"It’s important for CEU to stay. The stance of HAS on the matter is that it is important to hold up this important intellectual workshop," said Laszlo Lovasz, President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences to mta.hu.
“CEU is a very important scientific center and international institution of higher education. It is highly important to keep the community of researchers and faculty, the workshops, the research institutions and the scientific life together. I am sure that the parties involved can find the solution enabling a smooth operation. The Hungarian Academy of Sciences and myself are happy to mediate in this,” said Laszlo Lovasz.
