The EIB has worked with Hungary since 1990. 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 offer better study and research facilities. A EUR 33.7 million EIB loan to ELI Network backed the construction of a state-of-the-art laser research facility in Szeged. This will support groundbreaking research in nanotechnology.
