Supporting Scientific Studies

MMU Urban Policy Center supports graduate and doctoral theses and research projects that work on urbanism and local government areas and develop suggestions; makes scientists, experts and practitioners conduct research and prepare reports; and publishes them when necessary.

With the Postgraduate Thesis Support that has been provided since 2016, the graduate and doctoral students who are working on subjects related to urbanism and local government in the universities which are active in the MMU member cities are supported by the MMU Executive Board. Besides, research on a specific subject can be requested from academicians and experts in the relevant fields and these are financed. Cooperation on the universities' scientific congresses, symposiums, workshops and other activities deemed appropriate is considered another aspect of the study.
