The centre was inaugurated in Cruze spare part production by Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari.
During the ceremony, he highlighted the importance of innovative moves by knowledge-based companies in the auto industry.
He said the fine line between owning a factory and an industry is the ability to design, manufacture, optimize and develop.
"These capabilities materialize only by opening the doors to innovation and welcoming innovative knowledge-based companies and start-ups,” he said.
