RECENS is for the integrity of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and condemns political interventions
RECENS is a research group that operates solely on funding that is acquired in highly competitive calls. Our funding has been awarded based on quality and innovativeness of the proposals and scientific excellence of the researchers involved. Scientific excellence of our researchers has been judged by our previous research output, mainly by our international scientific publications. We do not receive any part of the head quota that is distributed to the host Research Institute. As such, we are an independent research unit that pursues fundamental research. We carry out our work without any political aim, not driven by any political interest. In this position, we can clearly express that we do not tolerate and we condemn any political attempt that tries to intervene in research activities or tries to determine research directions and results.

Joint statement of Hungarian ERC grant winners regarding Government plans concerning the budgetary funding and operation of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences
Hungarian scientists awarded the „international scientific Olympic golden medal” declare that a decision changing the conditions of the funding and managing of a national institution with an almost 200-year-old history can only be successful if it is built on coordinated and meaningful prior consultations.
The Hungarian Academy of Sciences founded the Lendület (Momentum) Program in 2009 as an excellence program for young scientists. The primary aim of the program is to renew academic and university research programs by inviting excellent Hungarian researchers back home from abroad and keeping talented researchers in the country. To the present day, 164 Lendület (Momentum) Research Groups have been founded. The majority of them have signed the declaration below.
