Koç University’s research programs aims to contribute universal science in a orginal and qualified way  and to influence Turkey’s intellectual, technological, economic and social areas beneficially. While faculty members maintain their own independent research, they attach importance to interdisciplinary collaboration and work as a team in strategic areas.
Projects
Our research is funded by several international and national agencies including European Commission and TÜBİTAK and by several international and national companies. As an important achievement, our faculty members are the recipients of 4 ERC (European Research Council) research grants. These ongoing ERC projects are carried out by Kerem Pekkan (starting grant), Özgür Barış Akan (consolidator grant), Hakan Ürey (advanced grant) and Sedat Nizamoğlu (starting grant).  More information about Koç University research projects please click.
