The Association is a scientific and cultural organisation of the research fellows of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. It has contact with the Foundation, the Humboldt Clubs worldwide and research fellows working on different scientific fields. The Association organizes assemblies, meetings, scientific workshops and conferences, sends delagates to other Humboldt meetings, helps German researchers’ visits in Hungary, and supports the foundation and activities of local Humboldt Clubs. The Association established the Foundation of the Hungarian Humboldt Fellows in order to support the professional activities of the Association and its members.
