Hungarian Space Office (HSO)
The Government of Hungary established the Hungarian Space Office in January 1992. As the Minister for National Development, Ms. Zsuzsa Németh has been supervising Hungary’s space activities since mid 2011.
The Hungarian Space Board (HSB), headed by dr. Kálmán Kovács (former Minister for Informatics and Communications), helps the work of the Minister in strategic cases.
The Hungarian Space Office (HSO) manages, coordinates and represents the Hungarian space activities. Since 1997 the director of the HSO has been dr. Előd Both. In 2010 the Hungarian Space Office – keeping its name, image and independence in external relations – was administratively integrated into the body of the Ministry of National Development.
