In the opening ceremony, it was highlighted that the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme has become one of the flagships of the internationalization of Hungarian higher education over the years. Since the available CEEPUS quota has tripled for the 2023/2024 academic year, we will have more partnerships with national participation than ever before, and Hungary can host a record number of mobility participants. Our students and academics will have the opportunity to participate in study and professional mobilities, specialized courses and study trips in the higher education institutions of the 16 partner countries. 50 Hungarian higher education institutions participate in the Erasmus+ programme. As for model-changing universities, 2023 contracts have not been signed yet but with 2022 contracts, mobility is ensured in both the autumn and spring semesters, the necessary resources are available.

The meeting offered us a great opportunity to share our experiences, to review the actualities and to discuss the challenges ahead. The 4-person delegation representing the University of Sopron was able to participate in all presentations and round table discussions and returned home with a lot of information and ideas.
