New Turkey Strategic Research Center (NTSRC) is a non-profit think tank that is composed of sixteen institutes and forty-one research groups. NTSRC is also in contact with more than three thousand national and international academics and researchers. The center publishes a bi-monthly academic journal called 'New Turkey Journal' (Yeni Turkiye Dergisi) and organizes international conferences. In this context, we are organizing an international conference on Science and Technology in October 3-6, 2016 in Ankara, Turkey. During the conference, present situation and future prospects of all topics related to ‘science and technology’ will be discussed by over three hundred participants from more than fifty different countries. We believe that the outcome of this international gathering will be an outstanding contribution to and source on the subject of science and technology for scholars worldwide.
Dear Distinguished Participants,
As the president of the New Turkey Strategic Research Center (NTSRC) I would like to welcome you to our “International Conference on Science and Technology". Technology and innovation imply modernity, prosperity and advancement in today’s fast changing and competitive world.
Turkey has set its clear vision for the future and it has been accepted as a fact that the creation of a more prosperous society would only be possible through the advancements in science and technology.
The New Turkey Strategic Research Center (NTSRC) believes that the herein mentioned goal of improvement in science and technology can thoroughly be achieved through the collaboration with the stakeholders of the science and technology society from different countries. It seems crucial that scientists, business community and governments from all over the world should be joining their forces for catering better living standards for their own citizens and in turn for the whole people living on earth. Having that vision in our mind, we have teamed up with very distinguished academics, business people, bureaucrats, diplomats and politicians from all over the world and have started our journey for preparing for this conference. On our part we have taken up the mission to contribute to this bright vision and to the future of our country as well as the whole world.
I would like to give my special thanks to all the contributors and especially to the NTSRC family and our committees for their hard work.
We are very much honored by the precious support of the President of Turkey, “H.E. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan“ and the Prime Minister of Turkey “H.E. Binali Yıldırım”.
Special thanks also go to our sponsors, namely the Turkish Airlines and TURKSAT for making this event happen.
I look very much forward to meeting you all in Ankara for a fruitful time between 3-6 October 2016.
Dr. Hasan Celal Güzel
