New R&D Centers
Being one of the key elements of Bursas transformation process, R&D Centers aims to develop innovativeness awareness by enabling the transition of companies to innovative and value added products and also increase their global competitiveness.
As BTSO, one of the perpetual subjects in our hierarchy of needs is to adapt R&D Centers todays conditions in terms of quality and also to increase the number of centers.
Our goal is to increase our countrys identity as a production and export base and also to set a higher bar in R&D and Innovation fields.
With the contribution of BTSO's work, the number of R & D Centers in our city increased by 4 times in 5 years and exceeded 100.
We had a significant role in terms of establishing nearly 20 Design Centers by means of the support from our Ministry of Industry and Technology and works conducted by BTSO, considering these centers were nonexistent in Bursa until 4 years ago.
