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[18] in 2006 reported that they also served affiliate or virtual clients.[10].

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.
