Advisory Board


The Turkish-German Innovation Summit was established by the Global Success Club as a way to bring executives of innovative German and Turkish manufacturing businesses together with the goal of fostering international R&D partnerships and investments. To help ensure that participants get the most out of this summit, we have assembled an advisory board comprised of research organizations and business associations from both Turkey and Germany. We are extremely grateful for their commitment to the success of this event and for the invaluable advice that they will provided.

You can learn more about these organizations in our blog.
