Welcome to the official web page of the Social ComQuant Project!

Our proposal for European Commission Horizon 2020 Twinning Action Grant is accepted!

European Commission has awarded a Twinning Action grant to Koç University for the proposal “Building the Future: Excelling in Computational and Quantitative Social Sciences in Turkey”, submitted by Associate Professor Erdem Yörük from the Sociology Department. The project has a budget of 900.000 Euros for three years, and Koç University will be the coordinator of a consortium by holding half of the grant budget. The idea behind Twinning Actions is that an institution from a widening country is twinned with two leading institutions from Europe for the purpose of developing human capacity in proposed domains. In the case of our new grant, Koç University Graduate School of Social Sciences and Humanities and the College of Social Sciences and Humanities will be twinned with GESIS in Germany and ISI in Italy in the domains of computational social sciences and quantitative social sciences.
