Contact: Dr. Tuğçe G. Erbay

As the Sponsored Research Office, we act as a liaison to coordinate the scientific collaborations between Koç University and the industry. Our responsibilities encompass a wide range, from supporting our academics in their applications to the external research funds along with the industrial companies, to establishing strong ties with the private enterprise to fund the creative and inventive research at the university.

Our mission is to be a trailblazer and to contribute to the transition to a competitive economy by developing grounds for innovative long-term relationships between KU and the industrial companies for the transformation of scientific output into high-tech, commercial products.
