Wider Europe, deeper integration? "Constructing Europe" network (EU-CONSENT)

Eralp, Atilla
EU-CONSENT" as a network of excellence for joint research and teaching will look at the construction of a new Europe especially from 2005-2008. It will address the question of the mutual reinforcing effects of deepening and widening by developing and wor king with three sets of expectations for analysing the past and developing an innovative framework for the future integration beyond Western Europe. Within such a conceptual framework 25 teams will test lessons from the past in view of their academic and political validity for discussing visions and scenarios for the future. The major leitmotiv is that the Union is in the full process of reinventing itself - a development which is however difficult to grasp and explain. The common framework will include integrating activities (conferences, workshops, activities in plenum and teams), common research (EU-25 Watch, CONSENT-WEB), teaching activities (traditional / virtual courses, virtual study units on EU deepening and widening, PhD Centre of Excellence an d internships for young researchers) and dissemination activities (public events and common publications). The results of the integrating activities will flow into common data-bases such as the E-Library, a multilingual glossary on EU deepening and wideni ng, bibliographies and core curricula, which will all be made available on the CONSENT-WEB. It will also offer yardsticks for observing the progress made by the whole project. The open character of the network which aims at being a "network of networks", together with a full integration of young researchers into the network, respect of gender equality and concern for sustainability, are the core principles of EU-CONSENT. Its management will be based upon a consolidated structure, following a decentralis ed approach. As an academic, and policy-oriented network EU-CONSENT will be closely linked to political and administrative decision-makers on EU and national level as well as to civil socie

The main aim of this proposal is to establish and strengthen long-term new research partnerships between European Research Area (ERA) institutions and respected research institutions in USA that are specifically working on European studies. The proposal aims to create a network platform that involves partners awarded as Jean Monnet Center of Excellence in EU Studies, foster transfer and exchange of knowledge with a special focus on Euro-Transatlantic comparative perspective. Thus, the project aims not only ...

Ayata, Ayşe(2008-3-31)
The main objective of this project is to foster international cooperation between the EU and the INCO countries by organising workshops, forming expert groups, and providing policy recommendations to officials and other stakeholders on global migration. The project focuses on the Western Balkans; Caucasus; Russia, Eastern Mediterranean and Turkey. More specifically, the project aims to contribute to the European Research Area through the creation of a common platform. It will enable interested parties from ...
Moving STEM Beyond Schools: Students' Perceptions about an Out-of-School STEM Education Program
Baran, Evrim; BİLİCİ, SEDEF CANBAZOĞLU; Mesutoğlu, Canan; Ocak, Ceren (2016-01-01)
Recent reports call for reformed education policies in Turkey in accordance with the need to develop students' knowledge and skills about STEM education and improving STEM workforce in the country. This research implemented an integrated out-of-school STEM education program for 6th grade students who come from disadvantaged areas in a large urban city in Turkey. The study investigated students' perceptions about the STEM activities implemented in the program. Forty 6th grade students (15 female) studying in...
Transformation and the "politics of conditionality" : a comparative analysis of Poland and Romania until the mid-1990s
Akşit, Sait; Yalman, Osman Galip; Department of International Relations (2006)
This thesis examines the socio-economic transformation processes in Poland and Romania and aims to embed them in broader structural and historical context of changes. The main argument is that transformation processes in the states of Central and Eastern Europe are constituted by the global processes of change within a social totality. The study has three main objectives. First, it aims to provide a theoretical framework challenging the mainstream approaches methodologically/ontologically to point out to th...
Experimental and numerical investigation of cfs-concrete composite trusses
Güldür, Hazal; Baran, Eray; Department of Civil Engineering (2018)
Cold-formed steel (CFS) structural systems have been intensely studied especially due to the economy and ease of implementation that they provide. A common failure mode of CFS members is the local instability of the section. The aim of this study is to control the local instability in CFS floor trusses by providing concrete infill inside compression chord members. Numerical and experimental studies were conducted in order to investigate the flexural behavior of steel-concrete composite trusses made of CFS s...
