At present there are more than 310 institutional members of Hungarnet. Hungarnet represent Hungary in international networking organisation like RARE, EARN, DANTE.

Hungarnet is ready and open to any meaningful international cooperation.

We are ready to exchange our experience with our Russian colleagues especially because we have several decades of experience of cooperation with Russian research organisations.

Hungary is organising the 1996 Joint European Networking Conference. We hope many Russian colleagues will participate.

To support this we are planning to organise with the help of NATO an other workshop for developing countries before the conference.

This certainly give a better chance for countries not having financial resources to send their people to have training opportunities together with participation to the JENC7 in Budapest.
