Óbuda University

Óbuda University is the second largest technical university in Hungary with 13000 students, 6 faculties, 3 doctoral schools and 3 campuses. Óbuda University, the legal successor of Budapest Tech – or rather its legal predecessors: Bánki Donát Polytechnic, Kandó Kálmán Polytechnic and the Technical College of Light Industry – was established on January 1, 2010. Óbuda University has the only Engineering Education Centre in Hungary and has a strong relationship with industry for already ten years, which is the foundation of skill oriented learning. In 2014 the university launched the work-based dual education program. Most candidates in this program are from the faculty of IT engineering. It is a mission of the University to make higher-education more accessible in regions without higher education institutions, therefore a “higher education centre for community based studies” is established in the city of Salgótarján.

 

Óbuda University is the founder of the Hungarian STEM platform and is member of the EU STEM Coalition. Having long term experience with education-industry collaboration and the organisation of a variation of science competitions and activities, Óbuda University is well suited to boost a national pilot programme in Hungary.

Science on Stage Europe

Science on Stage is Europe’s biggest network from STEM teachers for teachers. The ultimate goal of the non-profit organisation is to improve science teaching by supporting the teachers’ personal exchange about good practice teaching ideas at national and international educational festivals, teacher training or via teacher exchange programmes. By raising the motivation of their teachers more schoolchildren will be encouraged to consider a career in science, ICT or engineering.
Launched in 2000, Science on Stage reaches about 100,000 teachers and teacher trainers in 30 countries. A network of National Steering Committees in these countries provides the interface to their national science teaching communities. Moreover non-European countries have the possibility to join the Science on Stage network as ‘Associate Members’, spreading good practice teaching ideas for STEM around the globe.
Science on Stage Europe is the umbrella organisation that supports its member countries with the realisation of their activities and connects STEM teachers with enthralling teaching ideas across borders.
