ELTE Innovation

ELTE is the flagship institution of Hungarian higher education, science, and university-based innovation: a national asset that is capable of continuous development while preserving the quality of knowledge that grows from generation to generation, and holds its own in international competition. ELTE is an extraordinarily complex institution, hence the outcomes of its scientific and innovation initiatives are also produced in a complex system. They arise from individual research programmes, research groups, development priorities of individual faculties, Centres of Excellence and Competence, National Laboratories, corporate collaboration, international cooperation, inter-institutional tenders, industry programmes and intra-institutional collaboration. 

In the menus above, we present outstanding examples of ELTE's innovation activities. If you scroll down, you will find the list of related organizational units and innovation news.

Faculty of Informatics Innovation Lab 

The Lab supports the development of business ideas of students and lecturers, as well as developing the entrepreneurial skills and knowledge of both. Participants can embark on their own startup projects or join projects initiated by other participants of the programme. In either case, they will gain practical experience that is crucial for their future careers - be it as researchers or entrepreneurs or as companies - in the keenest and most instructive environment possible: as (co-)founder of a business project involving their own contribution. The Innovation Lab does not support research and development as such, but focuses on innovation; that is, marketing, production, commercialization, and entrepreneurship development.
