 The goal of our annual Science Forum is to offer an opportunity for students to present the results of scientific research they are involved in, in order to facilitate interdisciplinal cooperation and global perspective. Therefore, every graduate student contributing to biomedical research is welcome to perform, regardless of their faculty.

The English session of the Frigyes Korányi Science Forum first took place in 2015. This initiative was supported by a central European research network, the Association for Regional Cooperation in the Fields of Health, Science and Technology (RECOOP HST Association).
Members of the jury of the conference sessions are RECOOP HST Association’s international experts.

Students are required to give a 5-minute oral presentation (with PPT) at the Plenary Session, followed by a Poster Discussion (1 hour) at the their posters. Required poster size: W90 x H120 cm!
