Speaking at the opening of the event, President of Defense Industries Prof. İsmail DEMİR underscored the importance of working on technologies of the future along with the efforts exerted to achieve conventional technologies, saying that they anticipate stimulating projects and ideas regarding technologies of the future from university circles. DEMİR said, “We need to work on the future’s technologies while we keep up with the conventional technologies and application where we lag behind due to several reasons. We expect academic circles to bring stimulating projects and ideas to the table regarding technologies of the future. We will surely conduct the required studies on the requirements in this field and Turkey’s needs, but then again critical responsibilities fall upon our universities regarding technological depth and focus subjects. The industry is an ecosystem, the technology to be developed here can be employed by various areas along with the defense industry and we have seen such cases. Therefore, all activities and developments to be achieved in the field of defense industry and technologies will greatly contribute to our country’s economy and progress."
