Turkey and Britain decided on Saturday to cooperate in technological consulting.

Turkey’s Science, Industry & Technology Minister Nihat Ergun met Prof. Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya, the chairman of the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) in Istanbul.

Ergun and Bhattacharyya decided to set up a renovation and technology center.

“The center, to be established between the Scientific and Technological Research Center of Turkey (TUBITAK) and WMG, will be opened and activated as soon as possible,” Ergun said.

Ergun said the center would not only provide vocational programs but also develop R&D programs in aviation, health, defense industry, railway systems, automotive and online security.

WMG is an academic department at the University of Warwick. It was established by Professor Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya in 1980 in order to reinvigorate UK manufacturing, through the application of cutting edge research and effective knowledge transfer.

Lord Bhattacharyya is not only a member of the House of Lords but also an industrial adviser to the British prime minister.

Professor Bhattacharyya is the Chairman and founder of WMG. He has published extensively in the field of manufacturing and is advisor to many companies and organisations around the world. With many honours to his name, he was awarded a knighthood in 2003 for services to higher education and industry and was elevated to the Lords in 2004.
