Creating a suitable environment that makes a contribution to economy, science and society with the help of collaboration between academia-industry-students



bit’s approach is based on experiential learning and interdisciplinary work through student centered foundation which makes it unique from competitors. Our priority is to support innovative projects without discriminating among universities or departments. Students can fulfill their consulting, educational and laboratory needs. bit with its student centered structure aim to eliminate barriers and create added-value.

Traditional methods are mostly used for quick economic returns. Since those methods are focused on economic success, added value projects stay behind the scenes. In addition, those that make it to the market lacks sustainability.

Entrepreneurship and innovation culture in developed countries enables students to improve through experiential learning and contributes to technology transfer which can be seen by the amount of patent and licensed work. Therefore developing countries should step up and build a similar culture. Student centered structures are one of the most important step towards creating a unique culture of their own. An authentic environment is necessary to encourage students which in turn would accelerate technology transfer.

Overall, experiential learning, interdisciplinary work and student centered structure are core parts of culture which bit envisions.
