GOVT LAUNCHES HUF 6 BN RESEARCH GRANT HUNGARY PROGRAMME

 

The government is launching a 6 billion forint (EUR 15.4m) Research Grant Hungary programme to motivate foreign and Hungarian science researchers working abroad to implement their projects in Hungary, János Csak, the minister for culture and innovation, said. Research Grant Hungary’s forerunner was the HUN-REN scheme, a recruitment programme that has already brought seven successful foreign researchers to Hungary, he noted. The goal is for there to be 9,000 researchers per one million people and for Hungary to enter the top ten most innovative EU countries by 2030, Csák added.
