Hungary seeks deeper EU involvement in R&D&I
Hungary wants to improve ties between local researchers and their counterparts in other European Union member states, and it aims to draw down more funding from Horizon Europe, the EU's R&D&I program, Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics said after a meeting with European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth Mariya Gabriel in Brussels on Tuesday.
"We need to forget our reticence as we have the will, the ability, and the skills to cooperate with Western European universities," Palkovics told Hungarian journalists at a two-day summit in Brussels.
Commenting on lawmakers' recent decisions to transform a number of Hungarian universities from state-run institutions into ones operated by foundations, Palkovics said the universities will be "in excellent hands".
Palkovics briefed Gabriel on Hungary's cooperation in plans to establish a campus for China's Fudan University in Budapest.
