Champions of the present - heroes of the future

The 10th of November in 2023 is first time John von Neumann University organizes its TEDx event, joining the well-known and international TED family. Along with many other occasions in 2023, the TEDxNeumann event celebrates the 120th anniversary of the birth of the institution’s eponymous figure, John von Neumann. 

As Neumann strongly believed, we also think that seemingly separate items might be in close relation with each other. As our motto puts it: everything is connected! In the system of complex networks that make up our world, our university set the task of initiating high-level changes. Initiating our TEDx event series is already a part of this.

The speakers of our event this year are going to be telling us about innovation, sustainability, the eurasian connection and the human and technological world that surrounds us – sharing with us their ideas, thoughts, experiences and stories.


The University

The long-term objective of John von Neumann University is to become a “citadel” for state-of-the-art education, research, development and innovation (R&D&I), technology transfer and services in Hungary and East-Central Europe, contributing to the creation of a knowledge-based European society and preserving the educational and cultural traditions of its predecessors.


The faculties of the University are:

  • GAMF Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science
  • Faculty of Economics and Business
  • Faculty of Horticulture and Rural Development


The cornerstones of the University's value system are: professional commitment, student-orientedness, an ethical and empathic approach, quality, efficiency, responsibility, and reliability. In the creation of its programmes, this University of applied sciences aims to strike a balance between core fundamentals, modern know-how that can prepare students directly for their professional careers, and the practical application of such knowledge. The University continuously adapts its educational potential to European trends and demands, and takes on a lion’s share in regional research and development projects.

The University’s network of relations, readiness to cooperate, and study programmes that are constantly adapted to accommodate changing trends in economic and social life, guarantee that, in accordance with the strategic aims of Hungarian higher education, our graduates will be highly-qualified professionals who are equipped with marketable knowledge and competencies that the labour market demands and recognises.
