MRC Institutes have been quite
active in the 6. Framework Programme (FP6) from the very beginning. Currently,
four institutes have running FP6 projects. The Energy Institute and the
Food Institute have shown outstanding success in the Programme. They have
been prominent in the number of supported project participations. The
Energy Institute's portfolio of FP6 projects includes two "Center of Excellence"
contracts on Hydrogen Energy and Biomass Gasification. The Food Institute
has participated in a wide range of FP6 projects on "Food Quality and
Safety", one of the priority areas of the Programme. The Earth and Marine
Sciences Institute has participated in two projects. This Institute is
also active in "Transnational Access" to Research Infrastructures through
FP6. The Chemistry and Environment Institute has successfully completed
one SSA project as coordinator and started a new IP as partner.
The EU Framework Programme Office
gives support to all institutes of TUBITAK at Gebze Campus. For possible
cooperation with MRC Institutes in the Framework Programmes, one can establish
contact through this office or write directly to the FP contact persons
of the institutes on their respective pages.
