The Technology Development Foundation of Türkiye (TTGV) was established in 1991 as the coordinator of the first national R&D support programme in order to prepare the private sector for the international competition that the private sector would face as a result of Türkiye's accession to the EU Customs Union and the World Trade Organization through technology development and innovation activities.Bringing together the private, civil society and public stakeholders of this mission, TTGV has the status of the first and only foundation established by law in Türkiye to develop international competitiveness of the industry through the development of technology. Since its establishment, TTGV has been assuming a pioneering and leading role for "Technology Developing Türkiye" by developing and implementing different models and sharing its learnings.

In a world where international trade rules are rapidly adapting to climate issues, the Turkish industry faces a comprehensive paradigm of competitive threats and opportunities. TTGV is pioneering the development of the climate technology sector in Türkiye by realising first-of-a-kind climate technology projects and by stimulating the emergence of the market.
