Having been started by BTSO at DOSAB in 2015, the constructions of Textile and Technical Textile Development Center and Advanced Composite Materials Development Center are concluded. By adding Advanced Composite Materials Development Center following Textile and Technical Textile Development Center, which is one of the centers that are planned to be opened in September, to the work schedule of 2016, it gained the right to right to benefit from BEBKA’s ‘Guided Project Support’. This project, for which the ministry provided a resource for the total of 25 million liras, is in the position of being the biggest investment that gained the state support in the field.
İKMAMM to be an Integrated center
To be commissioned thanks to an innovative industry-university cooperation model, İKMAMM is going to be an center that will be integrated with the production, test, certification and training operations and this will provide a transformation in various sectors from automotive to aviation and wind power.
At the center, which is to be operated with the mentality of private sector by BUTEKOM, postgraduate education, basic research, applied research, product development, production and commercialization operations will be carried out. The center, where postgraduate students, postdoctoral researches, academic members, researches, engineers and human resources that participate in the prototype production are located under the same roof, will be an innovative ecosystem, created by multi-disciplinal research, learning and production. It will create a synergy between the central disciplines where the technical textile and composite material disciplines will cooperate.
It Will Increase competitive capacity in the region
Stating that Advanced Composite Materials Research and Development Center serve as a bridge at the point of increasing the competitive capacity in the region and transformation to high-technology products with high-added value thanks to the R&D studies, the President of the Executive Board of BTSO İbrahim Burkay said “At this center, which will also be a complementary institution for our Textile and Technical Textile Development Center, both important projects will be de developed and important R&D studies will be carried out with our companies, producing composite materials. Therefore, our center will serve as a complementary institution at the point of our companies’ producing products with added-value”.
