The Federal Government of Germany supports the forming of an international consortium to be organised for the utilisation of the ELI laser facility in Szeged, József Pálinkás, President of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office of Hungary stated in Berlin.

Further to his talks with Georg Schütte, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), in an interview given to the Hungarian public media, József Pálinkás explained: the backing Germany confirmed at federal level is of key importance while the so-called European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) is being organised.

Once the consortium with a European institution status is achieved, the new laser centre may prove far more attractive than being just a Hungarian facility, the President of the NRDI Office said, pointing out that Germany's share is an outstanding 20% in the European laser-related research.
