ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) Laser Research Centre

The Extreme Light Infrastructure Attosecond Light Pulse Source (ELI-ALPS) Laser Research Centre is one of the pillars of this infrastructure was built in Szeged and is one of the largest scientific investments in Europe, with support from the European Union amounting to over 70 billion HUF.

The purpose of ELI-ALPS is to establish a unique, laser-based European user research facility where ultrashort laser pulses and light sources will be accessible for international researchers. ELI-ALPS’ Lasers will able to generate the shortest and greatest number of laser pulses per second so far. This allows researchers to examine elementary intramolecular physical processes and also provides unparalleled infrastructure to carry out basic and applied research on an ultrafast timescale for outstanding research results in biology, medicine and material sciences. There is a cooperation agreement between ELI-ALPS and the University resulting in the collaboration in the organisation of research projects and training programmes. The entire complex was opened in May 2017 and the facility will become fully operational in 2019.

A scientific industrial park is planned in a 80-hectare area surround the ELI-ALPS facility and is welcoming all start-up and successful businesses that could utilize the laser research centre and are drawn to Szeged by the inspirational atmosphere of the city. The Hungarian Molecular Medicine Centre of Excellence will also operate in the ELI Science Park and will be established as a large scientific investment of the EU. An automotive industry competence centre may also be formed in conjunction with the University of Kecskemét. The first facilities were opened in 2019.

I am a PhD student and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder from the Philippines. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Science and I happen to be in my 3rd year of studies. I chose University of Szeged because its one of the top ranked research university in Hungary known for its good reputation in the fields of health and natural sciences. Coming from the Philippines with a warm climate, I had huge preference of Szeged for my studies, the city having the most rays of sunshine and considered to be the warmest place in Hungary. I would advise all the prospective students to join University of Szeged’s diverse and vibrant community! Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone, try to find and establish your niche in a new place like what I did. I didn’t regret coming to Szeged as it continuously provides me an enabling learning environment for various reasons, has affordable cost of living, very safe and calm university town, organized transport system, beautiful and clean surroundings with the very sightly Tisza River which adds to its appeal, and also holds many festivals throughout the year. After graduation, I am planning to go back to my home institution and continue my teaching duties at the University of the Philippines Los Baños

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.
