Established in 1825, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) is a national public institution charged with the duty of pursuing, supporting and representing science. MTA is a public body functioning as a self-regulatory legal entity, which has some 17,000 members: on the one hand, academicians – that is members of the Academy – and on the other hand, persons holding a scientific title obtained or recognized in Hungary. MTA has 11 scientific sections, which altogether cover the entire spectrum of scientific activities. Each section represents one branch or several closely related branches of science. MTA maintains a research network dedicated to basic research, which, again covering practically the whole range of science, is considered a fundamental pillar of Hungary’s scientific life. This network is made up of 10 research centres – incorporating a total of 39 research institutes – and 5 independent research institutes. These research institutions cooperate with Hungarian universities through maintaining some 200 research groups. Besides, MTA manages its own system of grants and fellowships designed to support researchers’ scientific activities.
