In collaboration with ODTU TTO, Growth Circuit, and Berkeley University; the “Labsout Program” which was launched in 2018 has been developed for ODTU academicians, doctorate and graduate students to accelerate the commercialization of new technologies at ODTU and to increase the number of IPR-based academic startups.
In the years 2018 and 2019, 11 academicians introduced their commercial ideas to international investors in the program held in San Francisco after participating in the trainings that consist of two modules in Turkey.
Within the scope of this program; with the strategy “Develop First, Commercialize Then”, research results at the university are matched with the start-ups in the relevant sectors and the collaborations are established within the “win-win” framework.
Co2-Tech program was launched in the first half of 2016 and has become one of the most important programs used by ODTU TTO as university inventions are early-stage technologies and they may not be in the investors’ field of interest due to the "high risk". Thanks to the program, the technology development process can be started before the commercialization of the inventions and early-stage inventions can be commercialized by using supports provided by national/international funds.
Through the “ProBoost Acceleration Program” developed within the scope of university-industry collaboration; academicians and companies are brought together and in terms of utilizing the different grant programs under the project to be developed and necessary support is provided by ODTU TTO.
Moreover, according to the demands of the industry, meetings are arranged with the relevant academicians who are experts in their field or potential project partners from the industry are analyzed according to the academician’s field of study.
PHDP (Patent Acceleration Support Program) has been developed to support the competitive advantage in the market for the companies at ODTU Technopolis. Preparation of preliminary research and application documents of the inventions/designs of the companies, making patent/design applications, following the research report processes and paying the attorney fees are the titles under the program. The program which is started in 2018 continued in 2019 too.
