To foster sustainable development by working as a bridge between academia and business

Main Activities

We currently engage in research, teaching, participating in policy creation, and organization of events.  We have further projects to be implemented in the future such as funding/supporting green start-ups.

Organizational Structure

Sustainability is one of the core values of Ozyegin University, in which our centre resides.  Under this umbrella, we conduct research, participate in teaching of University's curricula, advise government on sustainability, and organize events.  One of our partners is the Turkish Industry and Business Association (TUSIAD) with whom we combine our forces on research and event organization. We have various projects to contribute to both the sustainable development of Turkey and the subject of sustainability globally.
