MiReKoc Academic Workshops at the Summer School

MiReKoc Academic Workshops at the Summer School provide a platform for participants working towards their doctorate or conducting on-going research to interact with, and learn from, fellow students and top scholars. MiReKoc encourages the participants of the Summer School to become active members of this vibrant and diverse platform. These workshops are designed as a springboard for successful academic careers by examining important issues such as publishing, reviewing, and collaborative research; the event also provides several networking opportunities.
