Budapest Knowledge Hub

Aiming to promote interdisciplinary scientific discourse with a regional and European focus through stimulating new links and networks of expertise in the wider Danube region, the Budapest Hub started its operation on 1 January 2021. Based on a collaboration agreement between Academia Europaea and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences signed on 9 December 2020, the Budapest Hub is hosted by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA), with its administration located at the Secretariat of MTA in Budapest.

In line with its mission, the Budapest Hub will rely both on the community of AE members and the public association of the MTA, including members of MTA’s recently established young academy. It will be strongly committed to co-operate with the network of AE hubs across Europe, while aiming to establish collaboration with the Young Academy of Europe as well. It is going to promote in particular the involvement of young scientists and scientists from the Danube region in the design and delivery of its activities.

The new knowledge hub of AE in Budapest was opened at an online launch event on 9 December 2020:
