Centre for Agricultural Research

The Centre for Agricultural Research (ATK) was established in 2012 through the merger of storied research institutes. Its research portfolio covers a wide range of fields in agricultural science, environmental management and environmental protection. In its comprehensive scientific program, ATK seeks to create an organic unity between exploratory, targeted, methodological and applied research, as well as activities related to development and innovation. It participates extensively in domestic and international scientific collaborations with a wide range of partners, including higher education institutions and research institutes. ATK also engages in science communication and popularization activities, in which the unique scientific information center “Agroverzum” plays a key role. The on-site Beethoven Memorial Museum and the summer Beethoven concert series, which has been organized in Martonvásár for more than 60 years, mark the commitment of ATK to the preservation of our cultural heritage.
