Sience Bridging Nations

Almost three million people with Turkish roots live in Germany. Almost five million German people travel to Turkey every year. The country straddling the Orient and Occident is one of the most popular foreign travel destinations for German tourists. Germany and Turkey are closely linked by friendship and familial ties.

The German-Turkish 2014 Year of Research, Education and Innovation is a joint initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology of the Republic of Turkey and is supported by many noteworthy partners from the worlds of politics, research and science. Under the motto “Science Bridging Nations” the two countries are strengthening their existing strong bonds with forward-looking projects.
