The storyline, one can assemble based on the content of this website, is revealing interesting details not only of institutional research, events, colleagues , but also reflects the different periods of Hungarian regional and science policy, the specific situation of a provincial research institute, its regional embeddedness and its efforts for catching up with the world of international science.

Success brought motivation and the difficulties encountered provided sufficient experience to enable the researchers' team now operating under the name of Transdanubian Research Department to use the celebration for plannnig for the future as well.

Working at the institute for 35 years, as a "veteran," I further success to the team and a useful browsing to the reader.
