CEU’s Borderless Knowledge project, launched in 2019 and housed now at the CEU Democracy Institute, is based on the principle that knowledge belongs to everyone, that scientific breakthroughs and the latest research aimed at solving societal problems should not just be available to the public but should initiate a debate.

In the open lecture series CEU professors, leading Hungarian experts and well-known public figures discuss exciting recent scientific findings and their direct impact on our everyday lives. Most lectures are held in Hungarian, with simultaneous English translation provided.
