German-Hungarian Academic Forum
The Dénes Gábor Association held its founding ceremony on 16th February, in Berlin.
The main goal of the Association, named after the Nobel Prize winner Hungarian researcher, is to maintain closer relationship between the two countries on the scientific and cultural fields and to enhance cooperation between Germany-based researchers – of Hungarian background and Hungarian academics. Besides, the Association strives to create a cultural forum for the development of German-Hungarian research relations, and to strengthen civic relations also, via the cooperation in the scientific fields of interests. The Association lists a Professor from the University of Debrecen as a member.
József Pálinkás, President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, welcomed the foundation of the Association and offered his support in the future.
“The Gábor Dénes Association for Scientific Cooperation can be a founding pillar in further developing the information flow between the two countries”, said Domokos Szász, Vice-President of the Academy, at the opening ceremony of the Association.
The University of Debrecen also has a network of multilateral ties with Germany. A good example is the cooperation agreement signed with the University of Münster last November which initially covered the field of bioethics and was extended to other fields as well. The two institutions have joined the Association by sharing a common platform; Professor Michael Quante, representing the University of Münster, and Professor Erzsébet Rózsa, Philosophy Department, representing the University of Debrecen.
“The recent action plan of the Association mostly aims at studies in natural sciences and medicine as main target fields. Extending the scope of cooperation would most likely open the possibilities for the field of arts and humanities as well”, said Professor Erzsébet Rózsa. The Ambassador for the University also hinted at the scholarship and research opportunities of PhD students and young researchers.
