APPEC is pleased to announce that at the latest General Assembly meeting held on May 17 2018 Hungary formally joined APPEC.
The Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) supports multi-messenger astrophysics focusing on gravitational wave research, exploring the characteristics of the high-energy Universe, as well as cosmology and the study of the properties of dark matter and dark energy. Furthermore, MTA will contribute in APPEC to R&D activities on Common Projects (e.g. Einstein Telescope) and to the development of theoretical bases, computing and application of deep-underground laboratories, as well as to support education, outreach and industrial connections.
MTA is a public body functioning as a self-regulatory legal entity which carries out a national civic duty by practicing, supporting, overseeing and representing Hungarian science and can operate as consultant of the government
