S3 Priorities


Name Description
Clean and renewable energies This priority involving the energy sector is designed to reduce the energy dependency of Hungary by means of clean and environmentally friendly energy and promoting the related RDI activities, so that the energy produced locally is sustainable, decreases the environmental load and is cost effective, in particular for the households. In addition to using the renewable energies and thermal water for energy purposes, another objective is the use of bio‐ energy (such as biomass, biogas, bio refinery methods or the use of various wastes and by‐products for energy purposes) as well.
Healthy local food The priority targets the development of Hungarian food industry in terms of the production of high‐quality foods of high added value, foods supporting a healthy diet, functional foods and Hungarian specialities, as well as the shortening of food chains and in the field of food safety.
Inclusive and sustainable society This is a horizontal priority aims to comply with the newest innovation model directions in education and training, health conscious education and prevention, promoting entrepreneurial skills, organisation and management development, regional development.
Healthy society and wellbeing The priority wants to cover the entire health care industry innovation chain ranging from the better understanding of the diseases, through prevention and recognition, to curing and personalized doctoring through the use of advanced technologies, such as biotechnology in health industry, biomedicine and pharmaceutical industry, systems biology‐based remedy, advanced diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
Agricultural innovation The aim of the priority is to advance and establish the innovations facilitating sectoral renewal from the agricultural knowledge centres through producer undertakings to individuals, with the aim of enhancing the innovation potential of the sector. Such complex agribusiness developments should be implemented that represent an opportunity to use innovative R&D solutions in crop production and protection technologies, in addition to animal production and veterinary medicine.
Sustainable environment The priority is aimed at promoting the sustainability of the environment and natural resource management (e.g. environmental biotechnology) through the research and development of modern technologies and the implementation of the environmental industry and sectoral innovation. In addition to the advanced innovative water treatment technologies and waste water treatment and waste management, priority will be given to the non‐pipe technologies.
ICT and information services This is a horizontal priority intending to support sectoral priorities, such as bioinformatics or diagnostic imaging in the health industry, or the intelligent transport systems in the vehicle industry, or “smart city” in the energy domain.
Advanced technologies in the vehicle and other machine industries This is a priority which covers several segments of the machine industry RDI, whose priority (but non‐ exclusive) objective is to develop the vehicle industry from the development of vehicle components to the different branches of machine production (including, but not limited to, agricultural, food processing, precision and household machinery).
