The applications will be assessed by prominent British and Turkish academics working at the UK universities.
Firstly, a sub-committee will shortlist up to eight applications for each category. A scientific committee in each category will then select finalists from the shortlisted candidates. Finalists will be invited to give a short presentation of their research before a panel of judges on the day of the award ceremony. Based on the presentations at the award ceremony, 1st, 2nd and 3rd places will be announced.
