Founded in 2009, Koç University Research and Project Development Directorate went into a restructuring process in 2013 and was elected among the top ten universities to benefit from the TÜBİTAK Support Program for Technology Transfer Offices. Over the years, university-industry collaboration has increased, technology transfer and commercialization and effective management of intellectual priority has become a priority.
As one of the leading research universities in Turkey, we aim to be a pioneering university in technology transfer as well. We aspire to support knowledge-based development with research-based, value -added technologies and products and to enhance the country’s global competition through technology transfer. We strive for the enhancement of the technology transfer ecosystem in Turkey.
