TSO Chairman Çetin Başaranhıncal says “The most important project on which TSO and Hitit University collaborate is Technocity Project. Technocity is a special area where scientists and industrialists come together. I believe that Technocity will take our province production structure to the top with academic perspective but this is of course possible with the industrialists to look out for Technocity. The more industrialists and businessmen take part in Technocity, the more scientfic works and Research and Developent(AR-GE) studies are carried out, the more useful and productive Technocity will be. Thus, companies should give importance to AR-GE studies and should absolutely take part in Technocity.”
Rector Prof. Dr. Reha Metin Alkan says that technology is one of the fundamental elements of societies’ development level; however, it is also one of the most important elements for companies to be persistent in the global economy and product their own technology. He also adds “Science and technology world is experiencing dizzying developments. Countries that want to have the right to comment on the world need to turn into a structure which has a high competitiveness in a global world. To maintain stability recently caught in the economic field in our country and to increase the weight of export in the economy, we should attach importance to innovation, AR-GE, design and branding. Technocity is the most successful model to provide the University-Industry cooperation.”
