USIMP Innovation Scorecard

It is a self-assessment study developed by E.U. EBILTEM-TTO to determine weaknesses and strengths of firms by specifying their R&D and innovation competencies, and all usage rights have been transferred to USIMP. As a result of the study completed on the basis of information the firms will provide in 20 minutes in average, the firms can receive an "Innovation Scorecard" in 24 parameters on R&D and innovation. This scorecard shows the current status of the firm and can compare the firm with other firms in Turkey. 

USIMP Innovation Scorecard is a Web-based, 7/24 accessible self-assessment tool used for measuring R&D, technology and innovation competencies of enterprises and determining areas which can be improved within the enterprise value chain in the manufacturing sector and can be used free of charge by enterprises through USIMP members.
