İstanbul Şehir University Technology Transfer Office was set up in 2011 by a grant received from İstanbul Development Agency of the Ministry of Development. ŞEHİR TTO's fundamental principles are as follows;

Vision: to create an educational and research institution with a global impact and recognition.

Mission: to establish and promote an innovative environment to create intellectual property in engineering and social fields and to contribute to the ecosystem by commercializing research.

Strategy: to align the  competencies in the University with industrial and long-term societal needs.

Method: to create a proactive coordination interface office which renders vis-a-vis service to the University researchers and the Industry partners.

ŞEHİR TTO has an accelerated growth  parallel to the development of the University right from the outset. In the past three years, as the university expanded its space to a third campus building, ŞEHİR TTO increased the number of active projects to 20 with a total budget of 4.5 million TL.

As a part of its foundational project granted by the Istanbul Development Agency, ŞEHİR TTO developed a research management system software called MyProjects! - Technology Transfer Office Management Portal. The portal, which we consider to be the  first of its kind in Turkey,  enormously increases the efficiency and effectiveness of the Office. Moreover, a protocol has been signed with GORİL A.Ş. known as ETOHUM in the South Campus building in İstanbul Altunizade and a joint incubation center has been structured there.

With the highly qualified researchers  and intensive TTO support, ŞEHİR was reckoned as one of the successful universities in the TÜBİTAK 2007-2012 EU 7th Performance Assessment Report. It also took its place among the first 50 universities in 2012 Innovativeness and Entrepreneurship Index published by the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology.
