Promoting Hungarian R&D

05.02.2004

In order to facilitate the participation of the region's experts and institutions in the 6th EU RTD Framework Programme (FP6) projects, the Hungarian Science and Technology Foundation (HSTF) was again appointed to work as the liaison office for the Central Hungary Region and Budapest. The foundation became co-ordinator or partner in 13 FP6 projects that were accepted for contract negotiation by the EU in different thematic priorities, but mostly in the area of life sciences. The office is the coordinator of a support action in the area of food quality and safety with 26 partners.
Apart from serving as the liaison office in FP5 for the areas “Environment” and “Quality of Life” for the Central Hungary region HSTF participated in seven projects, e.g. it was a partner in two “Economic and Technological Intelligence (ETI)” projects in “Quality of Life”: “Partners for Life - The European life sciences network for SMEs” and “Fellows for Industry - a new European initiative for cooperation of academia and industry”.
Project Management for EU FP6
Although the foundation is involved more in the food and environment projects of biotechnology, it has widescale relationship in every field of science. HSTF provides assistance in establishing contacts between Hungarian and foreign researchers and research institutes. The office has an advisory service and provides assistance in proposal preparation and project management for the EU framework programmes and other EU and national possibilities.
Established by the Hungarian Minister for Foreign Affairs in 1994, the HSTF is a non-profit public foundation. Its mission is to develop the international relations of the Hungarian R&D community, to participate in Hungary's EU integration efforts by promoting activities in the field of science and technology and to facilitate the access of interested Hungarian parties to European Union R&D funding. The office has developed many contacts with scientists, research institutions, universities, enterprises, multiplier organisations and governmental agencies in Hungary, e.g. the Hungarian National Contact Points, and abroad as well.
