TÜRKİYE BİLİMLER AKADEMİSİ (TÜBA)

Research profile

The Turkish Academy of Sciences (TUBA) is an autonomous apex body for the development and promotion of science activities in Turkey. The origins of the Academy go back to “Encumen-i Danis” (Society of Scholars), which was founded in 1851 and is known as the first Turkish Science Academy in the modern sense. TUBA comprises all domains of science, contributes to the promotion of science through its projects, international publications, scientific working groups, grants, and awards, and collaborates with sister academies in the world. Currently, the Academy has 201 prominent members elected based on scientific excellence: 109 full members, 25 associate members, and 67 honorary members. Our members have competency and access to the international profile.

Specialisation and expertise

Turkish Academy of Sciences (TÜBA) has been helping and promoting a Sustainable and Resilient Recovery from COVID-19, as a national science academy of Turkey. TÜBA has also conducted various scientific research from the beginning of the global outbreak. Honor, Principal, and Associate members of TÜBA have taken place in the Scientific Council of Turkey for struggling with COVID-19 and in many different projects related to this pandemic. The main principle of TÜBA is multi-disciplinary and thematic methods in scientific and academic works. To do that, it has promoted the publishing of many generic works in various scientific fields. While we are aware of the global damage of this pandemic, TÜBA started its scientific works for informing people with scientific knowledge in this digitally polluted era. Misinformation in social media and similar channels has negatively affected the struggle with the COVID-19 Pandemic. At this point, TÜBA helped to contribute to reliable data flow through scientific reports, books, and information sharing through social media accounts. Firstly, TÜBA published “The Assessment Report on COVID-19 Global Outbreak” on 17 April 2020. The report has been updated six times periodically in Turkish. The latest version of the report has been translated, published in English, and shared with partner academies without losing time. Transparency and reaching the information have been priorities for our Academy. Secondly, the book namely "Reflections on the Pandemic in the Future of the World" has been published in Turkish and English as the first Post-Corona book in Turkey. There are projections for a wide range of post-epidemic periods, from healthcare to education, information technologies to political science, economics to international relations, trade to Philosophy, artificial intelligence studies, sociological analysis, Environment and agriculture, space, and polar studies. Thirdly, “TÜBA Report on Climate Change and Public Health in Turkey” has been published in Turkish and English. It has comprehensively analyzed the situation of Turkey and in vital areas such as Sustainable Development, Climate Change, and Public Health. Fourthly, “TÜBA COVID 19 – Global Outbreak: Report on Judicial Changes and Interactions” has been published in Turkish and English. The report analyses the effects of the COVID–19 Outbreak on Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Penal Law, Tax Law, International Law, Civil Law, Commercial Law, Labor and Social Security Law, Enforcement and Bankruptcy Law in five chapters. All these reports and books were prepared with help of the following scientific experts including experts from TÜBA, Working Groups of Academy such as Cancer, Food and Nutrition and Sustainable Development, Finance and Environment Working Group, TÜBA Young Academy, and Coronavirus Scientific Committee. Scientists and academicians worked together on these reports for ensuring to receive clear and accurate information about the pandemic in Turkey.
