    A program that has lent fresh dynamism to science –Momentum at six years can be renewed

    In 6 years Momentum has become the motor of renewal for research at MTA’s institutes and at universities as proved by the work of close to 100 research groups, HUF 4 billion spent in support, and the fast rise of gifted young minds in the domestic science community.

    Shale gas: more questions arise from Europe

    Shale gas is not a panacea to solve energy concerns in Europe. This is what a recently published document of EASAC (European Academies Science Advisory Council) maintains. The stand it took is congruent with what researchers here asked by mta.hu believe, all of them warning about the uncertainties that may be caused by unprospected deposits, decrease in oil prices, and environmental concerns.

    Cameras developed at MTA to protect one of the world’s largest fusion facilities

    Key to mankind’s future energy supply are fusion reactors whose development is presently at an experimental stage. One of the largest such facilities, the pillar on which Europe’s fusion research is to rest, is to become servicable by this summer in Germany. The video diagnostic system of the facility has been developed in MTA’s Wigner Physics Research Centre.

    Hungarians Play Main Parts on the Global Stage of Preserving Biodiversity

    Researchers assessing biodiversity in the future will be supported by a simple and new conceptual framework describing the interaction between nature and society. The system devised by IPBES with the GA of the UNO and 108 member states has drawn on a number of disciplines and term banks. As a result, it is likely to change our ways of thinking and it may lead to new discoveries.
