In this research , at first by reviewing the literature  conceptual framework of national innovation system of Iran is presented. Then, in a field study by distribution of 350 questionnaires among Iranian innovation experts  and specialists and using structural equation modeling technique , analyzing of interactions and their impacts on each other and effectiveness of national innovation system has been done. In this research, the elements of NIS of Iran consists of strategies of  transfer and diffusion of technology, structural elements, innovation drivers  and legislations frameworks. Findings of this research show that the most important systemic failure of NIS of Iran  is lack of effectiveness of legislations frameworks’  impacts on innovation drivers. Identification and analysis of systemic failures can lead to appropriate policies for each elements and at last upgrade the performance of national innovation system.
