Heidelberg University - ELTE Joint Summer University Program

Welcome to the group “Heidelberg University – ELTE Joint Summer University Program”

This group is for everyone who has been participant of this joint summer university. Here we would like to meet current participants and always provide up-to-date information to them and also to keep in touch with those of you who were members of the summer school in previous years.
The cooperation between Heidelberg University and Eötvös Loránd University dates back to 1982. The two universities were always deeply involved in faculty and student exchange.

About the summer university:

The idea of a joint summer university was born in July 2009 when ten students from Heidelberg participated in a one-week summer school in Budapest which focused on applied geographical topics in Politics, Economy, and History. The partner universities agreed on establishing a joint summer university program in order to develop a network of German and Hungarian students, to extend the courses offered to participants, and to establish a platform for joint research projects for students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and professors.

Topics of the summer university:

2010: German-Hungarian History of Culture and Economy
2011: City, urban development, region
2013: Cultural and Ethnic Diversity in Central and Eastern Europe with Special Focus on Hungary
