"Science Bridging Nations" is the motto of the German-Turkish Year of Research, Education and Innovation, which was opened on Thursday, 23 January 2014, in Berlin. The International Years of Science are annually initiated by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The Leopoldina as the German National Academy of Sciences actively accompanies the German federal government’s foreign science policy initiatives. This also includes the participation in the bilateral years for the promotion of science.
The German-Turkish Science-Year’s aim is to bring attention to the importance and successes of the cooperation between the two countries and to build on the existing cooperation within research, education and innovation through forward-looking projects. The two countries seek to use this Year of Science to tackle global and social challenges by researching solution strategies and their implementation using new technologies and innovations.
The Leopoldina cooperated in past years of science closely with national academies in South-Africa, Russia and Brazil. Cooperation agreements (South-Africa, Russia) and continual project collaborations have resulted from this. The German-Russian Young Researchers Forum is an example of these close cooperations. It has taken place three times, alternately in Germany and in Russia since the German-Russian Year of Education, Science and Innovation 2011/2012.
