Isfahan Science and Technology Town, initiated by IUT faculty members in 1993, encompasses many Science Parks and Incubators in an area of 520 ha.

This town is a large place where a combination of different divisions such as spin-off companies, manufacturing and service companies, research centers and governmental R&D units and organizations are clustered to meet its all-pervasive objectives.
