Munich university signs accord with CEU

Munich University of Technology president Wolfgang Herrmann led a delegation to the CEU in Budapest on Tuesday and signed an agreement on co-operation between the two universities with CEU president and Rector Michael Ignatieff.

CEU said in a statement that the agreement covers three new international professor positions in the fields of political science, technical science and social sciences, as well as a number of other joint activities.

The two parties asked the Hungarian government to ensure legal guarantees for CEU that make it possible to jointly open a new chapter of Hungarian and Bavarian scientific and university co-operation.

The statement intimates that this agreement between the two universities is very similar to an offer Manfred Weber made to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán when he was in Budapest before the suspension of Fidesz’s EPP membership.
