TÜBA 2017 Academy Prizes Awarded: TÜBA-GEBİP Young Scientist Award to THAL Faculty Member

THAL Research Group Faculty Member Assoc.Prof. Ertuğrul Başar,


TÜBA-GEBİP The Young Scientists Award Programme (GEBIP) - Atrium into Academy Membership:
" An Investment into the Future of the Academy
Launched in 2001, this award programme is one of the first of its kind in the world. The objective of TÜBA-GEBIP is to foster young, outstanding scientists who are at the stage of establishing their own research programmes in Turkey after finishing their post-doctoral research activities. TÜBA supports these scientists for a period of three years and helps them set up their own research groups at a stage when they are in need for incentives. In this way TÜBA tries to contribute to develope a new generation of competent researchers from all disciplines, including social sciences and humanities, basic sciences and health sciences. The Turkish Academy of Sciences considers itself as a school to train young promising academicians.
The GEBIP programme aims to set up a kind of Young Academy of scientists under the age of 40. Aside from a grant provided for a period of three years, a member of the Academy is assigned as the mentor, and an environment of solidarity and interaction is created through joint meetings held with Academy members."
