Because of the reconstruction works started in the building of the Corvinus University, the venue of the ICHST 2009 congress has been moved to the opposite side of the Danube river to the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.

Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME)

Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) was founded in 1782 (it is one of the oldest technological institutions in the world). It was the first institution in Europe to train engineers at university level. BME, a prestigious Hungarian higher education institute is committed to differentiated, multilevel, high-standard education. Teaching work is founded on intensive basic training, research, development and innovation, and scientific qualification in technical and natural sciences and in certain fields of economic and social sciences. The main building of the University built in classical style provides an unique environment for the Congress.
