Scientific Research Projects (SRP) are support programs for TEDU faculty members to revitalize the academic research environment and make new research possible. This support program aims to evaluate project proposals, approve and support them, provide services required by them, observe their progress, evaluate the results and to share them with the public. It is basically provision of seed funding. Although SPR aims to support research projects, projects regarding application of new educational methods also fall within its framework. It is important that the projects focus on research priorities of the university.
Who can apply?
Each Project Executive is required to be a TEDU faculty member.
Applications are first evaluated by the SRP Commission. If required, the SRP Commission can form an expert commission and request council. Projects which pass the evaluation start after they receive approval from the Rector and the UEB. Supported projects are announced on the TEDU website. The SRP commission which is assigned to a project is responsible for monitoring the project and evaluating the end report. Within three months of concluding the project, the final report containing the results of the research is required to be submitted to the commission. Also, the texts of any presentations made at scientific meetings and publications have to be presented together with the final report. Publications regarding the project have to state that they are supported by TEDU SRP support. Copyright of scientific results belong to TEDU.
To apply, a TEDU SRP Application Form is required. A completed hard copy version of the form has to be submitted to the TEDU Rectorate Executive Assistant. If the project requires approval of the Ethics Commission, the Ethics Commission Approval Form is required together with the application form. Project applications can be in Turkish or English.
