Project completed

Biodiversity assessment in the Carpathian region

01.04.2012 - 31.03.2017

Surveys on forest and endangered bats, insects and birds in the Natura 2000 areas in the Northern Medium Mountains are carried out and provide the basis for effective measures to protect them. Integrated in forest management and Natura 2000 management plans after project closure, the conservation measures will be taken by stakeholders such as forestry or farmers.

Project completed

Kazincbarcika: Job creation / development

01.01.2012 - 31.05.2017

This programme supports the set up respectively the expension of businesses and improves the image of the Kazincbarcika micro-region that suffers from high unemployment. A new Business and Incubation Park attracts investors respectively newly set-up companies which can get supported out of an application fund. In this way, new jobs are created and maintained in the long term.

Project completed

Scholarship Fund for disadvantaged and marginalised youth

01.04.2011 - 30.09.2015

The Scholarship Fund enables disadvantaged and marginalized children to obtain a good formal education. For this purpose, the Fund finances, e.g., projects that help the children in learning and in homework, that motivate them to study further, or that offer them leisure time opportunities (such as sport, culture).

A woman in the field

01.04.2011 - 31.10.2015

The Block Grant supports vulnerable persons and children, and works to preserve an in-habitable environment in the regions of North Hungary and the North Great Plain. The Fund therefore finances NGO projects e.g. in favour of children with special needs or of a more eco-friendly life-style.

Project completed

Flood Control Infosystem Upper-Tisza

01.01.2011 - 28.02.2013

Dike constructions in the catchment area of the Tisza river together with factors such as climate change or other human interventions (e.g. deforestation) lead to a deterioration of the  flood fore-cast quality. The project elaborates the basis for an improved flood protection which helps reducing damages in the flood-prone area along the river.

Project completed

Updating flood defence plans for the upper reaches of the Tisza

01.01.2011 - 31.03.2013

The project’s goal is to protect the population of the upper Tisza river by taking appropriate measures against floods. To achieve this, topographical and biomass data is acquired by aerial scanning before being transformed into a relief model of the embankments of the Tisza river. This model serves as a basis for effective measures in case of floods.

Project completed

Research on pain sensation, HU Academy of Science

15.10.2010 - 30.04.2016

The Project investigates in detail the signalling of endocannabinoids in the spinal cord, with the aim of better understanding their roles in chronic pain and with the potential to find more specific phar-macological interventions with less side effects.

Project completed

Radioactive Waste Disposal

01.10.2010 - 30.03.2016

The objectives of the project are to make specific contributions to the safety assessment of the future radioactive waste repositories through an understanding of relevant retention/retardation mechanisms and processes, and to provide the necessary models and databases. Investigation of the geochemistry of radioactive waste disposal systems. The goal of the project is the demonstration of long-term isolation technology in underground repository.


Project completed
