The position of Western Balkan region and national higher education institutions within Europe and potential cooperation opportunities were discussed on 10-11 March 2015 in the Rector's Office of the University of Szeged.
The University of Szeged has a widespread network of relations throughout the world. Due to its extended foreign relations, the institution also serves as an international meeting point; as it is annually chosen by nearly 2,000 students from other countries.
The ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) Laser Research Centre, using ultrahigh intensity laser, is being built with international cooperation at three different East European locations, but will operate under a single management and use a common research strategy.
The University of Szeged is one of the leading higher education institutions in Hungary. The university is located in Szeged, the sunniest town of this Central European country, member of the European Union.
Our annual cultural festivals offer over 500 programmes on average at more than 100 different venues; 320 participants enter the talent-spotting competitions organised by the university. We have 27 registered amateur artistic groups, such as choirs, theatre groups and symphonic orchestras.
