A PRESTIGIOUS MISSION TO TURKEY
TÜBİTAK, which will be the chairman of the 47-member network and the chairman of the EUREKA Association, will take on important responsibilities and obligations with this task, and will also bring a serious prestige to our country. Being in constant communication with other countries and being able to direct EUREKA's activities according to the strategic priorities of the chairman country in TÜBİTAK Coordination are among the most important advantages.
As one of the founding and active members of EUREKA, which is a leading platform in its field with its basic characteristics, significant benefits are obtained from the cooperation opportunities provided by the platform at the global level. Thanks to the support tools that provide the opportunity to cooperate with 47 member countries as well as non-member countries, and flexible call structures that can be shaped by quickly taking positions according to the priorities of the industry and countries, international industrial cooperation can be created quickly on current technological issues.
EUREKA is known as an important international cooperation platform established to encourage the research and development of advanced technologies, products, processes and services that will increase the competitiveness of industrial and research organizations in European countries in the world markets, and to encourage the creation and execution of joint projects between countries.
EUREKA was founded in 1985 by 18 European countries, including Turkey, and the EU Commission. With the increase in the effectiveness and functionality of the EUREKA network over time, the number of members increased to 47 with the inclusion of non-European countries such as Canada, South Korea, South Africa and Singapore.
Turkey served as the Term President of EUREKA for two terms, between 1998-1999 and 2012-2013.
