In the same year, approximately 50 events were organized and more than 1,000 researchers, policymakers and companies came together. They have been informed about the Newton-Katip Çelebi Fund, as well as, other scientific cooperation opportunities. We hope to deepen our existing cooperation by signing this agreement with the Istanbul Development Agency. We aim to bring together the universities and companies in the UK and Istanbul and support joint-development of value-added projects by developing funding tools that are focused on science and innovation with the Agency."

More than 1,000 researchers, policy-makers and companies were brought together in nearly 50 events in the same year, and scientific cooperation opportunities, including the Katip Çelebi-Newton Fund, were introduced.
