Cooperation agreement signed with Ural State Agricultural University

The new management of SZIU’s Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences (FESS), entering into office on 1st July 2013, signed a cooperation agreement with the Institute of Economics of the Ural State Agricultural University in Ekaterinburg, Russia. The cooperation will cover student and teacher exchanges, joint research activities and the exchange of publications on all the scientific fields that are included in Szent István University’s profile.

In the course of their official visit between 9th and 13th July 2013, the delegation headed by Prof. h.c. Dr. József Káposzta, dean of FESS managed to explore the cooperation possibilities with two further higher educational institutions: they had the opportunity to meet the rector of Ural Federal University, which is one of the 9 most prominent institutions in Russia, and an agreement has been prepared with the Veterinary University of Troick as well.

The General Consul of Hungary in Ekaterinburg, Mr. Sándor Molnári had an important role in the preparation of the visit, and he ensured the Hungarian delegation that he would continue to provide help in accelerating the cooperation between the two countries.

The Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences considers the development of the Russian relations a high priority issue, and will endeavour to share the conclusions of the meetings with all the faculties of SZIU so that mutual cooperations can be generated in all relevant fields.
