             What do Turkish scientists who are being released in their home country? A group of Turkish academics in Germany has an idea. She plans to set up an online academy together with German researchers.
            

        

        When the heredity Cavusoglu left Turkey last year, he did not want to be a scientist. He felt that his work as a city guide had brought nothing. "I've been teaching for 20 years, and I've been disappointed, the Turkish authorities are building any way they want, and I feel like I'm just complaining." Well, a year later, Cavusoglu returns to science, full of conviction. Together with Turkish and German colleagues he is in the process of creating an online academy in Berlin. For students who want to be taught in video lessons by dismissed or fledged Turkish scientists. The name: "Off-University".
"Off" stands for the association "Organization for Peace". The idea came about in a record shop in Berlin-Kreuzberg. Cavusoglu (43) has been working there for half a year. He first introduced a collection of Turkish pop and folk music. Then, together with Tuba Inal Cekic (42) and Julia Strutz (33), both of whom also worked as scientists in Turkey, he began to develop the idea for the online academy.
For the winter months onlineThe colleagues know each other for many years, all lived first in Istanbul, now in Berlin. They hold connections. Many of the 30 colleagues, who are now enthusiastic about the idea of ​​their online academy, signed a petition for an end to the military operations in the Kurdish regions of Turkey in January 2016, reports Strutz. Several hundred of the 1100 signatories would have lost their jobs afterwards. Some left Turkey and came to Germany, among others: Cavusoglu and Cekic had a research project anyway. They then decided not to return there after the arresting waves in Turkey.
The common goal is ambitious: the "Off-University" should go online in mid-October to the start of the winter semester. "In the beginning, we had no money and no students," says Cavusoglu. "But we knew that the students in Turkey wanted to be taught by the dismissed scientists." And the scientists in exile missed their students. The founding team is currently financed, among other things, with the help of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, and a crowdfunding is currently running on the platform "Startnext".
Start with online conference This Saturday the scientists present their project at the Alice-Salomon-Hochschule in Berlin-Hellersdorf. Scientists and journalists are discussing "from the great speechlessness – science, art and journalism against the war". The event also starts a one-week online conference called "Hard Questions for Peace".
The Akademiker Group still has a lot in common: They would like to cooperate with universities in Germany, so that students can take the new video courses or write a doctoral thesis. The courses should be free for students, but professors should receive a salary. And: the offer should not be confined to Turkey. The association is trying to get contacts with the Syrian scientists' scene.
