Our Principles


a) It is required that there will be faculty members and/or students of YTU among the project applicants. The fact that projects receiving support from industry and/or a scientific institution is an important priority reason for strengthening the university-industry cooperation. The fact that Yıldız Teknopark companies are among the applicants may be among the reasons why they are preferred.

b) Those applications submitted by the applicants to the Teknopark Management through an e-mail or letter indicating the purpose and scope of the project and the supports they receive are subject to a preliminary examination, and the ones found appropriate are requested to submit a detailed project file. The projects will be prepared in accordance with a format provided by the management. The Advisory Board may make evaluations over the project application file or by face to face interview.

c) The Advisory Board takes the necessary measures to protect researchers’ copyrights in project applications.

d) Researchers can benefit from technopark supports for the registration of their inventions and/or patent rights.


a) The supports to be provided to researchers consist of machinery, tools, equipment and technicians, who will assist in production, for field and basic needs for the purpose of prototype work in the workshop as well as open work office, access opportunities to computer and internet, the right to use existing engineering and design programs and consultancy opportunities. In addition, some materials and fasteners that can be used in the works will be provided.

b) In principle, Teknopark does not provide financial support moneywise. However, the procurement for the project may be performed limitedly with the recommendation of the Advisory Board and the approval of Teknopark, and the ones purchased is recorded as a property of Teknopark.
