OSIP – Osmaniye İŞGEM Project

Osmaniye İŞGEM Project was developed in line with the goal of strengthening entrepreneurship in Osmaniye for the purposes of contributing to the socio-economic development of the province of Osmaniye through the establishment of a robust platform focusing on innovative SMEs.

Financed jointly by the European Union and the Republic of Turkey and managed by the Regional Competitiveness Programme Coordination and Implementation Department under the General Directorate of European Union and Foreign Relations of the Ministry of Science, Industry, and Technology as the contracting authority, and implemented by the Governorate of Osmaniye, the Project will ensure the establishment and rolling-out of Osmaniye Business Development Centre (İŞGEM).

The Project commenced on the 17th June, 2016, and will continue for a period of 24 months on the basis of two components.

  • The first component will focus on the establishment and mobilisation of İŞGEM.
  • The second component covers the process of improving the technical capacities of businesses and ensuring their long-term sustainability.

In this framework, the Project undertakes efforts to employ İŞGEM personnel; to deliver personnel trainings; to develop business plan and guidelines; to develop and implement visibility and publicity for İŞGEM; and to prepare İŞGEM to host businesses.

On the other hand, the focal point of the second component of the Project will be on the provision of technical support to tenant entrepreneurs of İŞGEM in line with their respective business plans and the formulation of a current and sustainable model for their business plans.
