The Economics Section of the National Scientific Student Research Projects (OTDK) was hosted by the Faculty of Business and Economics of University of Pannonia between the 18th and 20th of April 2013. This is one of the most prestigious events organized for students studying economics from all over the country, where they can present the results of their researches. Participating in this conference is usually mentioned as the first step to be a successful expert in any economic field in the future.
The National Scientific Student Research Projects is held in every 2nd year in 16 different disciplines in different locations. The conference in this year broke a couple of records: approximately 650 research projects were nominated which is the highest number during the history of the event. It also means that more than 760 students from 32 universities arrived to Veszprém to present their research results.
After the scientific part of the conference the students and professors could enjoy the offered cultural programmes. One of the special guests was Csaba Vastag, the winner of the X-Factor Hungary in 2010 and the student of the Faculty, Péter Rozsnyói jazz pianist, the Caffé Bambini and the Pannon Universitas Band, which bands’ members are students of the university. The Faculty offered a new opportunity this year: visitors could do sightseeing in the regular way or by using QR codes.
