3 Preface József Pálinkás, President of HAS On behalf of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS) and the five consortium-member universities and the whole scientific community, it is my great privilege to welcome SYLFF which I consider one of the most humane initiatives in science. Allow me to quote SYLFF s vision, which was Mr. Sasakawa s creed: The world is one family and all mankind are brothers and sisters. Allow me to continue with a citation from one of our best-known Hungarian poets from the 19th century, Mihály Vörösmarty:...What, in this world, is our task? To struggle, and to nourish the needs of the spirit (Thoughts in the Library). 1 In order to serve these goals, the Agreement on The Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund between HAS and the Japan Shipbuilding Industry Foundation was signed on November 9th 1989 by the then President of our Academy, Iván T. Berend, and the Chairman of the Japan Shipbuilding Industry Foundation, Ryoichi Sasakawa. Twenty years have passed. I am the 5th President since the Agreement was signed. Let me mention with gratitude my predecessors: Iván T. Berend, Domokos Kosáry, Ferenc Glatz and E. Sylvester Vizi, past presidents of HAS. The objective of the program is to support the education of outstanding postgraduate students and young researchers in the fields of the humanities and social sciences who exhibit a high potential for future leadership. Hungary was the 16th in the series of SYLFF endowments already 71 institutions are members of the SYLFF network in 45 countries of the world; our SYLFF Steering Committee in these two decades has been able to support 148 young Hungarian students and researchers. 1 In Quest of the Miracle Stag: The Poetry of Hungary, edited by Adam Makkai,

4 In Hungary the SYLFF program is conducted at the national level: the Academy runs the program together with five universities. I consider this highly important, because it symbolizes the unity of research and education. Corvinus University of Budapest, Eötvös Loránd University, University of Debrecen, University of Pécs and University of Szeged together constitute a massive and valuable scientific community. Our Academy considers it highly important to involve young researchers in decisionmaking: we are in the process of establishing an advisory committee from among our best young colleagues. I am convinced that their scientific interest and their research projects may represent extremely promising, brand-new territories in our age it is in our best interest to listen to them! Hungary is a small country according to the number of her population, but according to the number of famous Hungarian scientists and Nobel laureates, we are not so small. Perhaps this is why we have the pleasure in partnership with UNESCO and ICSU to host the World Science Forum Budapest: a world conference series on science, knowledge and society in order to promote the quality of dialogue concerning the new roles and challenges of scientific knowledge within today s global society. The first World Science Forum was organized in Budapest on November 8 10, The Forum at that time focused on Knowledge and Society. The second World Science Forum Budapest was held on November 10 12, 2005 and it focused on Knowledge, Ethics and Responsibility. The third World Science Forum Budapest was held on November 8 10, The principal theme of it was Investing in Knowledge: Investing in the Future. This year we will organize the fourth forum on November 5 7, it will focus on Knowledge and Future. Our world is ill: it is suffering from different illnesses; only science and responsibility hand in hand are able to cure it, and only science together with responsibility can find a way out of the current crises. It is always the duty of intellectuals to stand up in defence of the most authentic road to development a worldwide network of talented young fellows working together for world-peace and harmony is one of the brightest ideas I have ever heard of. We are thankful to the Foundation. We congratulate you on the idea to create this worldwide SYLFF network. Thank you for the possibility of being one of the members of this SYLFF family. We have done, and I promise, we will continue to do our best to serve the SYLFF goals they deeply coincide with our efforts, with the efforts of HAS, of the whole Hungarian scientific community. Responsibility is of paramount importance in science: investing in knowledge is investing in our future, knowledge and future go hand in hand, and it is our generation s task to educate young people and call their attention to a responsible way of living. We must educate the young for peace and harmony in this crisis-ridden but nevertheless beautiful world. 4

5 Ryoichi Sasakawa Born to a family of Shouya 1, Ryoichi Sasakawa ( ), the founder of The Nippon Foundation, acquired a strong sense of public service from his parents who raised him in an extremely strict and disciplined manner, which sometimes seemed unbearable to him. According to one of his biographies, one day as Ryoichi s father was socializing with neighbors by a stove on a cold winter day, young Ryoichi came by to warm himself. His father said to him, Adults are sons of fire, but children are sons of wind, and then ordered his mother to disrobe Ryoichi, pour cold water over him and keep him standing outside for hours. Later, Ryoichi came to understand that there was good reason for their strictness. According to this biography 2, Ryoichi s father said to him, You may be cursing us but you are not our son in one sense. You were born to a Shouya family and thus must serve the public. Everyone says that you are a gift from heaven who will do the job of cleaning the world which is full of messiness. Therefore, you are not our son and must be raised strictly even though you may hate us. Over the years, Ryoichi became grateful to his parents for their discipline which made him understand important values in life, including justice and courtesy, the very bases of his life and work. In his 20 s, Ryoichi acquired tremendous wealth by investing in the stock market and financing businesses. His choice of stocks and potential businesses were perceived as reckless to everyone but himself. It became clear that he was gifted business-wise because his choices were inevitably successful. In his late-20 s he ran for a seat in the village senate and was elected. In April 1942, at the age of 46, he was elected to the House of Representatives of Japan s parliament and served until December After World War II, he was imprisoned as a suspected war criminal because of his political activities. However, he was not indicted or tried and was released 1 Shouya is the term used in the Edo Period to refer to families designated by district rulers to serve as the heads of village administrative units whose responsibilities included the collection of taxes. 2 Excerpted and translated into English from Sassoutaru Jinsei (A Dashing Life) by Eiichi Kamiyama,

6 from prison after three years. During his imprisonment, Ryoichi found new meaning in his life. It was then he made up his mind to dedicate his life to the cause of saving humanity from the tragedy of war for all time by contributing all of his efforts to world peace. This goal, he was firmly convinced, could not be achieved through the abolition of arms alone. Rather, he believed, world peace could only be realized when all humankind can live free from need, illness and injustice. Therefore, he devoted the remainder of his long life to a range of activities from promoting peace and security to improving the environment, fostering culture and educating young people. Ryoichi established the Japan Shipbuilding Industry Foundation in October 1962 as a private, non-profit organization; the Foundation was later known as The Sasakawa Foundation and since 1995 as The Nippon Foundation. The operations of the Foundation are funded by 3.3% of revenues derived from motorboat racing, which is legally conducted by local governments in Japan. The Foundation s initial activities were directed at the postwar restoration of Japan s shipbuilding industry but gradually expanded on the basis of Ryoichi s creed, The world is one family; all humankind are brothers and sisters. This creed has been translated into programs and activities that have contributed to the well-being of all humankind. Ryoichi Sasakawa lived a long life and accomplished a great deal. Hungary will be grateful to the great philanthropist forever. He will be remembered by generations as an eminent world-citizen in the service of mankind. 6

7 Yohei Sasakawa Yohei Sasakawa is Chairman of The Nippon Foundation, a private, non-profit foundation established in 1962 for the purpose of carrying out philanthropic activities, using revenue from motorboat racing. Sasakawa joined the Foundation as a trustee in 1981, served as president from 1989 and became chairman on 1 July The Foundation s overall objectives include assistance for humanitarian activities, both at home and abroad, and global maritime development. Its philanthropic ideals embrace social development and self-sufficiency, and it pursues these principles by working to improve public health and education, alleviate poverty, eliminate hunger and help the disabled. In the field of public health, The Nippon Foundation has, for over 40 years, been closely involved with the global campaign to eliminate leprosy, working in close co-operation with the World Health Organisation, governments, international organisations and NGOs. One prime example of this work is the funding, between 1995 and 1999, of free, multi-drug therapy (MDT) for every leprosy-affected person in the world. Sixteen million people have been cured of the disease since MDT first became available in the 1980s. Sasakawa has described the elimination of leprosy (the oldest disease known to humankind) as his life s work, and spends one third of every year visiting endemic countries. He has served as WHO Goodwill Ambassador for Leprosy Elimination since As Goodwill Ambassador, he has initiated a campaign to end discrimination and other human rights violations faced by tens of millions of leprosy-affected people around the world. He has repeatedly approached the United Nations Sub Commission on the Protection and Promotion of Human Rights, obtaining unanimous approval for a resolution to urge governments to end basic human rights violations. In recognition of the success of this work, Sasakawa was subsequently appointed as the Japanese Government Goodwill Ambassador for the Human Rights of People Affected by Leprosy. In response to his appeal, the Japanese government submitted a draft resolution for elimination of discrimination against persons affected by leprosy and their family members, to the newly formed UN Human Rights Council. The resolution was co-sponsored by 59 countries and unanimously adopted by the member states of the Human Rights Council on June 18,

8 In January 2006, he launched a global appeal, supported by world leaders, to raise international awareness of the problem. One year later, he followed it with a second global appeal, this time by leprosy-affected people themselves. The third global appeal, held at the Royal Society of Medicine in London in January this year, enlisted the support of leading human rights and disability NGOs and campaigning organisations. Also in 2006, he established the Sasakawa-India Leprosy Foundation. The new foundation assists the economic independence and social rehabilitation of leprosy-affected people in India home to the world s largest population of people affected by leprosy. Sasakawa s personal involvement in this work has earned him international recognition, including the WHO Health for All Gold Medal, the International Leprosy Union s Millennium Gandhi Award, the Yomiuri International Cooperation Prize and the International Gandhi Award. Leadership is another key area for the Foundation, which has led to the establishment of the Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund. This targets future generations of leaders in the fields of social sciences and the humanities through a grant-in-aid programme which has provided milliondollar endowments to 68 universities and consortia in 44 countries. Through this programme, as many as 10,000 promising students have pursued graduate studies. A further educational project is The Nippon Foundation Fellowships for Asian Public Intellectuals, which brings together academics, researchers, media professionals, artists, creative writers, NGO activists, social workers and public servants. They conduct research and implement projects, while working together to tackle common regional issues. Since its inception in 2000, some 240 fellows have been chosen from the region. Yohei Sasakawa has been awarded numerous honours by many countries including Japan, Cambodia, Madagascar, the Czech Republic, France, Jordan, China, Belarus, Ukraine and the Russian Federation. He has received honorary degrees from fourteen universities, including seven Chinese universities. 8

9 SYLFF in Hungary Mariann Tarnóczy, Secretary to HAS-SYLFF It was almost 20 years ago, on November 9th 1989, that the chairman of the Japan Shipbuilding Industry Foundation and the President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences signed an Agreement to establish The Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund in Hungary, at the time the 16th of such funds around the world. There are now 71 altogether. The Fund has been working in Hungary since On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the SYLFF Program 20 is the age of attaining full adulthood in Japan (thus by now we have really grown up!) this booklet is being published on the activities of the Young Leaders Fellowship Fund in Hungary; within the framework and under the guidance of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. On this occasion we commemorate Mr. Ryoichi Sasakawa, departed Chairman of the Foundation, with gratitude, thanks and appreciation. Hungary is grateful to him forever. During these years the Steering Committee has awarded 148 fellowships in many different fields of the social sciences and humanities, as well as travel grants to various and often distant parts of the world. In the following pages our readers will find detailed information on our activities, on the members of the SYLFF-consortia, our five universities and the research units of the Academy, on the regulations of SYLFF in Hungary and on the scholarships and travel grants awarded till now. Finally, let me add a personal remark: I feel extremely fortunate to be able to work for SYLFF. As luck would have it, I have been engaged with SYLFF here in Hungary since the very beginning. It is great to be a part of a worldwide network. It is very rewarding to work together with colleagues all over the world. And it is very inspiring to assist talented young scholars to build promising careers. I strongly believe that our Hungarian fellows, together with SYLFF awardees all over the world, will be able to work effectively for world peace and harmony. In the present age this is something that we badly need. 9

10 The operation of HAS SYLFF The purpose of the Foundation, established on the basis of the Agreement between the Japan Shipbuilding Industry Foundation and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, is to support multidisciplinary studies in the field of social sciences and the humanities in the interest of the progress of Hungarian economy and culture. The objective of the program is to offer the following opportunities to outstanding, young, post-graduate students under 35 years of age in the social sciences and humanities, with high potential for future leadership in Hungary in science, international affairs and in public life, as well as in private endeavor: 1) maximum of three year post-graduate education and research programs as well as 2) opportunity to take part in conferences, courses etc. abroad, related to their research. Scholarship can be obtained by competition in line with the criteria and conditions laid down in the competition announcement. Applications that do not satisfy these conditions will not be considered by the Steering Committee and will be returned to the applicant. Applicatons will be evaluated by independent experts. The Steering Committee on the basis of expert opinions decides by simple majority vote on granting scholarships. Applicants will be informed about these results in writing. In case an applicant wins a competition, he/she shall sign a contract with the Foundation in which his/her rights and duties are laid down. 10

11 Scholarships The Steering Committee decides on scholarship applications once a year, in its session in December. If the scholarship winner receives any grant other than this scholarship during the scholarship period, he/she should inform the Secretariat of the Foundation. Scholarship winners shall compile annual reports on their research, in which they report on their progress according to their research plan submitted to the Foundation. The tutors shall evaluate the scholarship winners activities in writing once a year. These reports and other detailed information on the scholarship winners activities are available at the Secretariat. If the scholarship holder does not act in line with the terms and conditions laid down in the contract, his/her scholarship will be terminated. Travel grants The applicant must be a present or past SYLFF fellow. It is possible to apply for full support of the expenses incurred in case of short-term residence abroad, or for partial support of the expenses incurred in case of long-term residence abroad. The applicant is required to submit a short report focusing on his/ her participation at the conference, course, etc. to the Secretariat of the Foundation. The Steering Committee in its decisions observes the Agreement between the SYLFF and the HAS and it informs the former about its decisions. One copy of any publication, published thanks to the support of the Foundation, shall be submitted to the Secretariat of the Fund. Our grantees are required to acknowledge SYLFF support in all of their scholarly publications. 11

12 SYLFF Consortia in Hungary Cooperation of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and five universities In Hungary research institutes and universities are working together for the success of the SYLFF Program: the SYLFF Program is conducted at the national level and administered by the Hungarian Academy of the Sciences. Similar systems are working in New Zealand, where 8 universities are the members of the consortia, administered by one of the universities (Massey University), and in Oregon/USA, where the Oregon University System comprises 7 member universities. Young researchers under the age of 35 employed by the research units of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and students from the following five universities are eligible to apply for fellowships: Corvinus University of Budapest, Eötvös Loránd University, University of Debrecen, University of Pécs and University of Szeged. HAS also subsidises research groups at universities in the fields of natural and social sciences. Currently, there are 24 research groups in the field of social sciences and humanities, and 19 of these belong to the five universities in our consortia. 12

13 The Hungarian Academy of Sciences Brief overview During the last decade of the 18th and the first decade of the 19th century, various plans were conceived for the establishment of an academy to develope and propagate the Hungarian language, and to promote the development of science, but funds for establishing such a society were not available. This question was often raised until, at the November 3, , district session of the Diet in Bratislava (at that time the seat of the Hungarian Parliament), the provincial delegates started a debate on the matter of a Hungarian Learned Society, criticizing the magnates for not making sacrifices for a national cause. It was there that Count István Széchenyi offered one year s income from his estate for the purposes of a learned society. According to Act XL of 1994, the Academy is a scholarly public body founded on the principle of self-government, whose main task is the study of science, the publicizing of scientific achievements, and the aid and promotion of research. Its members are known as the academicians. HAS s membership is comprised of full, corresponding, external, and honorary members. Only citizens of the Hungarian Republic can be elected to become corresponding and full members of HAS. Doctors of HAS, or persons holding an equivalent degree as stipulated by Article 28 of the Academy Law of 1994, persons moreover who pursue their field of science on a particularly high and 1 The day on which the Hungarian Academy of Sciences was founded, which from November 3rd 1997 was the day on which national achievements in science were celebrated, and which day has been officially known as the Hungarian Festival of Science since The principal goal of programs organized through the collaboration of the Academy, various departments and civil bodies, is to make the results of research and innovation known to a wider public. 13

14 creative level recognised by their field of science, can be elected to become corresponding members. The Council of Doctors may confer the title Doctor of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Corresponding members can be elected to become full members only if they have produced some significant scientific achievements since they became corresponding members. Citizens of foreign countries can be elected to become external or honorary members of HAS. Scholars or scientists living in a foreign country, holding a foreign citizenship, yet professing themselves to be Hungarians, can be elected to become external members if they pursue their field of science at a particularly high and creative level recognised by their field of science, and if they keep in close touch with Hungarian scientific life. Scholars or scientists active in a foreign country can be elected to become honorary members of HAS if they pursue their field of science at an internationally recognised level, and whose achievement is worthy of the special esteem of Hungarian scientific life. External and honorary members are elected by their colleagues who are full or corresponding members of HAS. The number of full HAS members is standing now at 267 with an additional 77 corresponding members. Doctors of the Academy number approx at the present time. The number of Hungarian academicians under the age of 70 years cannot exceed 200; the absolute limit of the number of academicians is 365. The Academy, as a public body, is composed of academicians and other representatives of the sciences with an academic degree, who work to solve the tasks of Hungarian science, express their intention to become members of the public body and accept the duties it involves. They exercise their rights through their representatives. The general assembly is the supreme organ of this public body, which is composed of academicians and delegates (their number is 200) representing the non-academician members of the public body. The delegates are elected by secret ballot. The general assembly frames its own by-laws, determines its order of procedure and budget, elects its officers (president, vice- 14

15 presidents, secretary-general, vice-secretary-general), the committees of the general assembly, and the elected members of the presidium. As the by-laws stipulate, the Academy has eleven sections: I. Linguistics and Literary Studies Section, II. Philosophy and Historical Studies Section, III. Mathematical Sciences Section, IV. Agricultural Sciences Section, V. Medical Sciences Section, VI. Engineering Sciences Section, VII. Chemical Sciences Section, VIII. Biological Sciences Section, IX. Economics and Law Section, X. Earth Sciences Section, XI. Physical Sciences Section. The sections operate committees corresponding to branches of scholarship and special fields of research. The Academy maintains research institutes and other institutions (libraries, archives, information systems, etc.) assisting their work, and extends aid to university research centers. The operation of research institutes is directed by the Council of Academic Research Centers with the assistance of three advisory boards. The operation of the Academy is financed by the budget, income derived from its assets, and by foundations and donations. Grants and R & D contractincomes further increase the Academy s financial resources. Amid budget restrictions and Hungary s 2004 accession to the European Union (1 May, 2004), HAS has managed to maintain its high profile in the country s research and higher education structure. HAS is currently at the forefront of the Hungarian research community s struggle to fulfil the European Union s Lisbon resolution, according to which each member-state should spend at least 3 per cent of its GDP on R & D by The General Assembly in May 2009 adjourned in the hope that even amid the gruelling conditions of an economic and financial world crisis, the Academy s activities can be maintained and even elevated to a more efficient level in the period leading up to its next, 180th General Assembly in May

16 HAS s Research Institutes Social Sciences and Humanities HAS Research Institute for Art History The Institute is a national research centre, its principal task being research into the history, monuments and documents of Hungarian art and art in Hungary from the earliest times to the present day, and also the publication of research materials in this field. In time and space the range of the Institute s activities partly overlap with the scope of the collections of Hungarian museums and the objects under the protection of Hungarian building conservation, but also partly exceed it by focusing on the whole of historical Hungary and the activities of Hungarian artists. Research into art-historiography, and also methodological and theoretical investigations constitute an integral part of the Institute s activities. HAS Institute of Economics The Institute of Economics is committed to international standards of fundamental and applied research in economics. It has focused increasingly on the analysis of the modern market economy and the transformation of the Hungarian economy. Findings of the research programs of the Institute are made available to and are regularly used by policy-making bodies and universities. The Institute puts emphasis on promoting academic cooperation with other Hungarian and European research centres. It also considers it a priority to develop stronger links with university departments and to take part in the education of the new generation of researchers. 16

17 HAS Research Institute for Ethnic and National Minorities The primary objective of the Institute is to carry out complex and interdisciplinary studies on the situation of the Hungarian and Roma minorities in the Central and Eastern European region, as well as the non-hungarian minorities in Hungary, involving the fields of contemporary history, sociology, anthropology, sociolinguistics, law and political science. The Institute pursues basic research in the topics of changing languages and identities, models of minority self-government, minority institutions, interethnic relations and conflicts, as well as migration processes. At the same time, the Institute carries out applied research in support of the educational, cultural, linguistic, regional and local programmes of development concerning minority community building.

HAS Institute of Political Science The Institute of Political Science of the HAS conducts theoretical, empirical and comparative research primarily in the field of political science, and to a considerable extent in the field of related social sciences as well. Its activity is characterised by a marked inter- and multi-disciplinary approach. Its task is to continuously study Hungarian political life, to describe and interpret the decisive trends and to enrich the academic means requisite for that work. The Institute has built up a broad national research network and serves as a centre and background institution for political science research conducted in several places in Hungary. HAS Institute for Psychology The scope of activities is basic research in psychology that contributes to scientific progress and may be applied directly or indirectly; complex, interdisciplinary psychological studies; applying and developing research methods; contribution to institutional forms of professional and scientific training and under- and post-graduate levels; scientific cooperation with Hungarian and international research sites; promotion of psychological 18

19 research; comprehensive participation in scientific public life and in the activities of the psychological community. HAS Centre for Regional Studies As the central institution of four research institutes, the Centre for Regional Studies is responsible for complex social science research with regional relevance, specifically, research on long-term Hungarian and international processes of regional and urban development, the globalising (European, Euro-regional, East-Central-European, Hungarian) spatial structures, their division of labour, their system of institution and tools; decisions concerning regional development in Hungary and the country s accession to the European Union. HAS Institute of Sociology The Institute is an important center for Hungarian social scientific research. Besides domestic research the Institute is involved in several EU-, OECD- and NATO-projects and maintains strong scientific co-operation with more than 30 research institutes. The basic aim is to conduct basic research on sociological theoretical and methodological issues; and to examine the dynamics of change in Hungarian society and to work out methods for solving current social problems and conflicts. It carries out empirical and interdisciplinary social research, while also pursuing policy-oriented research. 19

Since 2003, the University has operated on three campuses with seven faculties and adopted the new name: Corvinus University of Budapest (CUB) in The predecessors of the University were leading institutions of their scientific fields in Hungary. 20

21 The Corvinus University of Budapest defines itself as a teachingoriented research university where researchers achievements are of an international standard. Degrees awarded to students represent the transmission of professional knowledge of a similar kind to other universities with similar profiles. Corvinus degrees are acknowledged on the EU labour market. Regarding science disciplines, the University plays a major role in determining and enhancing the quality of higher education in Hungary. The educational profile of the University is on a par with international standards, and the University enjoys a market leader position in almost all segments of its profile. In other segments where the University is not a market leader it is still a major player. Demand for all of its study programmes is considerable. The study programme portfolio of the University, in line with its vision, covers each cycle, from undergraduate programmes through to doctoral programmes and, to these programmes, high quality human resources are allocated. The aim to widen the international study programme portfolio is in line with the vision and the development policy according to which the University should position itself on the international market as a training and research institution that is able to satisfy high international standards and offers (elite) programmes to highly talented students. Budapest Corvinus University is one of the most important Hungarian research and opinion-forming centers in the field of social sciences. The research activities of the Budapest Corvinus University are deeply embedded in the international relationship network of professional fields. Employees of the University are participants in several international research projects and regularly visit nearly all important universities and research places of the world, in Europe as well as in America and Asia. Notable foreign professors and researchers are also frequent guests at Corvinus University. Research carried out here represents nearly all areas of economy, sociology, political science and public administration, from mathematical economy to the functioning problems of the world economy and the European Union, from development issues of Latin America to the connection between innovation and sustainable development, from the institutional and controlling relationships of economy and society to regional issues. 21

23 Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) in terms of student and staff numbers, the quality of education and research, its international relations and prestige is a decisive, elite institution of state higher education in Hungary, which has been operating since Over the last hundred years ELTE has produced many world famous scientists and four Nobel Prize laureates among its teachers and alumni. The research projects carried out at the University encompass all fields of the humanities. The outstanding majors are constantly renewed due to novel results in teaching and research. The traditional interdisciplinary boundaries are redefined before our very eyes as a result of ongoing research in the fields of sociolinguistics, neurolinguistics, information and library science and other information-processing methodologies: media science, human and cultural management, cultural heritage research, translation and interpreting, etc. One of the basic functions of national philology is the study of the cultures of the Carpathian Basin, and the integration of the research results into education. Following the traditions of ELTE, and thanks to the European strategies of regionalism the institutions of the University entertain an ever-growing cooperational network with regional institutions beyond the borders of Hungary. Eötvös Loránd University has extensive formal agreements for cooperation and exchange with 120 universities in Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America at an institutional or faculty level. Besides the traditional connections to prestigious European institutions the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, the Sorbonne University in Paris or the University of Bristol, for example the last years have seen a strengthening of relations with the universities of Far Eastern countries (China, Japan, Korea and India) and those of the Americas, Africa and Australia. This entails the increasing acclaim of our University worldwide, which results in the growing number of foreign students, who engage in full- or parttime studies at our institutions. Recent years have seen a substantial increase in the ratio of Far Eastern students, and we expect the same to happen to the number of students from the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries of South-America. The main areas of cooperation are joint training and research projects and also the exchange of students and guest lecturers. Student and staff mobility are mostly supported by Erasmus and CEEPUS projects; currently ELTE has 298 partner universities all over Europe. ELTE is one of the members of EUA (European University Association), UNICA (Universities from Capitals of Europe), the Coimbra Group, the Utrecht Network and the Danube Rectors Conference as well as other international universtiy networks. 23

25 HAS Research Groups Attached to the University of Debrecen: Ethnographic Research Group Critical Editions of 18th and 19th c. Hungarian Literatura Research Group Research Group for Theoretical Linguistics The Faculty of Humanities has one of the oldest traditions at our university with studies in all major subjects, including literature, linguistics, foreign languages (English, German, French, Dutch, Latin, Greek, Russian, Polish, Italian, Japanese), history, ethnology, pedagogy, psychology, philosophy, sociology, political sciences. In most of these subjects it offers both BA and MA as well as doctoral studies. The faculty has an excellent pool of professors, five of them being members of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The number of doctors of the Hungarian Academy is also quite significant. With its overall scores the faculty occupies one of the leading positions among all faculties of all Hungarian universities, regardless of the discipline. Its three centres carry out significant theoretical research. In addition to these centres, we have just been awarded a sum of over a million euros for a project to establish an Innovative Research Team in the interdisciplinary field of man-machine communication. The Faculty of Humanities has leading role in it with strong collabopration with the Faculty of Informatics. The Faculty of Law as well as the Faculty of Economy are relatively new formations at our university (although the Faculty of Law has a long history and was re-established in the 1990s). Both are very popular among students and have a significant intake of students every year. All three faculties have powerful international relations both in the exchange of professors and students. Research projects are carried out in a number of important fields of the humanities and social sciences. We wish to place special emphasis here on our very successful Japanese studies program. Based on an initiative of the Japanese government in the early 1990s and supported by the Hungarian government, Japanese Studies is a strong outpost of Japanese culture and language not only in Debrecen but also in the wider region. Every year we have about 60 students enrolled, who have the opportunity to increase and improve their language skills as well as knowledge about Japan through scholarships to Japan and visits oversees. Every second year we organise a Japanese Day with a wide variety of cultural programs introducing visitors to the culture, history and language of Japan. 25

With its wide spectrum of teaching and research activities, it is known and recognised in the country and internationally as well. The University represents and accepts as its long tradition going back to the middle ages, while at the same time it also plays an active role in the task of institutionalising new knowledge that is aimed both at the present and the future. 26

27 With more than 500 different study programmes, its primary goal is to ensure high-level teaching and research in every possible area of study, assist the 33,000 students studying here as much as possible during their student life, organize study abroad scholarships and maintain and improve the quality of university services, libraries and clubs. The University of Pécs continuously works on expanding and improving its cooperation with other universities. It has extensive partnership agreements with notable universities of Europe, the United States of America and Asia. The University has signed 66 agreements with foreign Universities, and the scope of these agreements covers an intensive cooperation not only in the field of educational exchange but also in research. The university knowledgebase can be interpreted along three dimensions with respect to the research activities pursued at the University of Pécs. One concerns research results, which are produced with international co-operation in the university environment, that is, in labs and in the heads of researchers. The second one involves teaching, whereby a highly qualified labour force is trained that can succeed globally in the knowledge industry. The third one is the service dimension, which can ensure several important services that support the utilization of innovations by economic players in the international arena. 27

Legal studies are characterised by a strong slant towards constitutional, administrative and financial law, international law, Roman law and political sciences. The president and two members of the Constitutional Court of Hungary are on the staff of the Law School of Szeged University. 28

29 In sociology, there is a strong emphasis on empirical training, unique in its kind in Hungary, with focus on planning, conducting and processing polls and surveys. Economics features a strong research interest in the world economy as well as international finance and regional economics, a priority of EU economic research and planning. As far as history is concerned, it has a long tradition at the university with the strongest area being located within the field of medieval history, with a research group of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences affiliated here. Training and research in philosophy is mainly concerned with the history of European tradition of philosophy, as well as using philosophy as an integrative approach to establish links between themes in the humanities, social and natural sciences. Therefore it addresses issues in bioethics, religion, social ethics as well as cosmology. For most of the above fields, international links are provided through ERASMUS, CEEPUS or LEONARDO programmes sponsored by the EU, with partner universities ranging from countries such as Germany and Finland to Spain and France. Special features include French-Hungarian manager training at the Faculty of Economics, legal training in the French language and an American law programme in English and economic law in German at the School of Law. 29

37 Testimonials At the first SYLFF scholarship ceremony, on behalf of a colleague already doing her research in Poland, I was handed the scholarship document by President Domokos Kosáry. It was an uplifting ceremony. This colleague was followed by four more young researchers, who were near to my heart both as professionals and as human beings. The second one is now a Doctor of the Academy, and the last one only yesterday sent me the thesis of his freshly completed, high quality and interesting doctoral dissertation to be defended shortly. I think this should suffice as a tribute to this foundation really supporting researchers of truly outstanding talent. Just as it was one and a half decades ago, so today it is - giving a professional start to researchers is very difficult and under-financed. SYLFF was, for the colleagues whom I personally know, a last resort for research funding and an opportunity to become professional researchers. This was the most it could offer. In the past four or five years I have mostly been writing assessments. But on the basis of applications I am convinced that it is needed today as much as it was at the time of starting. To end with a really personal note: I carry my Notebook daily in the black bag that I was been given by the Foundation. Bálint Csatári HAS Centre for Regional Studies Social, ethnic and language-related conflicts have caused tremendous turmoil in post-communist East Central Europe. The interaction of these factors is poorly understood, hence leaders, rather than act rationally, grope about in the dark. These formerly East Central European problems have now become problems within the European Union. Through the sociolinguistic/ language-planning research in the Carpathian Basin sponsored by SYLFF, Hungarian linguists, both in Hungary and in neighboring countries, are now better able to help politicians and others defuse ethnic strife.

38 Hungarian intellectual life has a rich philosophical tradition think of names of world renown like Georg Lukács, Michael Polányi, or Imre Lakatos. And philosophy should be of great significance for contemporary Hungary, a country for many years now in deep ideological and ethical crisis, badly in need of a cognitive and moral revival. Indeed the philosophical profession is thriving, and young talents abound. But with research conditions continuously deteriorating, many, and indeed the best, are leaving the country. In my experience, SYLFF has provided, and is providing, a unique possibility to mitigate this trend. I believe it is quite crucial that its range of support should not diminish; indeed it would be most welcome if it could be widened. Kristóf Nyíri Member of HAS Budapest University of Technology and Economics Interdisciplinary relations between philosophy, cognitive science and social studies are urgently needed in Central Europe. The support provided by SYLFF has become a very rich and inspiring source in combining the empirical, conceptual, and philosophical traditions in this domain. Young students coming from physics and biology have been supported by this scheme and were able to provide new, internationally acknowledged theoretical insight into overcoming the gaps between two cultures, those of the humanities and the sciences. Csaba Pléh Member of HAS Budapest University of Technology and Economics Innovative, great scholarship and outstanding research are the products of bright minds and brilliant institutions. Successful encounters of good projects and proper funding lead to lasting results. This is true of the humanities just as much as of science. As a historian in charge of coordinating numerous projects and advising young scholars, I can refer to SYLFF as a shining example of this synergy. Systematic long term planning combined with quick and efficient responses to new, quite unexpected challenges played an important role here. Hungarian historical scholarship would have lost quite a number of ambitious, hard working young professionals if SYLFF had not given them a chance for the implementation of their plans.

39 Professional Hungarian history writing was established in the 19th century and it can boast a multitude of authors and pieces that measured up to the international requirements of their time. Even though the political-ideological circumstances of the time forced professionality between very narrow boundaries after , there are still valuable writings from this age handed down to us and, as of the sixties, reintegration into the wider world started. On the one hand, the changing of political systems taking place two decades ago yielded great creative freedom, but on the other hand the wellknown economic difficulties are alleviated by various research-supporting funds. Among these in the field of historical science the supportive force of SYLFF is very large. Thank goodness Hungary does not lack young, talented historians even today. As a supervisor and assessor I can claim that the creativity of several of them has been greatly enhanced by this well-managed, excellent foundation. Pál Pritz Eötvös Loránd University Hungary has a small, open economy whose development is highly conditional upon the integration of her R&D and innovation sector into the global world of technology development. Hungarian high-tech firms are mainly owned by multinationals which rely on high-quality brains in the country a legacy of Hungary from the rich Central European intellectual tradition. Exploring this asset can greatly benefit from international cooperation in high-tech industries, and our SYLFF-sponsored effort to identify links between foreign investors and Hungarian R&D capacity has resulted in a number of international partnerships in various high-tech sectors including IT, pharmaceuticals and logistics.

40 For Talented Young Scholars Balázs Hámori, Member of the Steering Committee When the Japanese Foundation and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, together with the representatives of five large Hungarian universities: Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest), Janus Pannonius University (Pécs), József Attila University (Szeged), Kossuth Lajos University (Debrecen) and Karl Marx University of Economy (Budapest) gathered together in 1989 to exchange ideas about the introduction to Hungary of The Ryoichi Saskawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund Program, the country was in the fever of political changes. The discussion focussed on ways in which Hungary could become an active member of the SYLFF Community. All Hungarian professionals who were in the least bit proud of themselves and who took part in the forming of public opinion, all the representatives of the world of science, knew that, from the point of view of the future, it would be a key question how representatives of both the humanities and the sciences could join the main international stream of scientific and professional opinion-forming. In the world of the then-vanishing system of command economy and a social structure based on that, the representatives of the humanities and the sciences were obstructed in building international relationships, in publishing thoughts alien to the political system and in the professionally based and free forming of public opinion. If today we browse the website of The Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund Program it becomes clear that what engaged the attention of the representatives of the Hungarian social sciences of the time is an immanent part of this program and that the program could open bigger or smaller windows in a natural way to a world that had been more or less closed to Hungarian professionals. For example we can read the following: The Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund Program was established in 1987 by The Nippon Foundation. Selected institutions of higher learning each receive endowments (permanent funds) of US$1 40

41 million which are invested and managed by the receiving institutions. Under this unique scheme, the earnings of their investments are used to provide fellowships to students enrolled in master s and doctoral degree programs that fall within the parameters of the social sciences, humanities, and the performing arts. 1 On this website we also can find the short summary of the Progam s vision and mission: Vision: Mission: The world is one family and all mankind are brothers and sisters. Ryoichi Sasakawa To support the education of outstanding students pursuing graduate level study in the social sciences and humanities with high potential for leadership and commitment to exercising leadership in local, national, regional and international affairs, in public as well as in private endeavors. To nurture future leaders who will transcend geopolitical, religious, ethnic, cultural and other boundaries and will contribute to peace and the well-being of humankind. 2 So much was clear to the Hungarian professional gathering for the meeting in 1989 that supporting young talents and sending them to an international arena would be the key to the reintegration of the Hungarian humanities and social sciences in the international mainstream of science. Those present knew full well that the future would depend on whether the younger generations of scientists growing up at the time would be able to access and contribute to the most important and most up-to-date information in their fields of science and to initiate a dialogue in the world by their own achievements and to adapt the latest knowledge in the humanities and social sciences to the Hungarian situation and practice

42 The past two Hungarian decades of the SYLFF program have fulfilled these ideas and expectations. Fresh air, fresh viewpoints and attitudes and a new network of international relations have flown into the world of Hungarian science through the work of the new generations of scientists. The scholarship holders have become a determining factor in the forming of professional opinion. The best of them have become leaders in their professional fields. They carry news of Hungarian scientific thinking and of the latest ideas and development into the world and they create and bring the latest professional views enhancing the field of the humanities and social development. In 1989 the six most important institutions of Hungarian scientific life came together in order to take a step forward. Their cooperation has achieved success after success through the work of talented, motivated and open-minded young scientists. The founder Ryoichi Sasakawa s dream of cooperation has come to fruition also in Hungary. If we can envision anything about the future it is precisely the reinforcement of this idea of national and international working together and cooperation in science as well as beyond that, in all other areas of life and development. I am happy and I consider it my honour to have been able to take a role in the Hungarian application of the SYLFF Program for almost two decades. 42

69 Hungarian SYLFF Fellows Association (HUNS) Csíky Balázs, Principal Organiser of HUNS In January 2006, the Association of Leipzig University SYLFF Fellows (A.L.U.S.) held an international conference in Leipzig, Germany for the Central European fellows. The Hungarian fellows were represented by Balázs Csíky at this conference. The example of A.L.U.S. as a well-functioning association inspired him to organize our own local association in Hungary. The networking of Hungarian fellows had antecedents. In October 2002 the Hungarian Academy of Sciences held a conference in Debrecen for the Hungarian fellows, and Csaba Máté Sarnyai represented Hungary at two SYLFF Africa/Europe Regional Forums (2003, 2005). Sarnyai also joined the organization of Hungarian SYLFF Fellows Association and the other co-organizer was Zita Rozália Bedőházi. We submitted an application for an award under the SYLFF Network Program. The Scholarship Division approved our proposal for the first year s funding in July We organized a conference with the collaboration of the Hungarian SYLFF Administration on 16th November 2006 in Budapest, in the central building of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, with the aim of developing networks and collaboration among Hungarian fellows. The meeting was attended by seventeen fellows and other guests. This event was also the first assembly of HUNS. The Hungarian SYLFF fellows were invited to two conferences in The principal organizer, Balázs Csíky, and Csaba Máté Sarnyai (co-organizer) participated in the Prague SYLFF conference and held presentations, and also participated in the 2007 Africa/Europe Regional Forum in Bochum. It was a great experience for us and a good occasion to become acquainted with fellows from different countries and with different backgrounds. We were able to meet our friends again. The book of the 2006 Leipzig SYLFF conference papers was published in January 2007, containing also the paper of the principal organizer. 69
