100. Anniversary

UNESCO has long been taking part in commemorating the anniversaries of historical events and outstanding personalities. The national committees of the organisation may make such proposals each year. Headed by former President József Hámori and current President Miklós Réthelyi, the Hungarian National Committee initiated a Szentágothai Memorial Year, a proposal supported by the Jury of Experts and the Executional Council and finally was accepted by UNESCO's General Assembly.

As decided by the General Assembly of UNESCO, the year 2012 is to be dedicated to honour the 100th birthday of János Szentágothai, a former president of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and a groundbreaker in his field. According to Ambassador Katalin Bogyay, the memorial year provides a unique opportunity to showcase the achievements of Hungarian science and Hungarian culture in general to a wider audience through the legacy of the great Hungarian scientist.
