4th National Polar Science Workshop & 1st Polar Sciences Education and Outreach Festival

With the establishment of TÜBİTAK Marmara Research Center Polar Research Institute (TÜBİTAK MAM KARE) in 2019, a scientific body has come to life to serve as an umbrella organization in Turkey. Polar Research Institute, which is in charge of many researches and activities from the implementation of 2018-2022 National Polar Science Program to the performing of Scientific Polar Expeditions, will hold the 4th National Polar Science Workshop on the 22nd October and the Festival of Polar Sciences Education and Outreach on 22nd and 23rd October 2020 in the Gebze Campus of TÜBİTAK.

Under the auspices of the Presidency of Republic of Turkey and with the support of the Ministry of Industry and Technology, “National Polar Science Program 2018-2022” was issued and entered into force in December 2017. Under this program, a “National Workshop of Polar Sciences” is held every year to evaluate the results of scientific projects, studies and expeditions conducted by Turkish scientists in polar fields and to discuss the developments in priority areas. Accordingly, the first and second National Polar Sciences Workshops were hosted by Istanbul Technical University on 12-13 April 2017 and 12-13 September 2018. The third National Polar Sciences Workshop was hosted by the Middle East Technical University on 5-6 September 2019.
