The German-Turkish Year of Science has time and again shown one thing to be true: that nothing works better than a face-to-face meeting. As well as taking part in the official opening of the Turkish-German University (TDU), Federal Minister of Education and Research Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka attended a number of political meetings during her visit to Turkey to discuss bilateral co-operation. Her itinerary also included visits to German institutions and meetings with scientists.
The first stop on Wanka's visit was the capital city of Ankara on 28 April, where she met her Turkish counterpart Fikri Işık to discuss co-operation in the German-Turkish Year of Science and beyond. The meeting was also attended by Yücel Altunbaşak, the President of Turkey's Scientific and Technological Research Council (TÜBITAK). The talks centred around the new 2+2 bidding procedure (a programme organised by the BMBF and TÜBITAK to promote R&D projects with the involvement of science and business), the upcoming Turkey weeks at German universities, the closing event for the German-Turkish Year of Science in Turkey and planned science exhibitions.more...
