Budapest, 15 April 2021, Thursday (MTI) – Hungarian Startup University Program (HSUP) involving nearly 2100 students from 21 higher education institutions in its first year entered a new phase, Tamás Schanda, parliamentary state secretary, Ministry for Innovation and Technology announced on Thursday through a press release.

Adding also that the goal of the first practice-oriented university program is that the highest-level startup training prepare students to take a solution-oriented approach as the Ministry informed in its press release on Wednesday.

Thanks to the different specialties of universities, the student teams have various competencies and thus, the topics of projects funded also cover a wide spectrum. The projects include applications supporting medical students in selecting specialist trainings, as well as manufacturing, automation and robotics projects promoting children’s physical and mental health or aiming to make transport safer in conditions of reduced visibility. But there are diverse financial or agricultural innovations or ideas designed to make solar power systems more efficient, Tamás Schanda said.

In academic year 2020/2021, nearly 2100 students from 21 universities joined the first year of HSUP. A grant offered by the National Research, Development and Innovation Office (NRDI Office) also supports them in realising their ideas: outstanding student teams may receive financing of up to HUF 3 million. In addition, the work of the teams is also assisted by HSUP company partners in the framework of the related mentoring program. For further information, please, visit the program’s website.

The next opportunity for getting more acquainted with the program that was launched on the initiative of and is supported by NRDI Office will be the Budapest Startup Safari, an event with a history of over six years. Similarly to last year, the conference will be held through an innovative online platform between 21 and 23 April.
