|The main aim in establishing the Office of Industrial Relations was creating a platform where IZTECH can carry out common projects with the industry and where academics and industrialists can come together when technical support is needed, thereby developing the cooperation between the university and the industry. |
Universities are places where basic knowledge given is supported by applied research. The experienced staff, the current knowledge accumulated through time and research facilities at IZTECH all indicate the potential which is enough to realise the scientific and technological projects required by industrialists.
It is the industry’s level of development that determines how developed a country is. The more a country’s industry is capable of producing its own technology independent of other countries, the higher chance it stands to compete in the global market. In order for the industry to produce its own technology, it needs easy access to the necessary knowledge and this is only possible with strong cooperation between university and the industry.
