A cooperation protocol has been signed between the University of Ankara and the Turkish Space Agency to conduct studies that will contribute to national development in the field of aeronautical and space technologies.
The Rector of Ankara University, Professor Necdet Ünüvar, in his speech at the signing ceremony held at the Rectorate, stressed that they attach great importance to cooperation with the Turkish Space Agency as university. Ünüvar said: “Ankara University is one of the most important universities in Turkey. An educational institution that conducts educational and academic studies in many different fields. The Turkish Space Agency is also our highest level institution that carries out space studies, which is becoming more and more important with each passing day. The cooperation of two powerful institutions can yield truly significant results. I say “it can come out” because the fact that this protocol is not only on paper is up to the will of the heads of the two institutions. We are close. We know that the Turkish Space Agency is also very close and prone to this. Hopefully with this protocol, we can set up a team of beneficial works for our country and humanity together.
“There are many areas we can collaborate with”
Turkish Space Agency President Serdar Hüseyin Yıldırım also noted that as an institution, they attach great importance to relations with well-established universities. Stressing that there are many areas where Ankara University and the Turkish Space Agency can cooperate, Yıldırım said, “Space is a multidisciplinary field. Not only technical branches, but also social branches began to be represented in space. Like law, like medicine, like psychology. Therefore, there will soon be no area that does not cover the space, we are aware of that. That is why we want to develop our cooperation with large, well-established institutions such as Ankara University.”
After the speeches, the cooperation protocol prepared to contribute to the national development in the field of aeronautical and space technologies was signed by the rector of Ankara University, professor Dr. It was signed by Necdet Ünüvar and the president from the Turkish Space Agency, Serdar Hüseyin Yıldırım.
