Dear Sector Representatives,

The need to increase the added value of our export activities and to decrease the importation of raw material and intermediate goods in order to accelerate the development of our country is a fact recognized by everybody. The achievement of this goal requires more R&D and innovative work and also conversion of scientific work into new marketable products.

To support activities aimed at this goal we, Istanbul Chemicals and Chemical Products Exporters’ Association (IKMIB) and the Mediterranean Exporters’ Associations (AKIB), are organizing the second international “R&D Project Market for the Chemicals and Chemical Products Industry” coordinated by the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM).

Scientists who work for national or international universities, institutes, private and public research institutions conducting R&D research in the field of Chemical Industry will participate to this event with their inventions and projects aimed at creating new high value-added products in a short time or increasing added value by reducing existing production costs

Projects falling into the categories of Drugs and Pharmaceutical Products, Paints and Adhesives, Plastic and Rubber Materials and Products, Cosmetics, Soaps and Cleaning Products and other fields of the Chemical Industry will be accepted.

Submitted projects will be assessed by an evaluation committee the members of which have been selected among leading experts of the Turkish chemical industry, innovative industrialists and R&D-oriented academicians who will evaluate the projects in terms of industrial applicability.

On the 18th and 19th of September 2012, National / internataional scientists who have projects and industrialists will meet at the Foreign Trade Center in Yenibosna / Istanbul in order to exchange information and conclude collaboration agreements

Best Regards,

İ. Selçuk AKSOY
