Istanbul Bilgi University Turkey

As Bilgi University we are keen for international collaboration on all SSH and ICT subjects. Please find the detailed information about our University from:   We specilally search partners for the following projects: 1. SSH.2013.4.3-1. EU-India Social Sciences and Humanities Platform We want to extend the already existing project between India-UK-Germany led by Prof Martin Bauer of London school of Economics: The project is about public understanding of science: Modern societies performs their understanding of issues in conferences, opinion polling, scoping exercises, everyday conversations and mass media coverage where the sciences are granted variable cultural authority. This Indo-European network will construct a system of science culture indicators based on news analysis and on attitude measures. Trends in science news (1990-2010; intensity, positioning, issues) are linked to trends in public attitudes to science (interest, attitude, knowledge, engagement: Eurobarometer & NCAER surveys, 1989-2010). The network mobilises and develops joint expertise in discourse analysis, computer-assisted text analysis, large scale survey research, and sophisticated statistical techniques to track the cultural authority of science.   2. SSH.2013.7.1-1. Post-carbon cities in Europe: A long-term outlook We are collaborating with Dublin City University and IBM on this project: The aim of the project is to develop a roadmap for the future post-carbon cities. For this purpose, we aim to use both classical quantitative forecasting techniques with different qualitative , semiotics and text analysis methodologies for discovering how the future post-carbon cities are imagined in the public mind.
