Head of State Catalin Novak greeted the participants in a message. As he wrote, humanity would be much poorer without the discoveries of the age by Albert Szent-Gyorgi, Janus Neumann, Denis Gabor, or Katalin Cariko. In Catalin Novak’s letter, she drew attention to the fact that the world of science and its tools are a stumbling block for decision-makers, and for this reason they rely on researchers. “There is a great need for their intellectual reserves,” the head of state said in his message.
The opening and congratulatory speech was followed by the awarding of prizes that were traditionally awarded on the occasion of the Hungarian Science Festival. The awards were presented by the President, Secretary-General and Deputy Secretary-General of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
