Tel Aviv University announced April 26 a new academic collaboration with three Turkish institutions: Koc, Ozyegin and Sabanci.
"The purpose of the initiative is to promote academic research in both countries. Every year Tel Aviv University welcomes thousands of Muslim and Christian students from Israel and around the world, and we will be delighted to extend this collaboration to leading universities in Turkey as well. Academia is a bridge between nations and a key to economic and social growth everywhere," said Tel Aviv University president professor Ariel Porat. The announced Academic Bridge Initiative strives for academic collaborations on different levels, including student exchanges, faculty program exchanges and joint research initiatives.
