The Research Institute for Science, Technology and Industry Policy

The institute
The research institute for science, technology and industry policy (RISTIP) was founded in mid 2008 through a joint collaboration between Sharif University of Technology and the Expediency Council to conduct interdisciplinary and problem oriented research to help improving the process of policy making in the country. Its vision was to become a national reference point through 5 years and even a regional intellectual reference through 10 years. The growth of its activities and the scope of its research areas along with its qualified researchers momentarily turned it to a well-known centre in the country. RISTIP is now working with almost all high level institutes involved in policy making in areas of science, technology and industry and has developed its original intellectual path.
