Talented Turks returning from abroad

World Bulletin / News Desk

Improving scientific and technological facilities are drawing Turks who worked and studied abroad back to Turkey, according to a report released this month.

The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) found that scholarships have helped to attract applications for the return of 172 researchers.

The report said the number of applications from Turks who want to return increased fivefold in 2013.

TUBITAK wants to attract Turkish scientists back to Turkey by supporting their contributions to the scientific work in Turkey.

Available research funds will be increased to up to 30,000 Turkish liras and researchers will be able to apply to a greater variety of support programs.
