Research with transgenic plants in the Agricultural Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences is primarily related to applications that are essential for the genetic improvement of cereals. The two main directions are connected to wheat and maize breeding and are focused on improving agronomic and nutritional traits. This paper highlights experiments in these areas, which are conducted in national as well as international collaborations. The transparency of this work is ensured by the dissemination of information about approved confined field tests to the public via the internet.

In this paper we would like to introduce two newly identified Old Uyghur fragments kept in the Research Department of Dunhuang Academy, China. The first one (D0913) is a small fragment which we identified as part of another copy of the Ci’en zhuan 慈恩轉, namely of a colophon to the 4th book of the Old Uyghur translation. The second one (D0623) written on the verso side of a Chinese Buddhist scroll of T. 643 is an Old Uyghur poem which can be compared to the Ratnasūrya avadāna.

The evidence for a philosophical project assignment for the mathematical sciences in the Academy can be traced back to the generation after Plato, and as such it is the result of philosophical reflection on the intellectual enterprise pursued at the Academy. This is then contrasted with the histories of the mathematical sciences compiled in Aristotle's school, which acknowledged the methodological and ontological independence of these disciplines.

Abstract  

Activities of research institutes of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences were assessed multidimensionally. Taking into accountgoals and tasks of the institutes,weighted scientometric indicators were suggested. The weights of the individual indexes weredistributed among the institutes by the values of their indicators. The sum of the individual weighted scores representing special aspects of the total activity yields aGeneral Performance Index (GPI) which, together with a thorough peer review, may be used for distributing grants.

Abstract  

This study does a bibliometric analysis based on keywords of conference proceedings. Scientometric investigations of conference proceedings are a new and innovative, not very common approach. The studies and papers presented may be interpreted as early indicators of scientific development. The Academy of International Business (AIB) was chosen for being the leading organization for studies in international business with contributions covering a 3-year period (2006–2008). The study presents the general structure of current scholarly interest in international business studies, clusters the keywords and reflects details on the focused research areas of the papers analyzed. The bibliometric analysis indicates three clusters: the core, the semi-periphery and the periphery. The five most occurring keywords were found to be multinational enterprise, emerging markets, foreign direct investment, internationalization and knowledge management in descending order. The analyses focus on concepts building the core (in total ten keywords), the semi-periphery which is coined by performance and related topics (60 keywords) and the periphery of the studies with governance and specific facets of it (199 keywords).

His life-style: Architect. Miklós Ybl, the confidant of the Academy

Einleitung zu der wissenschaftlichen Konferenz und der Kabinettausstellung in der Kunstsammlung der Akademie anlässlich des 200. Geburtstages von Miklós Ybl, gehalten am 8. April 2014

This introduction is the edited version of the opening speech delivered at the scientific conference and exhibition commemorating the bicentenary of Miklós Ybl’s birth (1814–1891). As the first representative of the professional architect emancipated from the guild organization, Ybl still enjoys a quasi symbolic prestige in the Hungarian architectural community. Instead of becoming a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, he owed his success and great influence — upon determining the stylistic character of the Hungarian capital, Budapest from 1873, for example — to the confidence placed in him by the liberal aristocrats who played a leading role in the management of the scholarly institution. Since in the early 20th century the historicism of renaissance inspiration which he represented was discarded as eclectic academism, and in the decades of socialist realism the style was condemned for class-struggle reasons, it was only in the past two or three decades that the positive evaluation of the principle of style choice and pluralism of styles could gain ground. The paper stresses the continuity of neo-classicism and historicism reviving the gothic and the Romanesque styles as well as the neorenaissance mode in the tradition of the academic theory of architecture. It does not deny the importance of function but reckons with an iconological interpretation of function which is contradictory to 20th century functionalism.

In Hungary there are borehole tiltmeters used for monitoring tectonic movements and landslides. These investigations need long time continuous measurements. The Model 722A tiltmeters of Applied Geomechanics Inc. are fastened to the ground by tamped sand in the borehole.  In some cases the boreholes become untight  and it was thought that in this case the ground water seeping into the borehole could loosen the tamped sand causing a bad coupling between the tiltmeter and the ground. It was proved by laboratory test that the ground water and the variation of its level does not change the coupling of the instrument to the ground. In this paper the description of the test made at the Geodetic and Geophysical Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the results of the measurements are given.
