Prof. Acar continued his words as this quantitative progression must be supported qualitatively, in terms of quality, without delay. In addition, in terms of sustainability, "institutionalization" and the necessary changes are also important.
"Sustainable development goals are all related in one way and about half are directly related to scientific progress. In this context, it is necessary to develop a strategic and systematic approach to the subsystems of education, research and development and innovation at all levels and to develop cooperation and coordination among actors in this field. An appropriate education and R&D system have great importance for an innovative economy in order to achieve our country's overall development goals. In this respect, the necessary steps have to be taken in necessary changes in the national education system, improving the interest of the qualified labor force in basic sciences and developing sustainable measures, supports to interdisciplinary team projects, making our country a center of attraction for qualified researches and scientists, developing the mentality and motivational function of social and human sciences. We, TÜBA, are continuing our activities in line with the objective of developing and sustaining our efforts towards the scientific development of our country in the frame of our aims and duties.
