We hosted a virtual meeting with the Turkish academic community in the UK. Nearly 40 Turkish academics from various UK universities have attended our first online meeting on 22nd November.

We have been joined by H.E Umit Yalcin, The Turkish Ambassador to the UK and Abdullah Eren, the President of Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities (YTB).


The purpose of this meeting was to bring together the Turkish academics in higher educational institutions in the UK for the purpose of network creation, exploring funding opportunities and building a solidarity among the Turkish academics in the UK.

 

The number of Turkish academics in higher education in the UK has significantly increased in recent years. Our aim is to transform their presence into a stronger academic community with a sense of belonging that supports and promotes its interests within academia.
