The importance of investing in advanced technologies for economic and social growth and development is so great that it is mentioned as one of the strong levers to achieve development. It should be noted that the policy of developing advanced technologies requires consideration of various performance aspects, risks and future risks in the investment phase. Risk related to high-tech investment projects has a meaning other than financial concepts only. In recent years, researchers have focused on identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing risk. There are two important components in measuring investment risk in high-tech industries, which include identifying the characteristics and criteria for measuring system risk and how to measure them.
