More than 200 institutions will be participating in a celebration of Hungarian Innovation and research + Development on the weekend of 27-28th September.
Since 2006 Hungary has participated in the night of the researchers Europe wide event, it takes place each year with the support of the European Commission.
The goal of the event is to raise awareness of research and development career paths for young students in Hungary.
Several of the celebratory events taking place in Debrecen this year welcome English speakers. For the first event below, speaking in any language is not a pre-requisite to understanding, instead of relying on vision alone.
