As he said: extensive cooperation opportunities can emerge from the partnership in France.
We discussed the establishment of cooperation between the French institutions and the University of Debrecen, which can be realized in the field of education and research. The ambassador promised to promote the broadening and deepening of international relations, and the mutual student exchange program was also discussed. Together, we assess the possibility of which French institutions we can contact in addition to the existing collaborations. French companies can also get to know the University of Debrecen and the city, and this can open up additional opportunities in the educational, economic or corporate fields

The purpose of my visit is primarily to find the focus areas in which we can cooperate with UD in the future and to connect Hungarian and French higher education. We would like to support the French language training at the University of Debrecen, thus contributing to the strengthening of centuries-old traditions and the establishment of closer partnership relations
