Decentralized Research
Collective Knowledge







In Turkey, the research environment has moved away from providing social benefits and nourishing politics and civil society. Researches and analyses are under the influence of neighborhoods; they are not independent, impartial, or reliable. Breaking news, rapidly changing agendas, and a heavy volume of subjects and problems prevent a deeper understanding of the roots of causes.

CORE aims to change this picture by increasing impartial, reliable, transparent, accountable, and objective information production, making data accessible to everyone, and contributing to the research environment.


CORE aims to contribute to developing Turkey’s research environment and to politics through field studies, research supports, data and information and knowledge sharing, and innovation studies.


CORE conducts field research and carries out baseline studies in Turkey's fundamental problem areas, preparing reports on social trends. It also develops innovative metrics.


CORE offers support to enhance research capabilities. It organizes trainings, provides guidance, and develops research funds and new financial models for researchers.


CORE seeks innovative ways to communicate research findings to a broad audience. It contemplates new research techniques and contributes to the development of novel methods that can transform the field of research.


CORE adopts a collective working approach and innovative research methods, leading the transformation of knowledge into societal benefit. It remains committed to the principles of impartiality, objectivity, and transparency at every stage of its research.
