Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of Atatürk University and Eurasian Silk Road Universities Consortium (ESRUC), I am honored to announce that First, Second and third Eurasian Silk Road Universities Conventions were finished successfully and it gives me much pleasure to witness a major milestone for all the participants to give a chance to start new relations and cooperation for the participated universities and institutions. Let me thank the university management, conference organizers, sponsors, participants, and all other stakeholders for their valuable contributions towards the success of the conventions.

It is indeed a great honour to establish the Eurasian Silk Road Universities Consortium (ESRUC) together with your continuous support. The consortium was formed as a result of shared concern for the future of the institutions and a conviction that higher education should play a key role in solving problems. The ESRUC Consortium aims to include and serve institutions more responsively to the needs of ever changing world.

Therefore, we look forward to have the opportunity to exchange knowledge, meet each other and search for possible collaborations among the institutions as well as hope that inter-institutions’ relations will be developed and strengthened in the near future under the patronage of ESRUC Consortium.

With this, it is also my prayer to gather enough strength to steer the ESRUC Consortium to greater heights. I remain,

Yours faithfully,
Professor Dr. Ömer ÇOMAKLI
