Based on the most important rankings, Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) is Hungary’s leading higher education institution in terms of humanities, psychology, and living and non-living natural sciences.
One of ELTE’s key strengths is its high scientific standard. Its students perform well in areas such as English language and literature, physics and astronomy, mathematics, linguistics, and archeology. Meanwhile, its law students regularly win international case law competitions, outperforming the world’s leading universities.
Many researchers from ELTE have also successfully applied for funding under the ERC and Horizon 2020 programs. Most recently, paving the way for educational and scientific cooperation, they have set up the CHARM-EU alliance under the European Universities Initiative in partnership with the University of Barcelona, Trinity College Dublin, the University of Utrecht and the University of Montpellier.
Two years ago, four significant research projects were launched via funding of HUF 2 billion. Research has been wide-ranging: diagnostic and therapeutic developments, materials science, astro and particle physics and problem-solving systems.
Last year, three more research groups were launched to work on synthetic chemistry and biochemistry, high-reliability IT solutions, and values of our European past to help pursue the survival and growth of the family and the nation.
The state is supporting these seven research programs with a total of HUF 3.7 billion.
