Addressing an event marking the research centre’s completion, Navracsics said it was the traditions, history and “heroes” of higher education, science and research in Szeged that had allowed the city to become one of Europe’s and the world’s research hubs.
The laser centre was made possible by the financial contributions of EU taxpayers, the minister said.
EU Affairs Minister János Bóka said the research being carried out in the ELI-ALPS centre was “unparalleled in Europe and possible worldwide”.
Noting that preparations for the establishment of the centre began in 2008, he minister said he wanted to see similar projects realised in other Hungarian knowledge centres as well.
