Newton for Climate Webinar Series Open for Registration

Newton Fund in Turkey is delivering a series of ‘Newton For Climate’ webinars with the aim of showcasing the impacts and successes of Newton projects in Environmental Studies.

The UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021. The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Within this framework, the webinar series will demonstrate the impact of the successful joint research in Environmental Studies funded both by the UK and Turkish governments under Newton – Katip Celebi Fund throughout October.

Each webinar will focus on impact and outcomes of a Newton project, experiences of Project Investigators (PIs) from both countries and their future collaboration plans. The participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions to the PIs.

The events will be moderated by Nick Mellors, Regional Manager, Eastern Mediterranean and Central & Eastern Europe, UK Science & Innovation Network, British Consulate-General Istanbul.

All events will be in English and are free of charge.
