Call for Application
think.BDPST Young Leaders’ Forum
Budapest, 29-31 March 2017

 

The Antall József Knowledge Centre (AJKC) cordially invites you to participate in the Young Leaders’ Forum (YLF) of think.BDPST, Hungary’s strategic conference on regional development and the perspectives of research, innovation, and future technologies. The conference is organised on 29-31 March 2017 in Budapest.


The Antall József Knowledge Centre was established in 2010 in cooperation with the Corvinus University of Budapest as an independent, non-governmental organisation, where one of our key aims is to support the intellectual development and research activities of students, researchers and young professionals in line with the philosophy of József Antall, the first freely elected Prime Minister of Hungary, who served between 1990 and 1993. Our institution also puts great emphasis on talent
management.

The Young Leaders’ Forum (YLF) will feature outstanding young professionals (aged 24-38), soon to become important actors and decision-makers in the field of innovation, political and social sciences,
as well as healthcare. The main purpose of YLF is to foster a lively dialogue among young innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs, as well as active PhD researchers, young diplomats, and young professionals at companies investing in innovative projects. During the three-day event, participants will have the opportunity to exchange best practices, experience, and ideas in order to create a common standpoint on the main topics of the conference, as well as to attend its different sessions. As a follow-up to YLF, we plan to create an international alumni-network to enhance the future cooperation of dedicated young experts.
