The most important findings of this research include: determination of the most important science and technology evaluation models, determination of the most important indicators of the proposed model, assessment and measurement of the impact of each evaluation model of science and technology on the proposed model, and ranking the indicators of five main sections. According to the past studies it can be said that so far there
has been no model to evaluate such firms and the proposed model in this research is the first model specifically offered to evaluate knowledge-based firms.
