Ecosystem Call

The Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem Call has been planned in order to contribute to the transformation of artificial intelligence technologies developed by our domestic companies that are committed to implementing the project results in Turkey by taking advantage of the knowledge accumulated in university / public research centers and institutes into products or solutions - in accordance with the needs of our companies that need artificial intelligence solutions within their own structures.

In this support model, our companies that need artificial intelligence solutions are defined as customer institutions and a joint funding mechanism has been established in the form of meeting a certain percentage of the project budget of these companies. In the applications, at least one company as a technology provider together with a customer institution, at least one university research center / laboratory or public research center / institute with experience in this field, and a consortium with TUBITAK BILGEM Artificial Intelligence Institute (YZE) were formed.

Within the scope of this program, it is aimed to activate the Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem of Turkey and to achieve the following gains:

  1. Development of artificial intelligence solutions needed by the industry by our technology provider companies with university contributions,
  2. Transferring the knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence, which is already established in university/public research centers, to our companies,
  3. Establishing a pre-competitive cooperation approach in the field of artificial intelligence,
  4. Supporting the artificial intelligence entrepreneurship ecosystem,
  5. Directing the actors of the artificial intelligence ecosystem to an active cooperation model,
  6. Ensuring the continuous transfer of experience and knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence to our companies in need by technology providers and through AI,
  7. Training researcher human resources in the field of artificial intelligence.


Priority Areas

TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Artificial Intelligence Institute will be responsible for the basic integration of the solutions developed within the scope of the Ecosystem Call and the rapid transfer of knowledge to the ecosystem. For this purpose, it will be ensured that the knowledge that will be created as a result of the projects is gathered and disseminated within the body of YZE and applied to different sectors.

Four priority areas have been identified within the scope of the program:

Financial Technologies

Intelligent Production Systems

Smart Agriculture, Food and Livestock

Climate Change and Sustainability


Ecosystem Call

The field of Intelligent Production Systems is expected to make a rapid contribution to the artificial intelligence ecosystem thanks to the point where digital transformation in the industry has come and the model factories in the industry.

Due to the increasing critical importance of food supply and safety, artificial intelligence-based solutions to be developed in the field of "smart food", "agriculture and livestock" are expected to bring significant benefits to the sector.

Turkey's high level of maturity in the field of financial technologies, another priority area, is expected to facilitate the integration of the solutions to be developed into the financial system.

The effects of climate change, which has caused various natural disasters in our country as well as in the whole world in recent years, have been determined as another priority area, and artificial intelligence solutions to be developed for predicting such disasters and taking necessary precautions will also be supported within the scope of the program.

There was a lot of interest in the call in a short time, a total of 22 consortia submitted applications. 10 consortium projects were accepted with the evaluations of multiple arbitration committees specialized in their field. 7 of these projects are in the thematic areas of ”Smart Production Systems,“ 1 of them is in the thematic areas of ”Finance Technologies,“ 1 of them is in the thematic areas of ”Smart Agriculture, Food and Livestock“ and 1 of them is in the thematic areas of ”Climate Change Impacts".


1711 - Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem Call - 2021

Projects accepted within the scope of the First Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem Call and started as of October 1, 2022 are as follows:

Projects Accepted in the Field of Financial Technologies

Projects Accepted in the Field of Intelligent Production Systems

Projects Accepted in the Field of Smart Agriculture, Food and Livestock

Projects Accepted in the Field of Climate Change Effects

(IZE) Artificial Intelligence Institute

Artificial Intelligence Institute is the first institute established within the scope of TUBITAK centers and institutes, which cuts the sectors and research fields horizontally and focuses directly on the emerging technology field. For this reason, it constitutes an innovative model in terms of both the open innovation and co-development approach of the institute and its focus on emerging technology.

Artificial Intelligence Institute aims to develop core technologies in the field of artificial intelligence and bring these innovations from the forefront of science to the use of the industry as soon as possible. Focusing on the transformative potential of artificial intelligence, it will continue to play its part in pioneering efforts to create and sustain artificial intelligence-based innovation, growth and productivity in Turkey. Working with industry and public institutions in Turkey, together with other organizations within the artificial intelligence ecosystem, spreading the use of artificial intelligence and increasing the workforce specialized in this field are among its primary goals.

Competence Centers

MILSEC 4 - Secure IP Terminal


While the MİLSEC-4 terminal offers an up-to-date solution for next-generation secure communication (voice, data and video) in IP networks, it provides an uninterrupted communication service by maintaining the compatibility of secure voice communication in PSTN networks with PSTN secure phones in use.

Configuration, surveillance and software update processes of MILSEC-4 terminals are carried out securely remotely using the Security Management Center (GYM). MİLSEC-4 terminal is capable of IP Network Key Loading (IPAAY) through secure communication with GYM without the need for an additional device.

MİLSEC-4 terminals are interoperable with MİLSEC-1A and MİLSEC-2 phones and offer the opportunity to replace MİLSEC-1A and MİLSEC-2 phones without interruption in the gradual transformation of PSTN networks to next generation IP networks.


  • End-to-end secure voice communication in PSTN networks
  • End-to-end secure voice, image and data transmission in IP networks
  • NATO SCIP compliance on IP networks
  • Compatibility with commercial SIP products
  • Interoperability with MILSEC1A and MILSEC2 secure phones
  • National and AES crypto algorithms
  • Remote software update
  • Easy operation with touch screen
