Hungary to organize think.BDPST innovation conference


Antall József Knowledge Center is organizing the innovation conference think.BDPST next year with the involvement of Hungarian and international professionals, politicians and economic decision makers, in cooperation with Hungary’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the International Visegrad Fund, according to an announcement published today.

The inaugural conference, which is scheduled for March 8-10 in 2016, seeks to create an annual innovation forum to help boost development in the CEE region. The think.BDPST conference hopes to strengthen ties between the government and the civil sector with the involvement of politicians and members of scientific and economic community. Organizers would like to establish a platform for Hungary, the region and the European Union to rethink the potential of innovation, the announcement adds.

Topics of the conference, which will focus on the acquisition of practical skills, will include the effect of research and development on the economy; the social, educational and labor market dimensions of innovation; the transformation of content consumption; the future infrastructure of social companies, public services and cities; and the security risks hidden in new technologies.

“Innovation is essential for the sustainable economic development of Hungary and the region as there is a limited amount of resources and little working capital,” Áron Németh of Antall József Knowledge Center said. “Although Hungary has reached significant results in the area of innovation, both Hungary and the region could benefit from such a high quality forum as think.BDPST in the continuous global competition, as cooperation is a great attribute,” the professional added.
