Dr. Sorena Sattari, Vice President for Science & Technology:

Creative smart cities will be like a college

Dr. Sattari said in Smart Tehran Congress that it is necessary to develop accelerators and to transform Tehran into a science & technology park.

He added: “In the future, training will not be based only on traditional methods, and cities will be the main platform for continuous training. So, creative smart cities will be developed based on such principle and will be like a college which teaches citizens new skills and behaviors daily.”

He also said that a creative city is one which paves the way for youth to present their ideas and to attract the investors for launching them. In other words, future colleges are not only those ones which are enclosed within walls, but also are parts of urban furniture. And the city will be as a whole like a science & technology park.”

The Congress was held on 4-5 March, 2018 at Tehran Milad Tower.
