Hungary's National University of Public Service has agreed with the Chinese tech giant on a scholarship program called SEED, Hungarian media reported. Huawei is helping Hungary build out its 5G network, as the government aims to reach more than 90 percent of Hungarian homes with Internet coverage by 2050.
Huawei signed an agreement with the Hungarian National University of Public Service for the SEED Scholarship program in Beijing on Monday. Peter Szijjarto, Hungary's Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said on his Facebook page that Hungary is at the forefront of digitization, and Huawei plays a decisive role in that. "With the help of Huawei, the development of 5G networks is taking place throughout Hungary, the technological level of the Hungarian economy is improving, and we are working to ensure that more than 90 percent of Hungarian households have access to the Internet by 2050," the minister explained.
Mr Cijardo said Hungary would continue to provide an open and fair economic and business environment for foreign investors, with the only strong point being that companies must respect Hungarian laws and regulations. "Huawei appreciates this, so our cooperation is expanding further. "The SEEDs scholarship program is Huawei's goal to support talent development in technology fields, such as student research related to 5G. Tens of millions of forints will be offered to support student projects, including science and technology, environmental protection and even economic research in China's technology sector.
Launched in 2021 in 12 European countries by Huawei Technologies Co., LTD, the SEEDs scholarship scheme aims to help the most talented and ambitious students achieve their career development. Among Hungarian universities, nearly 30 students from the University of Page, the University of Jeristvan Seceni, the University of Obuda and other universities participated in this project, and many of their works have been successfully displayed at the National Science Students' Conference.
Huawei's Hungarian subsidiary first signed a support agreement with the university in 2014. The SEEDs scholarship programme was launched at the Hungarian National University of Public Service to focus on research and innovation related to 5G. Huawei said it chose Hungary's National University of Public Service (NKE) as its new partner because of their special focus on today's pressing topics, such as the training of experts in environmental protection and water management, the Chinese economy, technology research or cyber security.
