TÜBA Associate Member and Middle East Technical University Faculty of Arts and Sciences Department of Physics Faculty Member Assoc. Prof. Melahat Bilge Demirköz was deemed worthy for “Rising Talents Award” under the program of “For Women in Science” jointly organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and L'Oreal this year.
Demirköz who entitled to receive the "Rising Talents Award" given to 15 young scientists every year for her studies on space radiation took the prize from the President of L'ORÉAL Foundation Isabel Marey Semper on March 23 in the ceremony held in Paris, the capital city of France.
Demirköz said that she was happy to be awarded for her works by a jury that consists important names from both UNESCO and L'Oréal. Demirköz said: “I am a person trying to attract young people into science through all the work I do on the scientific platform. This award has not only made me happy, but it also has a very different meaning. This award and its announcement are very important for giving the love of science to the youth. With this great motivation, I will continue to work for my country and the youth of my country and continue to be an example for youth.
The project is defined as the search and resilience of the original materials and electronic components developed in Turkey under the effects of total dose effect (TID) radiation tests for space. Assoc. Prof. Bilge Demirköz's studies will enable us to accumulate knowledge about the radiation effects of satellite technologies. With these studies, experienced scientists ready to work in the space sector will be trained.
Who is Assoc. Prof. Melahat Bilge Demirköz?
She served as a consultant for TÜBİTAK Space Institute in 2013-2014 and Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources in 2014-2015.
