About Us


Antall József Knowledge Centre

The Antall József Knowledge Centre (AJKC) came into being in the form of a foundation in cooperation with the Corvinus University of Budapest. The institution is named after Dr József Antall (1932–1993), the first freely elected Prime Minister of Hungary, who served from 1990 to 1993.

The Knowledge Centre is an organisation independent of parties, ideologies and current politics. Its primary objectives are to foster the Antall tradition and promote the spread of knowledge.

Our main mission is to launch programmes which, beyond the theoretical education provided by universities, equip students with wide-ranging practical knowledge via conferences, lecture series, trainings and roundtable conversations. The profile of the Knowledge Centre is also characterised by research activities and publications in the field of political and social sciences.
