INDIANAPOLIS -

Another international connection for Indiana is in the works. Governor Eric Holcomb has signed a cooperative agreement with the minister of foreign affairs and trade in Hungary supporting an expanded partnership between the University of Notre Dame and Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest.

The partnership will see the College of Engineering at Notre Dame develop new technology faculty and doctoral programs in chemical and mechanical engineering at Pázmány Péter Catholic University. At the same time, select courses from Pázmány Péter will be made available to students at Notre Dame.

Holcomb's office says the details of the cooperative agreement were finalized earlier this year. The governor signed the agreement Wednesday along with Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó. The collaboration is set to kick off next year.

"This new collaboration between Notre Dame and Pázmány Péter is one more way we’re connecting Indiana with the global economy and bringing the world back home to Indiana," Holcomb said. "These are exactly the kinds of partnerships that will create more opportunities for business investment down the road."

Holcomb's office says the partnership builds on the work accomplished during the governor's trade mission to Hungary in June 2017.
