The purpose of this event, which is being held for the fourth time and is related to the Hungarian Science Festival, is to promote the development of research partnerships.
The basis of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology’s courses is world-class research work: year after year, lecturers achieve significant results through their scientific research, which are integrated into the teaching materials, and the curriculum is constantly updated. At Thursday’s symposium.
– We started the Science Day event at TTK four years ago on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the college, with the aim of creating a tradition. Scientific research is very important in our school, and all our colleagues are expected not only to teach, but also to develop their science, and we try to contribute to the development of our field of science with our results – emphasized at the event Ferenc KuhnDean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology, who can be rightly proud of the institution’s scientific performance, which is supported by the numbers.
– In the Hungarian Academy of Sciences tender, five of our organizational units, four institutes and one department won the honorary title of Outstanding Research Site of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Currently, the Hungarian Research Network includes ten distinct TTK research groups, and we also have two groups from Momentum and two groups from Edge Research. In total, six of our employees have won the Lendület project so far – these are unique numbers. In the latest subject ranking of Natural Sciences within the University Circular Ranking, our university ranked 89th, and the faculty’s researchers have contributed significantly to the result. The background of research work is quality infrastructure, we have made great progress in this area as well, and two of our laboratories are in the list of the top 50 research infrastructure in Hungary – detailed by Ferenc Kühn.
The commander emphasized: The event is a kind of military review of research work and results, which always has a theme. Last year, the TTK Excellence Research Groups presented themselves, and this year they focused on collaboration. Many projects are being implemented in partnership with other university colleges, and a comprehensive picture of them has been given. Their unstated intention is to stimulate greater cooperation.

Regarding the opening lecture topics, they are usually related to the events going on around us, and this time it was no different, as there have been a surprising number of earthquakes in Hungary recently. Professor Harangi spoke about the action of volcanoes and the formation of earthquakes.
