The government has allocated HUF 64 billion from European Union structural funds to support a superlaser project in Szeged, National Development Ministry state secretary Ágnes Molnár told MTI.
Brussels has to favourably assess materials to be prepared by experts in Hungary for the funding to be paid out, Molnár said.
Hungary, the Czech Republic and Romania won a joint bid for the EU Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) project that will open new avenues to reveal the secrets of matter on ultra-short timescales, in October 2009. The University of Szeged is hosting the project in Hungary. (MTI - Econews)
