Dr Hudai Kara is selected as Outer International Assessment Board member by the Irish Research Council

The Director of Metsims Sustainability Consulting, Dr Hudai Kara is invited to evaluate applications for the new Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) COFUND Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme entitled CAROLINE – ‘Collaborative Research Fellowships for a Responsive and Innovative Europe’, by the Irish Research Council. Invitation is the recognition of Dr Kara’s work on sustainability and sustainable development in the EU, UK and Turkey as well as his expertise in EU funding evaluations.


A key feature of CAROLINE is the collaboration between the academic sector, non-governmental organisations and international organisations. CAROLINE will attract experienced researchers from any discipline to conduct research relevant to the themes of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for shared economic prosperity, social development, and environmental protection. The 17 goals within Agenda 2030 are relevant for researchers across all academic disciplines and will be of interest to researchers with diverse career objectives in mind, including those within academia, civic society, and industry. Potential partner organisations are not limited to ‘development-orientated’ NGOs or those working in support of developing countries.


The scheme aims to enable researchers to reach diverse career objectives, including those within academia, civic society, and industry. All funded projects must demonstrate excellence and, in this regard, Outer International Assessment Board members are selected both for their disciplinary experience and for their ability to evaluate the potential of candidates and the experience that a CAROLINE Fellowship would afford them.


Commenting on the selection, Dr Kara said “I am delighted to be invited to be a part of peer group assessors for the selection of new thinkers and ideas that will shape UN 2030 Agenda”.
