About stp: (300 word)

Science and Technology Park of Kurdistan (STPOK), founded in 2013, is one of the youngest science parks in Iran. STPOK located in Sanandaj, the center of Kurdistan, in the north west of Iran. STPOK has strong links with the nearby University of Kurdistan (UOK), situated in the vicinity (less than 1 km) of the UOK to facilitate university-industry collaboration. Established as one of the affiliated centers of Ministry of Science, Research and Technology of Iran (MSRT), Science and Technology Park of Kurdistan aims to develop and manage an innovation ecosystem that promotes Research and Development and supports enterprise activities and the collaboration of industry, government and academia in a business-friendly environment. The park serves as a catalyst for synergy between university-industry and the region’s development into a knowledge-based economy.

In 2013, STPOK was established in a 200 m2 rental building. Today the 6800 m2 site is home to over 100 businesses ranging from spin-outs from the region’s universities to national and regional SMEs seeking access to the brightest graduates and entrepreneurs from Kurdistan’s diverse talent pool. Many are working on soft technologies from mobile apps and websites to artificial intelligence, IoT, mechatronics, and connectivity - to name just a few. There are more than 100 spacious rooms to settle SMEs, 13 laboratories and workshops, two meeting halls, a co-working space and an Innovation and Creativity Center hall in this new building.

Based on our regional potentialities, Science and Technology Park of Kurdistan has focused on different innovation and research areas such as agriculture, ICT (Information and Communication Technology), Nanotechnology, Mechanics and Elecronics, Food Industry, Tourism, Environmental Science and Soft Technologies including Animation, Artistic and Literary-Content Production. The establishment of this innovation ecosystem supports constructing a sustainable, knowledge-based economy that increases regional entrepreneurship and employment opportunities. We also endeavor to nurture and foster an engaging community of people from leading academic institutions, companies and start-ups who connect and co-work in STPOK.  Science and Technology Park of Kurdistan (STPOK) is an open system that goes beyond its physical boundaries, providing services also to structures outside the district.

Main technology sectors:

Agriculture, ICT (Information and Communication Technology), Mechanics and Electronics, Food Industry, Tourism, Environmental Science and Soft Technologies such as Animation, Artistic and Literary-Content Production.
