TEKNOFEST ISTANBUL Aerospace and Technology Festival is a space and technology festival organized by the Turkey Technology Team Foundation (T3 Foundation) and supported by organizations that play a critical role in national technology development in aviation, space and technology. The festival will be held on September 20-23, 2018 at IGA Istanbul New Airport.

TEKNOFEST ISTANBUL Aerospace and Technology Festival is organized by the Turkey Technology Foundation (T3 Foundation), whose fundamental objective is to accelerate Turkey's development of domestic technology.

All demonstrations, activities, and seminars organized by the TEKNOFEST ISTANBUL Aerospace and Technology Festival and International Venture Fair are entirely free and open to everyone.

The main objective of TEKNOFEST ISTANBUL is to raise awareness of development and production of national technology in Turkey and to support the implementation of concrete work.

In consideration of this objective, it is expected that the teams participating in the competition will be able to design and produce their own technology projects (UAV, rocket, unmanned underwater vehicle, etc.) as a result of involved and detailed technical studies. This task in turn prepares them for competitions to come.


The difficulty and technical prerequisites required for each competition category vary, and therefore the evaluation criteria of each category also vary.

In some categories there are two separate levels, one for high school and the other for university, and in some categories only the university and above are allowed due to the technical requirements.

Applying teams are evaluated for the aptitude, experience, and technical expertise required to perform the tasks at hand.

International Venture Fair will include domestic and foreign technology entrepreneurs, as well as companies and investors purchasing technological products and services.

Conditions, fees and applications will be announced in the coming period.

The festival is open to all ages and professions and is free of charge.

Those who are under 13 years of age will be admitted together with their parents, or teachers.

We encourage the youth and children to visit the festival in particular. For this reason, there will be a field of activities in the festival area where young visitors can spend fun time with their parents.
