 The “Koç University Seed Research Program” is designed to support innovative early-stage research projects from all disciplines, such as science, medicine, engineering, administrative sciences, economics, social sciences and humanities, law and nursing. Koç University Seed Research (KU-SR) Program principally aims to support creativity, free/ out-of-the-box thinking, and curiosity-driven research, to facilitate scientific development and innovation. The program is to be administered under the Office of the Vice President for Research and Development (VPRD).

The primary objectives of the program are to incentivize free-minded and conceptually unconstrained scientific projects, to enhance global scientific knowledge and to promote scientific development in Turkey. The transfer of knowledge and technology to industry – for relevant fields of the research proposals – is a secondary objective of the program. The program is not designed to provide additional resources for projects already underway.
