University-Industry Cooperation

The Istanbul Chamber of Industry aims to establish effective, quality, realistic and result-oriented cooperation between university and industry, and act as a strong coordinator to ensure rational use of limited resources.

In this context, with the participation of well-established state universities in Istanbul, including:

  • Boğaziçi University
  • Istanbul University
  • Istanbul Technical University
  • Koç University
  • Marmara University
  • Sabancı University, and
  • Yıldız Technical University

We created the Industry Platform that brings together all stakeholders to join forces and establish cooperation between Technology Transfer Offices, industrial enterprises and related organizations.

The Industry Platform carries out activities with different working groups such as “Strategy”, “Legislation” and “University-Industry Cooperation Portal”.  As part of the university-industry cooperation, we also facilitate "Cooperation Protocols" with universities to ensure that information and technology flow between universities and industries are handled in a more organized and systematic manner.
