About the Project

With the “SuTP Inclusive Entrepreneurship, Product Design & Development Services” Project, asylum seekers under temporary protection and local entrepreneurs are developing.

T.R. “SuTP Inclusive Entrepreneurship, Product Design and Development Services” project is carried out by Gazi University under the coordination of Ankara Development Agency within the scope of ENHANCER Project – Common Use Facilities Grant Program carried out by ICDPM in cooperation with the General Directorate of Development Agencies of the Ministry of Industry and Technology.

The project focuses on the machinery, equipment and metal production (MAM) sector, which is one of the most developed sectors in Ankara and provides job and employment opportunities to SuTP and LHC entrepreneurs. A shared use facility will be established for both SuTPs and LHCs to support entrepreneurial development through free product design and modelling, prototyping, entrepreneurship and capacity building services and networking in the metal fabrication sector. The general purpose of the project; To create a joint use facility, entrepreneurship, industrial design and 3D modeling center (3D-CEN) in the metal manufacturing sector through industry-academy cooperation.

Within the scope of the project, the technical capacities and entrepreneurial skills of Syrians under temporary protection and Turkish citizens for the metal manufacturing sector and prototyping will be increased. Turkish Industry will be brought together with the target audience of the project. Within the scope of the project, 4 Idea Development Workshops, 4 TR and EU Funded Financing Opportunities Training, 6 meetings for the establishment of the Entrepreneurship Club, 4 E-commerce trainings, 4 Digital Marketing Trainings, 4 Export Trainings, 1 Trade Fair, 1 Entrepreneurship Conference, 3 Outdoors Event, 2 Digital Workshops, 2 Web Seminars will be given.
