Isfahan to host 35th IASP World Conference in September

For the very first time Iran will host the International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovation (IASP) World Conference in the city of Isfahan from September 2-5, said Hassan Khakbaz, a support assistant at Isfahan Science and Technology Town (lSTT).

According to him, 158 papers have been submitted to the secretariat of this year’s conference, which is a record high in the previous 10 editions of the event, Mehr News Agency wrote.

The papers have been sent from 20 IASP member states, four of which are from Iran, he added.

Speakers from Germany, Turkey and South Korea will deliver speeches on urban sustainable development, entrepreneurship and innovative urban planning, he said.

The theme of the 35th IASP World Conference is ‘Towards sustainable cities and communities: Fostering innovation ecosystems’.

According IASP President Josep Pique, the theme is closely connected to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which are an important tool for tackling the problems resulting from urban development, and cities can play an important role in their implementation.

lSTT has been a member of IASP for more than 15 years, having organized many regional conferences including a couple of joint IASP and ASPA (Asian Science Park Association) conferences ever since.

ISTT has assumed a leadership position in West Asia and North Africa region and held the presidency of this division for three times since its establishment.
