MiReKoc International Summer School 2023
Migration and Urban Nexus: Challenges and New Perspectives
Dear MiReKoc Summer School Applicants;
We hope this message finds you in good health.
We would like to inform you that our MiReKoc International Summer School 2023 is scheduled for 17-28 July 2023 at Koç University Rumelifeneri Campus and will be on “Cities and International Migration: Themes, Concepts, Approaches” under the premises of the EU-funded Twinning Project BRAOD-ER “Bridging the Migration and Urban Studies Nexus.”
BROAD-ER, primarily, aims to build a Research Excellence Network which will foster interdisciplinary research and training at the nexus of migration and urban studies. The collaboration of three universities, Pompeu Fabra University (UPF, Spain), the University of Amsterdam (UvA, the Netherlands,) and Koç University (KU, Turkey), aims at closing the research gap within the ERA while also increasing Research & Innovation capacities in Turkey in such pivotal emergent fields. To achieve this, BROAD-ER will offer scientific and research management training activities to researchers, including research proposal management and key transferable skills (ethical issues, diversity, equity and inclusion, scientific outreach, entrepreneurship, technology transfer, etc.) while addressing research excellence in the project’s fields. The training plans, including summer and winter schools, will be complemented with mobility activities to establish networking structures.
We will be sharing more information on the application and call for participation. Please visit our Summer School Website miss.ku.edu.tr to follow more.
