We can send students to quality partners inside and outside Europe, from Singapore to the United States or South America, said Zoltán Oszkár Szántó, Vice-Rector for Research, in an interview with Magyar Nemzet. He stressed that the existing resources are sufficient to meet all needs in the next semester: in addition to students, mobility is also available in the teaching, research and service sectors in the Pannonia programme.

Our university was tested by the exclusion from the Horizon Europe and Erasmus programmes, but the model-shifting universities have gained access to a number of new and favourable opportunities, such as the Pannónia and Hu-rizont programmes,

– said Zoltán Oszkár Szántó, Vice-Rector for Research and Dean of the Corvinus Institute for Advanced Studies (CIAS). The Vice-Rector continued that although CIAS as a research institution is not directly affected by the Erasmus+ sanction, the researchers are also committed to the international education of students and their participation in exchange programmes. 

Zoltán Szántó also explained that the situation of the university has improved a lot since the change of model: our budget has increased considerably, our management has stabilised and the average salary of our staff has doubled. He also pointed out that Corvinus’ research performance in internationally ranked publications has tripled since 2019, and that CIAS has world-class results with the help of its renowned international researchers.
