Hungarian-Uzbek innovation programmes are being launched

Startup Campus Innovation Agency is launching Hungarian-Uzbek startup programmes with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The main goal of the university and large company pilot programme is to help the participating companies to enter foreign markets and to develop business relations between the two countries.

The organisers are launching two separate programmes in connection with the Hungarian-Uzbek Startup and Research and Development Programme announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. On one hand, the University Startup Accelerator Programme (USAP) is looking for innovative ideas that address global challenges in the fields of energy, urbanisation and healthcare. The 3-month online acceleration will feature the best 4-6 idea-phase projects, and their work will be helped by mentors from Startup Campus and the National Office for the Implementation of Innovation and Technology Transfer, Uzbekistan to turn their ideas into actionable business concepts. The university partners of the acceleration are the Széchenyi István University of Győr and the Uzbek University of Samarqand.


On the other hand, the Corporate Startup Accelerator Programme (CSAP) is looking for innovative SMEs that provide future technologies for Hungarian and Uzbek companies in the fields of energy, urbanization, healthcare and agriculture. In the online acceleration, which will also last for 3 months, companies (2-3 selected) are tasked with developing new solutions for outsourcing companies with the involvement of industry professionals and business development mentors.


The two programmes, which will run until the fall of 2023, build heavily on the experience of Startup Campus' previous domestic and international business development services. In addition to domestic programmes, the agency successfully operates offices in Germany and the United Kingdom as well and has also developed prosperous programmes with partners in Malaysia, India and Azerbaijan.

In the framework of the partnership, a delegation of 3 members from the National Office for Innovation Implementation and Technology Transfer visited Hungary between 11-14 April and had the opportunity to meet with the representatives of the Mathias Corvinus College, Tungsram, Express Innovation Agency, the Ministry of Innovation and Technology and Albitech. Selected startups and innovative SMEs have the chance to continue their business development activities in the recently handed over INNO Technopark in Tashkent, focusing on the Central Asian region.

The programmes are funded by the Hungarian-Uzbek Startup and Research and Development Programme. Within the framework of the Programme announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, on 15 June 2021 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs published a call for HUF 1 million to promote the foreign market activities and international competitiveness of domestic micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.
