With its location and facilities, Kalkanlı Technology Valley offers more than other technology development zones. Ten properties that distinguish North Cyprus and the Kalkanlı Technology Valley from others are:
Research-Focused: A structure that centers researchers, research projects, research laboratories and creativity from the first stage of planning while prioritizing the research structure and R&D research-focused technology development. Scientists are nested within an innovative and technological breakthrough.
Ready to leap: For corporations, the opportunity to experiment and disseminate new technologies under the same roof that will unite all the researchers in a country which is on the verge of technological breakthrough; ideal environment for realistic and safe pilot work before opening up to big markets.
METU Experience and Assurance: A new and unprecedented technology opportunity that will be started with the accumulation, experience and assurance behind the success of ODTU TEKNOKENT, the first techno park of Turkey.
Academy Waiting for Cooperation: 93,000 students and hundreds of researchers at 15 universities, who have not had the opportunity to cooperate with the industry until now, who are not ready for R & D, ready for new collaborations and ready to use their savings and energy for innovation and technology.
Young and Productive Population Waiting for Employment: The dynamic population with the majority of young people, who couldn’t find employment in their field due to the lack of opportunities, waiting to transform their education and expertise into commercial production.
Multilingual, Multicultural Society: Multinational organization with numerous students and researchers from the Middle East and Africa geographies; opportunity to enter new markets with college graduates with a high level of education at KALTEV who are fluent in local languages and English.
Both Different and Close: The closest Turkish geographical region to the European Union, North Cyprus, which offers different development possibilities through its nature, society and structure, is only 1 hour from Turkey. The social rights and opportunities offered to citizens of the Republic of Turkey working abroad also apply to those working in Northern Cyprus!
No High Costs and Long Standby Durations: Long waiting time and high participation costs after submitting applications in assertive and active Technoparks in Turkey don’t exist in KALTEV, which is the most assertive Technopark of not only Northern Cyprus, but the whole region.
Safe, Calm and Quality Life: Raising the quality of life with natural beauties, demographic structure and institutions; Northern Cyprus attracts more investors every day because of its peaceful and safe nature.
Unique Innovation Opportunity: The opportunity to be the pioneers of industry-academia cooperation and R&D-oriented development actors in a country whose technological production map has just begun to be drawn.
Nature and Climate to Increase Employee Satisfaction: A country that has already become a point of attraction for independent employees, who will increase employee loyalty and satisfaction through the formation of an island in the Mediterranean; the chance to work to create your future technologies in a holiday atmosphere.
Incentives to Facilitate Investment: Investment incentives for the first residents of KALTEV to initiate the technological development revolution in Northern Cyprus, including one year rent exemption; hospitality of a country waiting impatiently for technology.
