Üntel Kablo has completed its R&D Center
Innovation and R&D; these have become two indispensable elements for the sustainability of competition. The survival of businesses depends on their ability to develop efficient and effective new products and processes. In this context, R&D and innovation investments must planned and supported with projects to be developed. It is vital for businesses to conduct controlled and reliable production by carrying out R&D activities and to become a brand by commercializing their production for the sustainability of their competitiveness and economy in the global market. R&D Center investment has gained great importance for this very reason.
R&D Centers in Business; operate under Law No. 5746 of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. R&D Centers established as a separate unit within the enterprise and equipped with various incentives and exemptions by the state, will be useful in terms of increasing productivity and profitability and enable the required transformation in the enterprise with the R&D activities. In this context Law 5746 aims to increase the international competitiveness of our business and our country, to improve innovation capacity and to create an industrial infrastructure suitable for innovation. From this point of view, the products and services developed in R&D centers not only benefit the company but also contribute to our country. An official "R&D Center" certified by the Ministry of Industry and Trade not only receives financial support but the audits and assignments provided by the program ensure that the "R&D Center" continuously produces new projects and improves itself and its technical infrastructure.
