ABTA Doctoral Research Travel Awards is one of the two categories of ABTA’s new initiative of ABTA Academic Mobility Programme.
The scheme enables successful doctoral students, post-doctoral students and researchers to visit prestigious Turkish universities and present their academic work and network with their fellow academics. This allows the host universities to increase their international research perceptions and serve towards a more mobile international academic community.
A group of six doctoral students and researchers from UK institutions, including University of Cambridge, University of Southampton, Queen Mary University of London, University of Sussex and Nottingham Trent University visited Akdeniz University, and met some of their academic staff and students. The group was led by Assistant Professor Ozgur Yazaydin (UCL) between 24 September 2014 and 29 September 2014.
