Hungary was the most successful country in the ”Teaming” research excellence programme, the most prestigious call of Horizon 2020 Widening programme. The two successful projects coordinated by the National Research, Development and Innovation Office consisting of excellent Hungarian and international partners have been awarded EUR 26 million (around HUF 8 billion).
I4.0 National Technological Platform: The Presidium has been set up in full, the Work Groups have been offiicially formed. The second plenary meeting of the Industry 4.0 National Technological Platform was held on the 11th October, 2016 at the Head Office of MTA SZTAKI.

It has been a tradition for the past decades that numerous members of our staff have been contributing successfully in various topics to the management and work committees of the most relevant international scientific organisations. Now two of our researchers have been awarded by a significant forum.

ERCIM offers fellowships for PhD holders from all over the world. The next round is open!

Deadline for applications: 30 September 2016.
Topics cover most disciplines in Computer Science, Information Technology, and Applied Mathematics.
Fellowships are of 12-month duration spent in one ERCIM member institute.
Detailed description of the programme and the application form is  here .

The Industry 4.0 National Technology Platform has been recently established under the leadership of the Institute for Computer Science and Control, Hungarian Academy of Sciences and with the participation of research institutions, education institutions and companies having premises in Hungary.

The most prestigious state award in the field of sciences was handed over by János Áde r, President of Hungary in the presence of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on 15 March 2016, in the Cupola Hall of the Parliament Building.

Started in January 2016, the  EXCELL project ( Actions for Excellence in Smart Cyber-Physical Systems applications through exploitation of Big Data in the context of Production Control and Logistics ) foresees the collaboration of researchers from four European countries (Hungary, Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium) in the field of Cyber-Physical Systems and Big Data applications serving production and logistics networks. The main activities of the proje
The new, significantly improved version of Occopus has been released. Occopus can be used by application developers and application controllers to manage virtual infrastructures at deployment time and at runtime as well as to create and provide complex virtual infrastructures to be built by one click even by novice cloud users.
Invited by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade , the Laboratory on Engineering and Management Intelligence of MTA SZTAKI participated as an exhibitor at Science Agora , Tokyo, Japan. This exhibition is an annual event dedicated to science education, with around 10.000 visitors each year. The motto of this year’s event was “ Let us build a society harmonized with science ”.
The General Assembly of acatech (Deutsche Akademie der Technikwissenschaften, National Academy of Science and Engineering) elected Prof. László Monostori , Director of SZTAKI to member of the Academy.
SZTAKI is happy to announce the first official release of Occopus  which is a framework that provides automatic features for configuring and orchestrating distributed applications (so called virtual infrastructures) on single or multi cloud systems. Occopus can be used by application developers and application controllers to manage virtual infrastructures at deployment time and at runtime as well as to create and provide complex virtual infrastructures to be built by one click even by novice cloud users.
