TESSA Mission & Vision

Mission :
TESSA is committed to drive collaborative progress in education, research and technology in Europe and Turkey by promoting an active interaction between highly motivated people and institutions located at both domains.

Vision:
TESSA has the vision of creating a synergy between European and Turkish scientists and scholars to promote the innovation in science, engineering and technology. This innovation spirit aims forming multidisciplinary collaborations for a dynamic environment to researchers from various disciplines in Europe and Turkey.


Who We Are

Turkish & European Scientists and Scholars Association (TESSA) is a non-political and volunteer organization. TESSA is initiated by a group of young passionate scientists and scholars whose roots are in Turkey and pursue their lifes in Europe.

What brings us together is the desire to assemble and conjugate people who are passionate to put forward their ideas and proposals with conviction and enthusiasm. The common sense of us is “UNLIMITED SCIENCE and KNOWLEDGE without BORDERS”.



Our Motivation

No matter in which field you are active in, to be a scientist is a continuous challenge and interaction with the nature and society, to understand rules and functioning of both of them and afterwards to conduct the newly acquired experience and knowledge to the next generations, to use it for the sake of both. Our experiences both in science and different societies have motivated us to say something new. We would like to offer a new online habitat for the open-minded people to build a new roof to shield the common sense in science and technology and promote the active cooperation culture between European and Turkish societies.



Our Story

TESSA idea was born as an ineluctable outcome of the 2014 Turkish-German Year of Science organization held in Berlin on the 24th of January. The main purpose of the Science Year was to encourage and increase the level of joint activities in the thematic fields of Key Technologies, Global Change, and Social Sciences and Humanities.

Following the opening ceremony TESSA founders came together in seven different meetings from January 2014 to February 2015 to find out if and how a non-govermental volunteer organization can help to improve the scientific network and collaboration between Europe and Turkey.
