We upgraded the Budapest airport and the country’s roads and railway networks. With our support, Budapest’s University of Sport Sciences and Physical Education and the University of Pécs now offer better study and research facilities. Our €33.7 million loan to the ELI Network backed the construction of a state-of-the-art laser research facility in Szeged. This will support ground-breaking research in nanotechnology.
