The molecular diagnostics of tumour, inflammatory diseases and cardiovascular diseases highly endemic in Hungary, and the development of production and logistics systems essential for industrial operation will be the core focus areas of the two new domestic excellence centres which are among the ten winners in the “Teaming” action, the most prestigious one in the Widening pillar of the Horizon 2020 framework programme.

 

Sustainability, marketable ideas, own innovation funds, long-term budget planning. These are the pillars on which domestic businesses should build their applications for RDI funds, primarily because from 2020 the focus will shift from the current abundance of domestic sources to EU funds that can be won in international competition – said Zsolt Monszpart, Vice President for Innovation and General Affairs of the NRDI Office to Portfolio.hu at the EU Funds 2017 thematic conference. To make this trend clear to stakeholders, the NRDI Office invited to the conference the heads of some of the domestic businesses which successfully applied for funding under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme. They gave an account of their experience at a round table discussion, explaining how their funded H2020 projects boosted their business and interconnected them to the global market.

thinkBDPST

The large-scale innovation forum of the region has been organised for the second time in the Hungarian capital. At the strategic conference called think.BDPST, representatives of the economic, governmental, and scientific spheres discussed break-out points of the region in the fields of digital economy, the transformation of labour market, the education, healthcare, and pharmaceutics.

 

The AAL Call 2017 is now open for project proposals aimed at the innovative integration of existing ICT solutions or the development of new ones to support the ambient assisted living of the older adults. Representatives of the joint financed programme, from the European Commission and the participating countries including Hungary, held a two-day meeting on 9–10 April at the NRDI Office in Budapest, on the financial and coordination tasks of this year’s call and further directions of the programme.

Pyber László

The research objective of academician László Pyber may also qualify as a milestone in classic and more recent branches of mathematics, such as computer science. The professor of the Alfréd Rényi Research Institute of Mathematics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences won an ERC Advanced Grant, one of the most prestigious grants of the European Research Council (ERC) supporting discovery research. László Pyber and his research team has been assisted by the bridging fund of NRDI Fund over the past one-and-a-half years on his way to the grant. We asked the professor about the winning research project.
