Budapest, Hungary


Location


Hungary has gone through a deep-rooted transformation during the past 20 years, and today it is a free and democratic country with a smoothly working market economy. The country has enjoyed steady GDP growth, a bullish stock market, and a decreasing inflation rate. Hungary became a full member of the European Union on May 1, 2004, and took the rotating EU presidency in 2011. 

The country is a link between Eastern and Western Europe. Currently, new investment is revitalizing Hungary and grand old Budapest is being restored with breathtaking Old World grandeur and thriving cultural life. It is the country's cultural, political, intellectual, and commercial heart, teeming with cafés, restaurants, and markets.

Situated on both banks of the Danube River, the city unites the colorful hills of Buda and the wide boulevards of Pest. Budapest is simultaneously peaceful and bustling—it treasures the old and embraces the new. With all of its changes, it's an exciting place to visit.
 

Projects


Computer Science MQPs will take place at the Computer and Automation Research Institute in Budapest (MTA SZTAKI), http://www.sztaki.hu , Hungary’s national research center for information technology, computer science, and related fields. In addition to pursuing basic and applied research, system design and integration, consulting, and software development are among activities of the Institute. A special emphasis is placed on education-related activities; the center has close affiliations with several Hungarian and European universities, including the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and the Eötvös Loránd University.
