Strategic Studies and Digital Economics Center


Policy making and planning in the field of ICT requires the formation of a context that can provide specialized fields for representing, directing, regulating, targeting, monitoring and evaluating the results of development programs, plans and policies in the field of ICT in different economic, social and cultural dimensions. In this regard, it is necessary to make maximum use of the existing knowledge capacities, networking and interaction with experts and thinkers in the strategic areas of ICT in the country.
