Bursa, imbued with a culture, art and science-infused essence,
is repositioning itself centuries later with a focus on becoming a city brand
centered on innovation and design for its future vision.
When embarking on the journey to impart an innovative and design-oriented
identity to Bursa, we were aware that innovation and design should not remain
concepts confined to specific segments and of interest only to them. In order
to bring these two concepts, crucial pillars for our country's transition to
a high-value-added economy in the context of the 4th Industrial Revolution,
to a broader audience, we initiated the Innovation and Design Spring.
The Innovation and Design Spring has laid the foundation for a leap that
will transition from local to regional, regional to national, and national to
global. This event, organized with the support of the city's governing
authorities, established economic institutions, and the people of Bursa, is a
testament to the robust synergy it has garnered.
The Innovation and Design Spring serves as a platform that brings together
industrialists, academicians, entrepreneurs and the people of Bursa,
fostering collaboration, embracing design and innovation as a culture, and
associating them with Bursa. This platform hosts numerous events, ranging
from fashion shows by world-renowned designers to Turkey's first Home Style
Fair, from R&D Project Markets to Design Competitions, from Fashion Night
to Animation Festival and Competition.
Furthermore, as part of the Innovation and Design Spring, we have initiated
the Innovation League in Bursa, a first among chambers of commerce and
industry in Turkey, aiming to reward and encourage innovative
The Innovation and Design Spring not only imparts a vision to our country's
creative industries but also transforms our city into a hub for innovation
