The international scientific relations of Hungary are also managed and developed by delegated Science and Technology attachés. They support the international and European integration of the Hungarian S&T community by acquiring and disseminating information and by building connections between institutions.
The attaché network is jointly operated by the National Research, Development and Innovation Office and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The networks costs are covered by the National Research, Develeopment and Innovation Office. Attachés are selected by open tender.

- to give information in the host country about the Hunagrian R&D policy, its implementation and opportunities for cooperation; to identify scientific and technological areas of mutual interest to both countries which are suitable for bilateral collaboration; to explore new areas for S&T cooperation and exchanges;
