The law of “supporting knowledge-based institutions and companies and commercialization of innovations and inventions” defined by the Vice-Presidency for science and technology affairs and approved by the Islamic consultative assembly in 2010, has been the beginning of the biggest program of the government to support knowledge-based companies and institutions in recent years. Various important subjects, including forming innovation funds and providing tax and customs exemptions to knowledge-based companies, have been approved by this law.
Following the issuance of the executive regulations of the law and pursuant to Article 3 of the regulation, “the working group of evaluation and verification of knowledge-based companies and institutions and supervision of implementation” was established in December 11th, 2019 by the order of the president and head of the Supreme Council for Science, Research and Technology (ATF). In addition, the vice president for science and technology affairs was appointed as the head of the working group.
However, the prerequisite for support of knowledge-based companies is the recognition of this type of enterprises. As such, the Vice-Presidency formed the working group of “evaluation and verification of knowledge-based companies and institutions and supervision of implementation”, the first mission of which was identifying knowledge-based institutions and companies and dedicating efforts to the implementation and activation of maximum capacities of the mentioned law.
Therefore, the executive procedures of the working group can be divided into two sections of “recognizing and evaluating companies” and “empowering and supporting the companies”.
