Five Hungarian researchers, including academics and doctors from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences have been selected as members of the Academia Europaea.

Founded in 1988, Academia Europaea is a pan-European Academy of Humanities, Letters, Law, and Sciences that encompasses all fields of scholarly inquiry. The newly elected Hungarian members of the London-based institution are Ákos Bertalan Apatóczky (sinology, Mongol studies, historical linguistics – Károli University Budapest, Institute of Oriental Languages and Cultures); László Péter Biró (nanoscience – Hungarian Academy of Sciences); Balázs Győrffy (oncology, bioinformatics, cancer biomarkers – Semmelweis University); Miklós Kellermayer (single-molecule biophysics – University of Pécs); and András Kornai (linguistic studies – Hungarian Academy of Sciences Computer Science Research Institute).

The election procedure for new members is a multistage process and the Council of the institution decides ultimately on who receives the nomination.

Currently, the Academia Europaea has around 4,000 members, who are all citizens of European countries. The 22 sections of Academia Europaea comprise natural sciences, life sciences, humanities and social sciences.

The main aim of the institution is to share and promote the results of European research with the public, to support interdisciplinary and international research projects, and to draw public attention to the importance of scientific results.
