Amirkabir University of Technology Director of Innovation & Technology Development, Dr. Ali Nikbakht, stated: In total, 288 technology and knowledge-based companies are operating in Amirkabir University of Technology in various fields. This center can function as a science and technology park. In terms of standards of the country's technology centers, the management of innovation and technology development has reached such a level of maturity and activity that operating as a Science and Technology Park is warranted. We are attempting to obtain a permit from the Ministry of Science, Research & Technology to establish the science and technology park, in order to provide enhanced services to companies from within the university grounds.
In 2020, despite the Coronavirus Pandemic, the total sales of technology and knowledge-based companies within the university was approximately 112 billion Tomans (2.5 Million US Dollars), with some 850 people working in these companies. There are companies operating at the university that provide medical care and online doctors’ appointments, estimated to have reduced about 2.5-3 million urban trips (between March-May 2020).
He emphasized: "Despite the prevalence of Covid-19, the activities of the university's innovation and acceleration centers have grown and expanded. From 2019 to 2020, the number of teams stationed in these centers increased by 48% and active members in these teams rose by 20%. One of the management companies that manufactures Coronavirus diagnostic kits has succeeded in taking significant steps in production of the Coronavirus vaccine.
