Başkent OIZ Innovation Center

The heart of technological transformation beats here!

Başkent OSB Innovation Center leads the technology development of enterprises and provides innovative transformation. It offers you support with its expert team in lean production, productivity increase, technology management and digitalization.

According to Eleventh Development Plan 2019-2023 of Turkey (measure numbered 322.4), “Innovation Centers will be established in OIZs to support companies on business development, government support, and project preparation, cooperation with the university, lean production, efficiency, technology management, clustering and digitalization”.

After the 1970s, Innovation and Technology has began to be seen as a key element of economic growth with the inclusion of information technologies in production, marketing and consumption processes. Organized industrial zones have started to go into action as systematic industrial areas in Turkey since 1962. With the world's transition to a knowledge-based economy, interface institutions such as technoparks and innovation centers have gained importance in order to enable OIZ companies to receive innovative services in the fields of knowledge production, cooperation and capacity enhancement in the innovation and technology preparation processes.

The " Organized Industrial Zones in Turkey Towards 2023" report was prepared within the scope of the "Technology Development Project in OIZs ", which was designed in line with the priorities in the 9th and 10th Development Plans, and carried out in partnership with the Ministry of Industry and Technology and UNDP, launched in 2016. The target of establishing "Innovation Centers" in OIZs was included in the Eleventh Development Plan (2019-2023) with the contribution of previous studies. 

The Aim of Innovation Centers:

  • To encourage companies to switch to open innovation,
  • To develop communication, confidence and cooperation with each other,
  • To provide support to companies in entrepreneurship, digitalization, R&D and innovation in order to increase the contribution of units such as technopark, TTO, research centers to this process.

Başkent OIZ is among the pilot OIZs selected within this framework. 

The Cooperation Protocol regarding the establishment of the Innovation Center in Başkent OIZ was signed between Baskent Organized Industrial Zone and T.C. Ministry of Industry and Technology-General Directorate of Industrial Zones on November 30, 2021. Başkent OIZ Innovation Center has been come into operation as of January 02, 2023.

The center has been started to serve in the Innovation Center building next to the Başkent OIZ Regional Directorate Building with the selection of the personnel of Başkent OIZ Innovation Center.
