The Jean Monnet Network 'Enhancing Visibility of the Academic Dialogue on EU-Turkey Cooperation' (VIADUCT) brings together 40 partners from 36 countries. In addition to partners from all EU member states, there are  project participants from Turkey, Egypt, Georgia, Iceland, Iraq, Israel, Switzerland, and Norway.

VIADUCT’s general objective is to foster policy dialogue and to contribute in the exchange of views among academics and pracitioners on recent developments in both the EU and Turkey. The aim is to improve and to enhance the teaching and research on this topic. VIADUCT’s target groups are academics, students and practitioners, civil society and general public.

The project aims to foster a more peaceful generation in Europe and in Turkey that approaches migrants with positive attitudes to overcome prejudices, tackle discrimination and help social inclusion through intercultural communication. It will aim to achieve this objective via an international peace dialogue campus network of university students, led by 30 "Peace Envoys". They will be trained for 2 years in the Peacemakers project to develop their problem solving, critical thinking, collaborative working and conflict resolution skills through rigorous academic preparation, experiential education and leadership development. Both formal (online course) and non-formal (train-the-trainer camps) education methods will be used. The 30 Peace Envoys will be composed of 6 students from 5 partner universities (except Aberta, which is an open university that only offers online education). They will gather in 3 train-the-trainer camps in Istanbul, Florence, Rotterdam respectively. Each train-the-trainer camp will take place for 5 days. In these train-the-trainer camps, the Peace Envoys will be trained as trainers, who will be assigned, right after the Train-the-trainer Camp 1, with the task of training student groups and creating peace dialogue students’ clubs in their home universities, which will finally become a "Peace Dialogue Campus Network".
This program is led by Koc University in Istanbul, with a generous funding from Erasmus Plus. The project will last for 2 years and it will be completed in March 2020.

Partners: Erasmus University in Rotterdam (the Netherlands), Gaziantep University (Turkey), Universidade Aberta (Portugal), Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin (Germany), University of Bologna (Italy) and Koc University (Turkey)

As Scientific Programme Coordinator for the NORFACE Program „Welfare State Futures,“ my proposed coordination strategy emphasizes three different avenues of networking, communication, and capacity-building: the creation of a Project Leader Council; the organization of a series of thematic workshops that would bring together members of different WSF projects; utilizing synergy effects across projects to promote training of young and emerging researchers and the dissemination of research results to both scholars and the public.

Das Projekt HEALTHDOX beschäftigt sich mit der Zukunft europäischer Gesundheitspolitik. Entsprechend der 5 übergreifenden Forschungsthemen der Ausschreibung untersuchen wir, wie sich die Gesundheitsreformen der letzten Jahre auf Gesundheitsausgaben, Ungleichheiten in der Gesundheitsversorgung und Einstellungen gegenüber dem Gesundheitssystem sowie dem Sozialstaat an sich ausgewirkt haben. Im abstrakten Sinn gehen wir der Fragen nach, ob es ein Paradox bei der zukünftigen Ausrichtung von Gesundheitssystemen gibt.

How European welfare states will develop is hard to predict. People’s current aspirations, ideas and assumptions will be important drivers of change and persistence and of the extent to which conflict and solidarity surround change. This project uses innovative methods (deliberative democratic forums and qualitative cross-national focus group surveys) to develop an understanding of people’s aspirations for the Europe their children will inhabit. The interactive and discursive methods deal directly with people’s ideas, but are rarely used in comparative welfare studies. The project is essentially forward-looking. It will contribute to theoretical work on the main cleavages and solidarities driving social policy in and to more practical consideration of the parameters of acceptable policy change. It will supply new findings relevant to the politics and sociology of welfare and provide data for reanalysis and as a base-line in future studies. Research teams in six different European welfare states (United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Slovenia) started their work on 1 February 2015. The research consortium will be led by Peter Taylor-Gooby (University of Kent, UK).

The TRANSFORmIG project entails interdisciplinary, multi-method research in selected localities in Great Britain, Germany and Poland. Spanning sociology, anthropology, urban and media studies, the project investigates with the help of a longitudinal qualitative study, individual and group interviews, ethnography and discourse analysis how people’s attitudes and skills to act in diverse societies change over time and in dependence with historical and contemporary conditions.
