The paper presents some of the main scientific results achieved within the framework of a recently completed NATO Science for Peace and Security research project. The project aimed to harmonize the different seismic risk maps of Romania, Bulgaria, and the Republic of Moldova, and to develop standard maps in Eurocode 8 format, reflecting the real trans-boundary geophysical characteristics. In order to achieve these results, an important amount of research work in the field was carried out by the project teams of the three countries. The project also involved training of young scientists in the fields of seismic hazard, vulnerability and risk, organizing of seminars and workshops with international experts, and upgrading the national seismic networks with new digital equipments. The general coordination of project activities, and the evaluation of the project progress, were performed by a scientific team from the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey.

The Harmonization of Seismic Hazard Maps in the Western Balkan Countries Project (BSHAP) was funded for 7 years by NATO-Science for Peace Program to support the preparation of new seismic hazard maps of the Western Balkan Region using modern scientific tools. One of the most important outputs of the BSHAP is an updated and unified BSHAP earthquake catalogue that is compiled directly from the datasets of earthquake data providers of the region. In the framework of BSHAP, the regional free field strong motion...
Challenges for Sustained Observing and Forecasting Systems in the Mediterranean Sea
Tintore, Joaquin; et. al. (2019-09-13)
The Mediterranean community represented in this paper is the result of more than 30 years of EU and nationally funded coordination, which has led to key contributions in science concepts and operational initiatives. Together with the establishment of operational services, the community has coordinated with universities, research centers, research infrastructures and private companies to implement advanced multi-platform and integrated observing and forecasting systems that facilitate the advancement of oper...
Collaborative interdisciplinary astrobiology research: a bibliometric study of the NASA Astrobiology Institute
TAŞKIN, ZEHRA; Aydınoğlu, Arsev Umur (2015-06-01)
This study aims to undertake a bibliometric investigation of the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI) funded research that was published between 2008 and 2012 (by teams of Cooperative Agreement Notice Four and Five). For this purpose, the study creates an inventory of publications co-authored through NAI funding and investigates journal preferences, international and institutional collaboration, and citation behaviors of researchers to reach a better understanding of interdisciplinary and collaborative astrobi...
Multidimensional approach to link between trust and health before and after COVID-19: Nationwide investigations based on social capital theory
TOSYALI, AHMET FURKAN; Öner Özkan, Bengi; Harma, Mehmet; Department of Psychology (2022-5)
The current research was part of a larger project, funded by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), examining the link between psychosocial factors and health-related outcomes. A pilot study showed that the items could adequately be used, and bivariate relationships were consistent with the hypotheses. In Study 1, the hypotheses were examined in a representative sample of the Turkish population. Bonding and linking aspects were positively related to SRH; however, bridging asp...
Impact analysis of industrial research and development subsidy programs in Turkey: an appraisal of quantitative approaches
Tandoğan, Vedat Sinan; Pamukcu, Mehmet Teoman; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2011)
This thesis has two objectives in the field of policy evaluation that recently received extensive attention from international science and technology community. First, an attempt is made to examine, in the Turkish context, the effects of public subsidies on private research and development (R&D), selecting and implementing a suitable empirical methodology. Second, in the context of emerging economies, it aims to contribute to the existing impact analysis literature by providing an evaluation study for the p...
