Hacettepe University Research Priority Areas study was initiated in September 2021 in order to determine the research areas that will be focused on in the next 5 years (2022-2027) on a competency-based basis so as to establish the institutional research projection of our university. The study was carried out in 3 stages consisting of (i) notification of researchers' individual research priorities, (ii) determination of research priorities of academic units at department and faculty level based on researcher feedback, (iii) compilation of university research priorities based on academic units' feedback.
In the first stage of the study, individual feedbacks of our researchers were collected through the online form available at https://onceliklialan.hacettepe.edu.tr . At this stage, 1250+ researchers working at the university gave feedback. In the second stage, the feedbacks of the researchers were separated according to the academic units they belonged to, and conveyed to the faculties. Based on the individual feedback of the researchers through the committees formed in the academic units, the Unit Research Priority Areas Document at the department and faculty level has been prepared in a way to include the academic staff of our units, research priority areas, sub-study topics, keywords, importance and justification. In the last stage of the study, Hacettepe University Research Priority Areas Report was prepared by compiling the documents prepared by the academic units.
