The University-Industry Collaboration Unit is a bridge that aims to find the right solutions with the academicians who are experts in their fields according to the needs of the industry. It also provides R&D and Innovation Collaboration Process to be conducted professionally.
ODTÜ TTO enables the commercialization of successful R&D projects with national and international funds through high value-added university-industry collaborations. Moreover, it supports the development of numerous collaboration alternatives for the needs of the industry. Therefore, the leading companies of the sector, the academicians who are experts in their field and the units affiliated to ODTÜ research infrastructure are brought together to sustain the development of our country's economy based on information and technology.
To perform the most accurate matching within the framework of the demands of the industrial organizations which are willing to work with ODTÜ or receive any service from ODTÜ, the “Collaboration Development Form” must be filled in by the relevant industrial institution and it must be submitted to ODTÜ TTO. After the submission of the form, ODTÜ TTO starts to search to find the most suitable academicians and tries to match the industrial organizations and the academicians within the framework of the field and needs of the project.
After the matching of academician(s) and the industrial institution within the scope of the project, “Project Pre-Application Form” is filled in detail and submitted to ODTÜ TTO. If the evaluation of ODTÜ TTO is positive for the project, “TC Assignment Form” and “Academician Contracts” are prepared at the beginning of the project.
