Organised annually in Budapest by the Antall József Knowledge Centre in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary and the International Visegrad Fund, think.BDPST is a strategic conference focusing on regional development and the perspectives of research, innovation and future technologies.

The main objective of the conference, think.BDPST, is to provide a regional platform for high-level representatives of the governmental, academic, and business sectors to initiate dialogue about the different approaches to innovation and new technologies, including the security, economic, and social dimensions. think.BDPST also offers an opportunity for policymakers to discuss possibilities of fostering smart growth solutions, exchanging experiences and best practices, as well as drafting joint action plans.

With initiating such dialogues, the conference aims to foster cooperation, promote the implementation of joint activities, as well as facilitate the formation of strategic partnerships in the Central European region, with specific regard to the V4 countries. The conference could greatly contribute to the establishment of a common regional development framework.
