About Us


Dear Visitor,

On 29-31 March 2017, Hungary will host the second think.BDPST conference, a unique forum for strategic dialogue on how technological development and innovation influence our economies, societies and security in a rapidly changing world. After a successful inaugural event in March 2016, think.BDPST in 2017 will focus on the challenges and perspectives of new technologies and innovation in employment, education, healthcare and medicine. Notable speakers from the business world, the academia, politics and the NGO sector will guarantee inspiring and bold discussions on these topics. Taking place in Budapest, a city with a vibrant scientific community and start-up ecosystem, think.BDPST also helps explore Hungary and the Visegrad Group as ideal destinations for innovative and future-oriented investments.

The conference is organised by the Antall József Knowledge Centre, an independent non-governmental organisation which supports 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 after the fall of Communism. think.BDPST enjoys the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary and the International Visegrad Fund, the Visegrad Group’s common institution.

Let me extend to you my cordial invitation to this special event. Take part in think.BDPST and ‘connect to the future’.

Yours faithfully,

Péter Szijjártó
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary
