The Hungarian Science and Technology Foundation (TETALAP) is a non-profit public foundation established by the Hungarian Minister for Foreign Affairs in 1994. Its mission is to develop the international relations of the Hungarian R&D community, to participate in Hungary’s EU integration efforts by promoting activities in the field of science and technology and to facilitate the access of interested Hungarian parties to EU R&D funding.
