Momentum Program of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences

The objective of the Lendület (Momentum) Program is a dynamic renewal of the research teams of the Academy and participating universities via attracting outstanding young researchers back to Hungary. The impact and success of this application model is highly acclaimed and recognised even by the international scientific community.

The Momentum program aims to halt the emigration of young researchers, provides a new supply of talented researchers, extends career possibilities, and increases the competitiveness of MTA's research institutes and participating universities.
