The Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Central European University (CEU), located in Budapest, signed a cooperation agreement on Tuesday, CEU announced on its website. The agreement was signed by President Prof. Herrmann, leading a delegation from TUM to CEU, and CEU Rector Michael Ignatieff. "The parties understand that the offer of the Bavarian government to support TUM's engagement in Budapest is conditional on the ability of CEU to operate freely as a US-degree granting institution in Hungary," the announcement said. "In this light, both parties call on the Hungarian government to provide CEU with the legal guarantees that would make it possible to inaugurate this new chapter in Hungarian and Bavarian academic and scientific cooperation," CEU added.
