Semmelweis University Receives First Hungarian Ventilators
The first ten Hungarian-developed ventilators have been delivered to Semmelweis University, the innovation and technology ministry said on Thursday.

The ventilators, which were developed in a joint project by the university and several investors, will ensure personalised support for patients suffering from breathing difficulties, the ministry’s statement said.

The project was a recipient of the government’s research and development funding, set up last year with a 3 billion forint (EUR 8.2m) framework to support projects aiding protection efforts against the coronavirus pandemic.

The ministry has supported some 30 such projects since last spring, the statement said.
