Yosef Amrani, Ambassador of the State of Israel to Hungary met the leadership of the University of Szeged to participate negotiations on the possibilities of a future cooperation in terms of collaboration and joint research programmes.
Yosef Amrani promotes several fields of cooperation between Hungarian and Israeli institutions. According to the ambassador, Hungary is one of the most prominent allies of Israel. Promoting and strengthening research and development, innovation and economic relations are the basics of joint research projects. The ambassador added that automotive industry and the development of navigation, social and economics, water supply and agriculture-related projects could be considered as a starting point for a prospective cooperation.
Prof. Dr. László Rovó, Rector of the University of Szeged said that more than 100 Israeli students were studying at the SZTE, mainly continuing their medical studies. The University of Szeged is working closely with Ben Gurion University and Holon Institute of Technology. ’In order to meet the aims set by our internationalization policy we are continously mapping out new possibilities of cooperating with partner institutions to launch research projects. In addition, we are trying our best to establish relations that are not only academic but also valuable to Szeged and the region as well’ said Prof. Dr. László Rovó.
