German-Turkish Organisation „TD-Plattform“ at Bilgi`s European Institute

The state of relations between Turkey, Germany and the European Union, Turkey´s landscape of higher education and questions of professional training and equal opportunities in Germany and Turkey were the topics of a round-table at the European Institute in September.

Emre Gönen, Program Director for European Studies, and Peter Widmann, who is developing the German Studies Unit at the Institute, welcomed 22 members of the German-Turkish organisation “TD-Plattform”. The Cologne-based organisation brings together German-Turkish students, academics and representatives of economic and public life in order to create networks and open up chances for German-Turkish students and young professionals.
