In this event, which has the collaboration of the Széchenyi University of Györ and the Central Bank of Hungary, will be taught about 20 conferences in the usual format of the Royal Academy, limited to 15 minutes and with an informative character, and teachers will also participate Hungarian professors and academicians.
A series of cultural activities will be organized by the Hungarian authorities, such as visits to the Parliament, the Budapest Opera and a river cruise on the Danube. The scientific sessions will conclude with a gala dinner hosted by the minister of Innovation and Technology. The details of this congress will be offered in the coming days.
