The New National Excellence Program (Új Nemzeti Kiválóság Program – ÚNKP) is a scholarship program founded by the government to encourage excellence in higher education, with the aim to provide support to young Hungarian researchers to start their career and later stay in their field of research. Almost 800 grant applications have been submitted to ELTE in 2021/2022, of which 345 have been supported. The closing event of the 2021/2022 program was an Institutional on-line conference organized by ELTE on the 31 st of August, giving opportunity to the public to gain insight into the exciting, internationally embedded topics with potential impacts to society. The professional board of reviewers finally chose some of the most outstanding research of the closed competition – where our colleague, Judit Abdai was also included with her report titled “Study of minimally required behaviour inventory of artificial social agents”. Congratulations, Judit!
