As Manisa IP, we value our new generations, to whom we will entrust our future, and their innovative ideas. We know that they will sign many projects that will make our country a pioneer. It is our duty to create such platforms where our young talents can produce projects.

While working for the 2023 targets of our country, our biggest capital in the development of industry and technology is our young human resources. For this reason, we want to support our University, which is making great efforts to raise our young people according to our needs, to motivate existing talents and especially to increase their analytical thinking abilities and their tendency to teamwork. For this reason, these events, the first of which coincided with the last days of this year, will continue in the coming period.

Manisa Celal Bayar University Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet ATAÇ said, “This Hackathon event, which we organized with the cooperation of Manisa Industrial Park, attracted great attention among our youth, and it was a source of pride for us as it was a first in Turkey.

Our primary goals are to be a pioneer in realizing what our young people have learned and dreamed of with projects, to enable them to develop and exhibit their skills, and to contribute to the construction of the Turkey of the future through such activities.

Hackathon, which we held for the first time, made an impact in the whole Aegean Region and we will organize events that will open new horizons for our youth in line with these goals, together with the Manisa Industrial Park in the coming periods.” said.
