Academia Europaea letter in support of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences

Sierd Cloetingh, President of Academia Europaea, and Ole H Petersen, Vice-President of Academia Europaea and director of the Cardiff Hub, have sent a letter to the Hungarian Minister of Innovation and Technology, Mr László Palkovics, in support of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA).

Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest
Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest

The proposed amendment of the Law on the MTA and the Law on the 2019 State Budget of Hungary threatens the scientific autonomy and the quality of scientific output from MTA. Academia Europaea has strong links with MTA and no less than 114 Hungarian scientists and scholars are Members of our Academy.
