Teh Institute for Particle and Nuclear Phyics and the Institute for Solid State Physics and Optics of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics are the Centres of Excellence of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The Academy decided that the two institutes will be entitled to use the brand name “Excellent MTA Institute” until 30 June 2027.
As reported earlier, the Academy had a comprehensive audit according to international standards in 2019 with the participation of Hungarian and international experts invited by the MTA and the ITM. The audit, which was completed in April 2019, proved that the research network of the MTA ranks as one of the most excellent research networks in Europe. The performance of the network is outstanding, and there are several research workshops on the cutting edge of science which can be regarded as national treasures.
