The National Research, Development and Innovation Office has announced a new call for applications to encourage businesses operating in Hungary to involve Hungarian students studying in UK higher education institutions as summer interns, in their R&D and innovation activities.

At these events the experts of the NRDI Office provide information and practical advice, and they are also ready to answer questions arising throughout the application process.

Convincing performance, advanced research achievements, products of new developments, direct and indirect social benefits by the enabling power of innovation are at the focus of the highlighted gallery of completed projects all worthy of public attention.
