Welcome to EURAXESS in Turkey


EURAXESS is a platform for researchers, entrepreneurs, universities and businesses to interact with each other and a joint initiative of the European Commission with the 40 countries participating in the European Union's Horizon 2020 Programme for Research. Turkey is one of them.

We provide information and assistance to researchers via this portal and with the support of our national EURAXESS Centres. The Service Centres in TURKEY help researchers and their family to plan and organize their move to TURKEY, and assist with all matters related to mobility.

Researchers coming to TURKEY can use this portal to get practical information concerning professional and daily life, as well as information on research jobs and funding opportunities in TURKEY.

Researchers leaving TURKEY can use this portal to get information about funding opportunities in TURKEY and can also check their destination countries’ EURAXESS portals to get information about their opportunities.

Based at “The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey - TÜBİTAK” with Service Centers in Ankara and İzmir, EURAXESS TURKEY provides free of charge services to all researchers.
