European Corporate Governance Network (ECGTN) Project

Corporate Governance Forum of Turkey (CGFT), in cooperation with leading European universities and research centers, has received a generous grant of Euro 2,012,156 from EC within the scope of Marie Curie Research Training Networks (Structuring the ERA). SU-CGFT is a member of a consortium led by Center for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI). The Projects aims to fill the European research and training gap in Corporate Governance by bringing together leading academics and institutions to train early stage researchers (those who do not posses a doctoral degree but have been qualified to enroll to a PhD program) with less than 4 years of research experience. The members of the consortium are the following:

Free University of Brussles, Center for Financial Studies (University of Frankfurt), University of Genova, Catholic University of Braban, University of Amsterdam, Center of Monetary and Financial Studies (Spain), SITE (Sweden), London Business School (UK), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, University of Alberta (Canada), Princeton University, Yale University, Mannheim University, Standard and Poor’s (UK), Hermes Pension Management (UK), Telecom Italia, Harvard College and Sabancı University-CGFT.

CGFT is the only accession country research center in the consortium. CGFT's director Melsa Ararat is serving on the Steering Committee of the project.
