EU funds reverse brain drain process for Turkey

Abstract:
Turkey is drawing its skilled scientists back home, as the country has begun to start benefiting from the attractive opportunities offered by the EU's "Researchers' Mobility" funds.

Assistant Professor of Physics at Bilkent University, Hilmi Volkan Demir is another scientist who has returned to Turkey to exploit EU funds to work on his ideas. Also the associate director of the university's Nanotechnology Research Center, Demir works on campus at Nanotechnology Research Center and Advanced Research Laboratory. He and his teammates in the research group are focusing on the development and demonstration of innovative chip-scale opto-electronic and RF devices and sensors with embedded micro and nano structures for the applications of sensing, displays, communications, computing and switching. Demir's work is supported by TÜBİTAK and the Turkish Academy of Sciences (TÜBA), the EU's FP6 type funds, NATO and a joint project of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) on Photonics Technology Access Program (PTAP). Demir's group is a member of the European Union PhOREMOST Network of Excellence on Nanophotonics.
