Biotechnology is one of the developing industries in our country. The specific aim of the present study was to investigate and evaluate "the factors that led to invention and innovation in biotechnologi-cal industry", "the nature of research and development (R&D) in biotechnology industry", "the factors that affected the quality and decision-making of the biotechnological R&D", "the ideal environment for the biotechnological R&D" and "the criteria of a creative investigator for biotechnological R&D". The research was conducted by a modified Delphi's technique. The repeated questionnaires were given to 21 experts from universities, R&D institutes and industrial sectors, respectively. The study was then followed by a face-to-face interview. The data collected from questionnaires and interviews were grouping and analyzed. Results suggested that "Configurational synthesis" and "Social-Economic motivation" were two major factors that led to invention and innovation. Integrating the multi-disciplines, grouping the diverse expertise and targetting the specific goal that related to application and product were the nature of biotechnology R&D. The quality of the investigator, the stability of the research fund, the validation of related patents and the detail evaluation of the marketing were the factors that affected the quality and decision-making of the biotechnological R&D. Stability, availability of new knowledge and information, a stimulating intellectual atmosphere and a leader who would appreciate the value of the research were the nature of an ideal environment for the biotechnological R&D. Finally, experts in general agreed that the criteria for a creative investigator who would conduct the biotechnological R&D should include a high level of motivation on R&D, a dedication to the question to be solved, an adequate knowledge base for creative thinking, an open-mind prepared with broad, up-to-date technological information and persevering in solving problems.
