Hanko: Hungary aims to be on Europe’s top-10 innovative list by 2030

Hungary aims be among Europe's ten most innovative countries by 2030, Balazs Hanko, the state secretary for innovation and higher education, said on Monday in Debrecen, in eastern Hungary, at the inauguration ceremony of a 12 billion forint national manufacturing, research and education centre and pharmaceutical faculty.

He said investments and collaborations such as the new centre at the University of Debrecen’s science park were part of “the Hungarian model” based on the cooperation of the university, the city and businesses, and these would help to strengthen the economy.

Hanko said many in Brussels were “attacking the Hungarian model”. “We are defending this model because it is successful, it pushes Hungary forward … and Hungarian universities are advancing faster in the international rankings.”
