Looking for Partnership
About Me

İstanbul Avrupa Araştırmaları Derneği (IAAD), is the entity/umbrella hosting "Horizon Europa Partners", and was established in the city of Istanbul in September 2015, under the form of not for profit Civil Society Organisation. IAAD main activities are organised in two specific spheres: a) societal challenges; b) innovation and technology.

We are motivated in cooperating with organisations as partners for upcoming projects proposals/calls, and as associated partner as well in ongoing projects, for the purpose of Dissemination and Exploitation of Results (DEOR).

Our working groups and organisations are present in Portugal and Turkey.

IAAD is active in the fields of Education and Training (multi sectors, VET-based, Non-Formal and Informal), Social Entrepreneurship, Sustainable Development (Circular and Bio Economy), Youth development and Societal Challenges (health, employment, migrants and refugees).

We are particularly motivated by the following programmes: ERASMUS+, Creative Europe, H2020, EuropeAid, COSME, EaSI, EEA, ENPI CBC Med, LIFE, EUREKA, Interreg MED, and DG Justice.

IAAD still need experience to be able to coordinate projects so we are looking forward to joining project proposals in which our current competences could be an added-value, and in which we can improve our coordinating capacities for future projects in which your organisation and yourself could have a central role.

If pertinent, IAAD may apply projects proposals based on your original ideas, or complementary/innovative to already approved projects.
