Scientists of the Institute of Folklore awarded with the IKSAD “Science Honor Award”
The Institute for Economic Development and Social Research (IKSAD), which is part of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Turkey, carries out major social and economic projects in Turkey and many foreign countries (except Armenia). One of these scientific-cultural terms is the international conferences that unite many fields of Science in Turkey and the world.
In 2020 IKSAD organized more than ten international conferences in Azerbaijan. We can give examples of conferences dedicated to the Book of Dede Gorgud, poet Bakhtiyar Vahabzade and Novruz holiday. The Institute of Folklore of ANAS also played an active role in the organization and conduct of these conferences. The director of the Institute of Folklore, academician Mukhtar Kazimoglu-Imanov and the head of the Department “Dede Gorgud” of the Institute professor Ramazan Gafarli were awarded the “Science Honor award” of 2021. On the 14th of January Alvan Jafarov, the chief representative of IKSAD for Azerbaijan, employee of the Azerbaijan State Pedagogical University presented the awards at the Institute of Folklore. During the presentation, the head of the Institute for Economic Development and Social Research of Turkey Dr. Mustafa Latif Emek greeted and congratulated the awardees with a live link. He expressed hope that cooperation between the Institute of Folklore of ANAS and the Institute for Economic Development and Social Research of Turkey (IKSAD) would be sustainable in the future.
It should be noted that the cooperation between the Institute of Folklore and the IKSAD continues. Thus, a great “Novruz conference” will be held in our charming Karabakh on March 18-21, 2021 with the cooperation of Institute of Folklore and IKSAD. At present, the reception of articles to the conference continues.
In addition, these organizations planned to organize “Nizami Ganjavi 880”, “Dede Gorgud”, “Bakhtiyar Vahabzadeh” and “Karabakh social and Human Sciences” conferences in July, August and September of the current year.
