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.

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.

SZTE Experience


AndiAndi Rahmat Saleh - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences - Ph.D. Studies

I’m a Ph.D. student from Indonesia and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship student. I first heard about the University of Szeged from the Tempus Foundation university list with excellent program descriptions, and it caught my eyes. My student life has been a pleasant one because of the beautiful environment, and TIK library facility. The teachers and staffs are accommodating, and my mentors and classmates also contributed to exploring the city with pleasant memories. The city is very affordable, and I live in a shared flat very close to the city center. In my free time, I engage in sporting activities or watch movies. My favorite spot is the Dugonics square, but my best attraction is the Tisza River. The University of Szeged is a beautiful experience for me, and I will recommend it to my friends. I am happy to be part of the University of Szeged.


JoseJose Eges - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics

I’m from Ecuador and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder in my second year. I chose University of Szeged because of its highly ranked status in Hungary. I like the generosity of the people and the fantastic university facilities. The student environment is very relaxing, and you learn a lot from the cultural diversity. The student mentors are helpful. Professors and members of faculty staff are very approachable to guide and support you with academic challenges. Life in Szeged is exciting, and my favorite spot is the bank of Tisza River. The landscape of the bridge across the river and the beachside perspective is a beauty. I do enjoy the good academic system, and friendly environment.
