Message from our Manager,
As Ibn Haldun University Project Support Office (PDO), we started our work in 2018 and carry out activities focused on "Social Innovation", "Social Entrepreneurship" and "Society 5.0". As the Project Support Office at the Social Science University, we aim to create a human-oriented impact on the society by developing projects with all stakeholders from the public, university, industry and civil society sectors working on social society.
As PDO, we focus on the project support calls for our academics, students, administrative staff and external stakeholder representatives, and after the announcement and informing of the project calls, a project team is formed with the relevant people.
The first steps of the project, informational meetings, the planning to be done in the process of sharing the goal, scope and work packages, the issues that need attention in financial and legal terms will be mentioned, and the project application procedures are completed with suggestions from the evaluator's point of view.
It is aimed to create a project culture in our university by organizing experience transfer programs with successful project coordinators who receive support from national and international funding institutions/organizations, and spreading the success of the project throughout the university.
The project design processes are carried out by the Project Support Office, by including the appropriate partners in the process in order to produce qualified outputs with a proactive approach to the knowledge produced at our university. As a Social Science university, the outputs obtained from the projects are evaluated as impact-oriented. In addition to the academic value of the project outputs, it can also create an economic value in the focus of impact it creates on the target group. This commercial value has been supported and promoted by YÖK and the Ministry of Industry and Technology over the incorporation model of research academics in our country's universities in the last 10 years.
In the project design journey of the Project Support Office with an impact-oriented approach, TÜBİTAK Technology Transfer Office structuring was carried out by customizing it as an interface mechanism in the focus of Social Sciences for our entrepreneurial stakeholders during the partner research, project design, project management, incorporation and first stage incubation periods, from the idea stage to the licensing process of copyrights.
