The Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) Lendület (“Momentum”) Programme aims to bring young researchers to Hungary (or return to Hungary after time abroad) and thereby increase Hungarian scientific competitiveness. The programme is awarded to 12-15 individual Lendület research teams for periods of up to 5 years. The Program is offered at two levels: the Lendület I level and the Lendület II level. The Lendület I level is offered to researchers under 40 years of age, and the Lendület II level is offered to those under 45. Candidates for both programs must possess a PhD at the time of application.
