Milestone Knowledge Port gathers, produces, and applies national and international knowledge. The local channelling of this knowledge is facilitated by programmes, projects, and other forms of cooperation realised by the diverse community of the Port, made up of Milestone alumni, members of the Hungarian diaspora, and representatives of national and international scientific, economic, and cultural life. Our goal is to facilitate that alumni and members of the Hungarian diaspora return home from abroad, and use their knowledge and experience to benefit the country. Knowledge Port is the site of meetings and exchanges of ideas. It catalyses innovation and positive change, enabling Hungary to provide as prepared as possible responses to the challenges of the 21st century.
We believe in a Hungary where knowledge and talent serve as the grounds of advancement both on the level of the individual and on the level of society. We position Knowledge Port to be a hub through which international knowledge and experience flows into the country, interacts with local knowledge and practice, and generates innovation and change on the local and global levels. We would like Knowledge Port to be the starting point of the way Hungary repositions herself in the 21st century.
As part of realising our mission, in March 2022 we launched our event series: lectures, roundtable discussions, cultural programs, and community events will take place at the home of Milestone Institute in Wesselényi Street. We also organise exclusive events aimed at our alumni, which, apart from focusing on the present and future possibilities of the job market, also facilitate the homecoming of Hungarian students studying abroad and of the broader diaspora. As we consider it important to contribute to the intellectual and cultural life of the district housing our institute and Budapest, we organise programmes open to the general public several times a year.
