In Izmir Cultural Workshop which is realized under the leadership of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality on 24th October 2009, with the attendance of Izmir people and scientists, artsists and intellectuals, a new vision of improvement is determined. The vision has three bases. First one is Izmir to be a city of innovation and design to provide progress in the future; the second one is Izmir to be open to abroad and to improve the vision through relationships with big cities of Mediterranean. Third one is to provide the vision in democratic and participatice practices. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality has formed Mediterranean Academy as a department which will support the vision determined in Cultural workshop and realize the “Izmir, Mediterranean’s city of culture, art and design.

HIS PROJECTS AND THE SCIENCE INSTITUTIONS HE FOUNDED
1. When Halil İNALCIK started working on kadi registries in 1950’s, he appealed to Museums General Directorate in Ankara for the registries which were found in dust and dirt and in a pile thrown away in a cell in Green Madrasa by Sultan I. Mehmed (1413-1421), to be put in order. This archive goes up to Fatih era and it is the oldest Ottoman Archive. These registries have unique value. General Director accepted his proposal of forming an organized archive from these registries. The registries were sent to Istanbul. They were bound and put in order. They were set in good order in a special archive in Bursa Archeology museum. And they have been put into service of researchers.
2. After the II. World War, in parallel with development of social and economic history researches in the world, İNALCIK founded International Association for Social and Economic History of Turkey which he thought it as a platform where Ottoman History would be researched on the base of these Dynamics, where the results would be presented to science world, and where historians, who are interested in the subject, would come in a regular basis.
and he, as the head of this union, presided 10 international congresses called International Congress on the Social and Economic History of Turkey. Dates and places of these congresses are:
Hacettepe Universitesi, Ankara (1977)
Strasbourg Universitesi, Strasbourg (1980)
Princeton Universitesi, Princeton (1983)
Venedik (2005 )
3. The other Project INALCIK undertook is The History of the Scientific and Cultural Development of Mankind which was published by UNESCO. This work was planned as seven volumes. He, together with Prof. Peter Burke from Cambridge University, was assigned as the head editor of the fifth volume which comprises the years of 1500-1800 of this work. The book was Published in 1999. (History of Humanity-Scientific and Cultural Development: From the Sixteenth to the Eighteenth Century, London: Routledge, 1906).
4. Halil İNALCIK
Research Project / Istanbul History according to Ecclesiastical Registries: He started a new Project on evaluating city archive which contains about ten thousand books from Istanbul Ecclesiastical Court registries collections for Istanbul History in 1980’s. (This archive was placed in a special building of Office of Mufti of Istanbul. This archive was organized as a result of increasing interest in Islamic sciences and Islamic Law in II. Abdulhamid (1876-1905) era. It was attached to Shayk al-islam. This archive is primarily important not only for Istanbul History but also for general Ottoman city, craftsmen, trade, and law history.) Prof. İNALCIK came together with Prof. A. Kuran, Prof. Z. Toprak for this purpose. He sought ways to establish an institute or a foundation. Committee became larger when Prof. N. Atasoy joined into it. Establishing a foundation or an institute was planned. Because of the difficulties in obtaining financial sources, realizing the Project delayed a while. In the end, it was decided with the attempt of Prof. Atasoy that the Project would be started as a Project attached to Istanbul University Literature Faculty Art history center. The Project has been maintained with Sabancı University – Packard Humanities Institute (PHI) partnership since 1999. the first book of the Project was published with the title Istanbul Court Ecclesiastical Registry no:121 (prepared by S.N.Aykut, Istanbul, 2006)
5. Halil İnalcık founded Center for Ottoman Studies in Bilkent University in 2003. Halil İNALCIK donated copies of documents and books which he collected from different archives for years, research texts which were not completed, more than 1000 offprints and other materials to this center. It will be put into use of researchers in the center where classification Works have been carried out in the near future. Yalova Municipality Halil İNALCIK Research Institute
