“Sustainable Urban Policies: The City-Regions in Turkey in terms of Quality of Life” is supported by TUBITAK 1003 Primary Subjects R&D Funding Program.

Three-year project coordinated by Director Fuat Keyman aims to critically evaluate objects and material qualities, intramural relationships, along with the current situation and the process of change across nine city-regions: Bursa, Eskisehir, Izmir, Adana and Mersin, Gaziantep, Diyarbakir, Konya, Kayseri, and Samsun. The project will develop comparative and sustainable political proposals for achieving higher living standards in Turkey and share them with central/local administrative branches and local sectors.
