Szeged keeps its role as regional hub in transborder cooperation – this time in legal training

On 21 January 2020, the University of Szeged signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the University of Novi Sad (Serbia) in the field of health sciences as part of a cooperation established (in September 2019) between the Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities and the Health Ministry of the Serbian Government.


On 13 February 2020, the University and its Faculty of Law and Political Sciences reached a turning point with the signature of another strategic cooperation, realizing the goals set forth in a Government Resolution of 4 April 2014. In this Resolution the Hungarian Government acknowledged that “the academic and scientific cooperation between the University Business Academy of Novi Sad and the University of Szeged Faculty of Law and Political Sciences is of outstanding significance in elevating the standards of legal education across the border.”


As part of this cooperation, as the Resolution specifies, opportunities will open to organize summer and winter universities, guest lectures as well as academic and student mobility programs, which constitutes an important step forward for both institutions in developing their international relations.


Representing Prof. Dr. László Rovó, the Rector of our University, Prof. Dr. Márta Görög, Dean of the Faculty of Law and Political Sciences signed the cooperation with the management of the University Business Academy of Novi Sad at its seat, in Subotica. Members of the Serbian delegation were: Prof. Dr. Marko Carić (Rector), Prof. Dr. Mirko Kulić (Dean), dr. Marijana Mladenov (Vice Dean, Director for International Relations), Prof. Dr. Vladimir Medović, Jean Monnet professor, dr. Bálint Pásztor lecturer, and Srđan Cvijanović, manager.


After the signature, Dean Görög talked to the students of the Academy about the current challenges of Hungarian civil law and responded to questions.
