Good news from Aeronautics & Aviation calls: Our 1003 Project is accepted for funding

Our 3-year large-scale Aeronautics and Space Innovative Technologies project which I will be conducting as principal investigator in TUBITAK ARDEB 1003 priority area calls has been accepted for funding. In the project, Dr. Lutfi Taner Tunc (Sabanci University, IMC-CTCE) will be the supervisor of the robotics&manufacturing area; and Dr. Bertan Beylergil (Alanya Alaaddin Keykubat University) and Dr. Cem Ozturk (Kordsa A.S.) will be conducting the sub-projects, respectively.

Our project will be focusing on atmospheric plasma activation as an environment-friendly, economic and efficient method for surface treatment of high-performance composite materials used in aeronautics&aerospace applications.

284 proposals were submitted nationwide for the 1st stage of evaluation only under MAG (Engineering Research Group) section, and 17 of them are accepted after a long evaluation procedure, 4 of which belongs to our research center. Congratulations to my 3 colleagues whose proposals were also accepted (Prof. Bahattin Koc, Dr. Burcu Saner Okan, Dr. Eralp Demir; all from Sabanci University, IMC-CTCE).

The project duration is 3 years and the budget is 2.500.000 TL.
