National and regional growth and development models in the developing countries whose development attributes are far different from those of the developed countries, must be in such a way to allow the corresponding country or region to develop at the minimum cost within the shortest possible period of time. One of the successful approaches toward national and regional development models is to rely on a development model which is based on extending and developing science and technology corridors. This study is aimed at ranking practicable technologies within the science and technology corridor of Isfahan using multiple attribute decision-making process. Since the technology and science corridor are new issues in IRAN and there had been no researches on identification and selection of applicable technologies, the work on this issue was very innovative, also application of 3 methods of decision making for upgrading of reliability is the outstanding criteria of this research. For this purpose, 13 attributes were utilized (categorized into 6 groups) and AHP, TOPSIS and SAW techniques were employed to rank technologies, so that the following order of preference was suggested for the practicable technologies within the science and technology corridor of Isfahan:1) Information and communication technology, 2) material technologies, 3) bio-technology, 4) energy technology, 5) Nano-technology, 6) environmental technology, 7) laser and optic technology, 8) nuclear technology.
