Space education can benefit greatly from space research projects. Available limited and expensive space infrastructure can be shared between space institutions for better education and practical project undertaking. UNISEC of Japan is a good example of such an establishment. A similar network is expected to be established between Turkish Space Universities. Towards it, a first meeting was held on November 2011. This initiative along with increased Turkish space sector activity has enabled positive developments in the space universities.
