The COVID-19 epidemic has placed the importance of biotechnology in the spotlight: there is a fierce competitive race worldwide for the development of drugs and vaccines against the coronavirus. We feel justified in asking how does Hungary stand in the global competition for biotechnology research and development? What characterizes this activity in Hungary? Papers about this topic summarize the areas of R&D activities of biotechnology and discuss the economic weight and development trends of this sub-sector by making comparisons between the USA and Europe.
The OTKA FK 128232 research project examines the effects of international trade on climate change and environmental pollution, with special emphasis on agro-food trade and the influential role of agricultural activities.

The research results may provide a basis for the development of future regional climate strategies and adaptation plans in agriculture and food trade at the national, European Union and international levels. The four-year research project takes place between 1 December 2018 and 30 November 2022.
