A science park is an organization managed by specializedprofessionals, whose main aim is to increase the wealth of itscommunity by promoting the culture of innovation and thecompetitiveness of its associated business and knowledge basedinstitutions.To enable these goals to be met, a Science Park simulates andmanages the flow of knowledge and technology amongstuniversities, R&D institutions, companies and markets; itfacilitates the creation and growth of innovation-based companiesthrough incubation and spin-off processes; and provides othervalue added services together with high quality and facilities.
East Azerbaijan Science & Technology Park (EASTP) was founded in the year 2003.It is located in Tabriz, Capital of East Azerbaijan province, Islamic Republic of Iran.
About Science and Technology Parks Science and Technology Parks are the perfect habitat forbusinesses and institutions of the global knowledge economy.Science & Technology Parks promote the economicdevelopment and competitiveness of regions and cities by:Creating new business opportunities and adding value to maturecompanies.Generating knowledge-based jobs.Building attractive spaces for the emerging knowledge workers.Enhancing the synergy between universities and companies.
Incubator and Pre-incubatorAs the name suggests, an incubator is a place that encourages new businesses todevelop. In this centre, newly--established corporations and companies presenttheir innovative ideas and projects and are then supported by the park to leadthem to success. The Park helps them to achieve their goals through less riskyways, giving them wanted advice and supervision in investing in profit-orientedregions.East Azerbaijan science & technology park’s incubator first began its activity in2003 under topic "incubator of information & communication technology" unit(ICT) by the goal of develop & growth of small and medium enterprises (‘SMEs’).EASTP Activity fields of Incubator are as follow: Mechanic & Automobile parts ( Information Technology (IT (.Information & Communication Technology (ICT Chemical industries & Polymer Electricity& Electronic Commercial & advanced technologies
Pre-incubatorPre-incubators are for non-registered corporations (they are not yetready to be registered) or for those corporations that dont have theneeded qualifications to be in the incubator center. These researchgroups can stay in the Pre--Incubator center for at most one year. Inthis one year they must get their work force together and have theirrequest ready to join the incubator center. The services available forthese groups are limited and free.EAST-park have supported 40 tenant companies and 65 SMEs atincubator and pre-incubator from 2003 and now it consists 23 tenantcompanies and 34 companies at incubator.
EASTP Fields of ActivityThe main fields of activity of East Parks tenants are:1- Chemistry & chemical products2- Plastics and polymers3- Nano technology4- Business5- Information Technology (IT)6- Mechanics7-Automobile Parts8- Electronics and Physics9- Computer Science. Of course, as time goes by, and depending on certain conditions,the Park is ready to work in other unmentioned fields too.
EASTP MissionEast Azerbaijan Technology Park is in the business of transforming thefuture. The main purpose of stabling the park in this area was todevelop communications in researching fields between the industriespresent in the region and the universities of the area, with this hopethat it would lead to innovation, creativity and development.Having the different industries working together in a friendlyenvironment would help to raise the level of technology transfercausing useful competition between them which would then lead tothe growth of this industrial pole and the increase of the nationswealth. Thus, East Park is a good example of maximum revenue fromindustrial capacities.
EASTP Goals:Bearing in mind the potentials of Tabriz, EASTPs goals are:- Promotion and improvement of the nations technology inindustry to expand and develop their competitive power in stateand especially international markets.- Decreasing the amount of time needed in the process ofcommercializing between research and industry especiallybetween newly-established corporations and companies.
- Encouraging the establishment of SMEs relying onhigh technology.- Helping to expand professions between differentfields.- Creating a relationship between industries,governmental organizations, universities and researchcenters.- Creating an environment fit for cooperation betweenpublic and private Sectors.
Companies and organizations supportedby the park - Private companies and organizations - University and governmental research centers - Research and Development centers for state organizations
