Application to the Innovation Lab

Application to the Innovation Lab

Apply to the Innovation Lab of ELTE Faculty of Infomatics, where you will receive study credits for developing your own startup idea!

Who are we waiting for?

BSc, MSc or PhD students, as well as university professors and researchers,

  • who have a business or product development idea related to their own research or studies (even if this idea is currently immature and malleable); or would like to work on the business idea of their fellow student/researcher within the framework of the ELTE IK Innovation Lab;
  • who feel the desire and energy to put into practice what it takes to turn their ideas into reality, turn their research results into innovation, develop their ideas into products and services that make the world a better place;
  • who commit to working on their business idea for the next eight months or so, and to this end participate in the weekly lab session, which is expected to take place on Monday afternoon;

  • who are open, active, motivated, dedicated, hardworking and self-sufficient.

We also welcome applications from teams who are/have participated in the HSUP program. We believe that joint participation in HSUP and InnoLab programs increases the chances of success.

What do we offer?

  • development of skills and knowledge transfer necessary for the implementation of (startup) projects;
  • real progress in implementing your own project – progress that you could not make on your own in the same amount of time;
  • upon conscientious completion of the program, up to 5 academic credits in the fall semester of 2024;
  • recognition of the work carried out within the framework of the Laboratory as an internship upon proven completion of the number of hours required by the University for the completion of the internship;
  • the project budget paid as a monthly scholarship in the last 5 months of the lab (HUF 50,000/month), which you can use for the implementation of the project developed within the framework of the laboratory.
