IZTECH research ecosystem has a powerful research GCRIS Database, which includes academic publications/any outputs and research items (awards, projects, equipment, report, organizations); associates these outputs with researchers, providing advanced metrics/statistics. So, every researcher’s contribution to SDG’s are counted and presented in this database. That makes a strong impact on the visibility of our research activities and transforms every aspect of our research on the international basis (https://gcris.iyte.edu.tr/?locale=en). Additionally, the research ecosystem supports applications of patents in sustainability areas. For example, a patent by Civil Engineering, names as “autonomous coanda type water intake structure” and Technology, Design and Innovation Management, names as “ environmentally compatible recycling box with light indicator system that tracks fullness and waste management” (https://surdurulebilir.iyte.edu.tr/patents/)
