"One of the most attractive features of CEU is its openness. It is committed to the ideal of the open society, it is open to students coming from all around the world and it is open to new ideas and directions in science. It is not by accident that the first network science PhD program in Europe was launched at CEU and our department is worldwide the first having network science in its name. I am fascinated by the inspiring environment at this university.
Professor Janos Kertesz has been appointed head of the new Department of Network and Data Science. Kertesz already directs the PhD in Network Science program at CEU.
