who was speaking at a ceremony on the occasion of signing a contract for establishment of two new technology park at Pardis New City and Prand City at the Road Ministry said that the Pardis Technology Park will be the largest of its kind in the Middle East, adding that the project will be implemented with 130,000-billion-rial investment of the private sector.

Pardis Technology Park was initially constructed at a 90-hectare land, but last year 280 more land was added to its premises. The significant special feature of this park is that there is no pollutant industry in Pardis Park, and this is thanks to the science-based green economy that is strongly opposed to polluting the nature, he further reiterated.

Sattari said that another contract was signed for construction of the Pardis Residential-Technology Park and that these projects have been contributing to the return of over 2,500 Iranian elite researcher to the country from 100 foreign universities, most of who are now working at these technology parks.

The vice president for scientific and technological affairs gave the example of the technology park at China’s Sun Chun fishing port city, which turned that weak city into a strong technological pole of that country within 40 years which contributes to the blossoming of the Chinese economy.

During the ceremony today (June 26, 2021) in the presence of the Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammad Salaami, Vice President for Scientific and Technological Affairs Sorena Sattari, who is meanwhile the head of Elites Foundation, three contracts and memoranda of understanding (MoUs) were signed at Martyrs Dadman Building of the Roads and Urban Development Ministry.
