Eureka and Turkey

Turkish organisations participating in international R&D projects are eligible for funding through our Network projects, Globalstars, Eurostars and Clusters programmes. If you are based in Turkey and seeking funding for an R&D project, your first point of contact is with the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK). TÜBİTAK supports Turkish organisations interested in international collaboration giving them access to expertise and supporting their growth.
