The Turkish National Agency organized KA107 ICM Informative Meeting for beginner universities which will start writing KA107 ICM projects fort he next application term. Being one of the most successful universities of which projects are eligible for the grant, Kütahya Dumlupınar University was represented by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Oktay ŞAHBAZ who is the Head of International Relations Office.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Oktay ŞAHBAZ shared his experience in how to write KA107 projects with experienced and inexperienced universities. Stating that each project writing period has difficulties in terms of time management and writing process, he also pointed out that KA107 ICM project writing has also many advantages taking into consideration the internationalization of the institutions and academic repute. Giving step by step instructions about how to write KA107 ICM projects, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Oktay ŞAHBAZ said, “Writing a KA107 ICM project is not such a challenging process if you know what to do. What you should do is to read the documents provided by the Turkish National Agency carefully and pay attention to some specific points about your possible partner institutions. As KDPU, our Erasmus+ coordinators and I are always ready to help you in this process. What we want is a well-represented Turkey in partner countries. For this reason, we believe sharing knowledge and helping each other is the most reasonable thing we can do for our institutions and country. Each one of you is our rival in this big race but I do not find sharing experiences and exchanging ideas risky at all.”
After the questions of other universities were answered by Kütahya Dumlupınar University, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Oktay ŞAHBAZ received a gift for his presentation and attendance at the meeting.
