Hungary (LTER-HU)

General Information




Hungarian scientists were present at the founding of the ILTER, the International Long-Term Ecological Research Network, in 1993. The Hungarian LTER network (LTER Hungary, or LTER-HU) was established two years later in 1995, with three sites, the Balaton LTER, KISKUN LTER and Síkfőkút LTER. The vision LTER Hungary is contributing to the quality of life by means of long-term complex site-based ecological and socio-ecological research at local, regional and global scales. Beside scientific research, LTER Hungary aims to be active in various forms of science-society interactions, from education to transdisciplinary research and stakeholder involvement.
