The message of president

It is an honor to be a president for such a great, important, and intentional council for the next three years.  I will endeavor to represent the council with the utmost transparency and confidence.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to our previous presidents for their outstanding efforts and innovative activities in the development of our council.

Founded in 2012 with 30 members from 20 countries, our council has grown successfully year by year, reaching 44 members from 22 countries today. It will be my main duty to increase the number of member countries and member universities by enforcing this success and to enrich the International membership of our council in the upcoming years.

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the members of the council for choosing   Middle East Technical University North Cyprus Campus as the council presidency.

On the behalf of our Council, I would like to thank the TRNC Civil Defense Organization for their support and cooperation in search and rescue training since the establishment of our Council.

While the pandemic restricts our lives after March 2020, it also prevents us from carrying out the activities of our council as we planned. We cannot organize our symposiums, conferences, search-and-rescue trainings and applied competitions between universities.

 We plan to come together with the decisions and opinions of our Board of Directors after February 2022 and continue our work together.

I wish you a happy, healthy and successful 2022.

Best regards.

Metin Gezgin
