Bilim Park is a scientific research and development centre open for Turkish and foreign research and educational institutions, and business representatives. This centre is an essential link connecting innovative technologies and knowledge-intensive companies, embodying a synergy of scientific research, studies and practical implementation of ideas. The centre consists of two interconnected parts forming a single function
Although most incubators offer their clients office space and shared administrative services, the heart of a true business incubation program are the services it provides to startup companies. More than half of incubation programs surveyed by the National Business Incubation Association in 2006 reported that they also served affiliate or virtual clients..
This multidisciplinary incubator building provides users with an opportunity to work in multi-disciplinary teams and to enable them to perform in a role/discipline in the context of team based projects. It will promote reflection on individual and team working and the multi-disciplinary nature of built environment projects.
