R &D Department

The R&D department and science parks act as a bridge between university and companies. By establishing such centers, different countries try to absorb more interns and university graduates to narrow the gap between industry and university, and improve the employment rates and public welfare.  The main mission of R&D Department is creating an appropriate environment for commercializing research and technological achievements and supporting the development of knowledge-based businesses. In general, the advantages of the R&D Department are as follows:

  1. Expanding and hastening innovations
  2. Upgrading the newly-established companies
  3. Lowering the risks in managing new companies
  4. Practicalizing and commercializing research results

In the same vein, the R&D Department of Qom Islamic Azad University, composed of seven technological units, was established in February, 2017.
