For well over a decade Turkey has been associated to the European Framework Programmes for R&D and innovation. Turkey has invested strongly during these years and has significantly increased science and research outputs, quantity as well as quality of the research community and the level of international collaboration. When considering the size of the country and its research area, there’s still a significant room for participation in the Framework Programmes. To achieve this, the instrument for Pre- Accession Assistance (IPA) new project “Turkey in Horizon2020”, implemented under the responsibility of The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), aims at strengthening the capacity of Turkey in Science Technology and Innovation (STI) and facilitates integration of Turkish Research Area to ERA through increasing participation in Horizon2020.

One of the many instruments implemented by the Project are three International Brokerage events, bringing together Turkish and European researchers and industry representatives to foster new partnerships for the upcoming Horizon 2020 Programme Calls.
