The Vice-Presidency for science and technology affairs support this issue and universities play an essential role in achieving these goals.

In this regard, he affirmed: the major mission of higher education and universities of our country has been creation of wealth from science. However, our universities are not closely following up this goal. In the current situation, innovation centers can help universities train students, who will create added value by their innovation and entrepreneurship in addition to solving the essential challenges in their path. Nevertheless, these centers must attempt to have an unorganized and dynamic structure.

The vice president for science and technology affairs continued: students are studying in universities, where the course outlines are copied from foreign universities. As the first step, these outlines must be modified based on the structure and culture of the country and by innovative and entrepreneurial youth.

Head of knowledge-based science, technology and economy development headquarter regarded the identification of latent abilities and recognition of successful business patterns as one of the effective underlying factors for success of innovative centers in cultural modification for shaping an entrepreneurial ecosystem. 

According to the vice president for science and technology affairs, activities of startups in the form of academic innovation centers begin a social and cultural transformation movement. In this regard, he expressed: in innovation centers and by forming startups, the first steps have been taken toward a social evolution. Guiding of the youth toward this path will create the cultural foundations for future generations.

He continued: today, the necessary foundations for venture capitals, such as providing facilities and entrepreneurial infrastructures, have been created in growth centers and accelerators. However, effectiveness of this infrastructure depends on cultural reconstruction in the society.


President of national elites foundation asserted that our youth merely requires a suitable environment for their activities, adding: as far as we have a proper environment, we can have modification in businesses to prevent the abuse of profiteers and bring back welfare to the society.
