Palkovics inaugurates new developments at ZalaZone research centre
Palkovics told the event on the outskirts of Zalaegerszeg, in southwest Hungary, that cooperation between the industrial, academic and education sectors, as well as government and local authorities, has resulted in a “world-class environment for research institutes”.
Zalaegerszeg mayor Zoltan Balaicz said the “eco-system built on the outskirts of the city comprises industrial production, R and D, and a background of academic [knowledge] and services. Thanks to all that, Zalaegerszeg is in a position to weather hard times easier than others,” he said.
ZalaZone CEO Andras Hary noted that the main building of the research centre was inaugurated in 2019. Since then, a test track for autunomous vehicles, a Rheinmetall plant for army vehicles and other developments housing education and services were added, he said.
