As part of the overall industrialization of Venezuela, President Nicolás Maduro Moros in 2015 announced 50 000 university scholarships ( Spanish laguage Venezuelan government site) to study abroad. These processes are ﬁnanced by the world’s largest (Venezuelan) oil reserves which surpass that of Saudi Arabia.
The Hungarian Francisco de Miranda Scientiﬁc Institute of Budapest is a Hungarian entity , the result of a bilateral agreement, with a consortium of Venezuelan state universities spearheaded by the State Polytechnic University of Puerto Cabello IUTPC (Spanish language Venezuelan government link) , located on the postcard-picture-perfect shore of the Carribean Sea in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and will channel the entire Hungarian university educational oﬀering. During the first two years, the state IUTPC University alone plans to send to Hungary 550 students in engineering fields related to green energy, the automotive industry, and tourism. Two hundred and fifty students would be coming the first year.
Please see the English language Pan-Latin American TeleSUR global TV Channel interview below left on the Hungarian Miranda Institute and read about it on TeleSUR page here. TeleSUR which broadcasts over satellite in English, Spanish, Portuguese on 5 continents to over 2 Billion people, is Latin America’s answer to CNN.
Gradually the entire Hungarian university educational oﬀering will be channeled linked but not restricted to, large scale Hungarian solar photovoltaic technology transfer with Chinese State guarantees along with the transfer of the mobile containerized water potabilization technology of the Hungarian State owned Budapest Waterworks *as reported in English by The Government of The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.* Other Hungarian advanced technologies will also be transferred as well.
The most important technology to be transferred is solar photovoltaics developed by GreenSolar, a 100% Chinese state owned-ﬁrm located in Budapest, Hungary. They have a production line which will be up and running in world record time, just 9 months. They produce solar photovoltaic modules using ordinary window glass and simple industrial gases readily available in Venezuela. It is a completely tropicalised technology which does not need clean lab surroundings. The 100% owner of this GreenSolar brand technology is the same Chinese state-owned entity called Beijing Sevenstar Electronics which provides technology for Haier, LG, and Samsung (among others) which have joint projects with the Bolivarian Government of Venezuela. They also have the technology to store energy at night, using vanadium-redox regenerative batteries which have inﬁnite life (Venezuela produces large quantities of vanadium slag by burning oil rich in vanadium at its thermal power plants). See below the comparative costs and a Spanish language video on Chinese-Hungarian solar photovoltaic technology.

Training Venezuelan technical and scientiﬁc experts in Hungary: Currently, there are about 30 000 (according to Hungarian Government figures), foreign students studying at Hungarian universities . Many of them come from the most developed countries in the world, such as Germany, Japan, USA, and China, among others. Not so long ago over 2 000 of students came from Brazil, and were sent to Hungary by Madame President Dilma Rousseﬀ through the Brazilian Federal Government Scholarship Program (link in English).
The Hungarian technology transfer along with Hungarian Nobel Prize Winners & technological developments has already been repeatedly aired at TeleSur. The latter is the global public TV network of the alliance of Latin American states and one of the largest in the world, which broadcasts in English, Spanish and Portuguese (with plans to soon air in French and Mandarin Chinese) to a global audience of over a billion people on ﬁve continents (see video below left and the TeleSur coverage map below right).
In addition The IUTPC will set up a massive live Spanish language study program through web camera to decrease the linguistic deﬁcit of Hungary. Hungary is in the last place within Europe in speaking foreign languages and this impacts its GDP negatively in the era of total globalization. The Hungarian language of Asian tribal origins bears no resemblance with any other European language (it even has its own tribal alphabet) and the country has been isolated for over half a century during the cold war.
Thanks to the adoption in Hungary in 1825 by Count István Széchenyi of the ideas of Simon Bolivar and that of his master Simon Rodríguez on the deelitisation and massification of education, the crucial technologies of mankind of the past two hundred years, like electrical generation, the computer, nuclear generation and more have been invented by Hungarians. This fact is silenced by the Western World. The USA and Western European powers up to this day insinuate the falsehood that these are their inventions.
With over 28 Hungarian Nobel laureates to its credit, Hungary has the most Nobel laureates per capita in the world, with 15 actually born in Hungary !
Hungary has some of the oldest universities in the world and the oldest technical university in the world. Hungary has the highest per capita concentration of Nobel laureates on the entire planet. There are 15 who were born in Hungary, and the total number is over 28 counting those born abroad to Hungarian parents. It is no exaggeration to say that technologically speaking the past 200 years have been heavily inﬂuenced by Hungary (partial video here).Our lives would not be the same without Hungarian contributions to the invention of electrical generation, the ﬁrst electrical car, the nationwide electrical systems needed to electrify a country (technology used by the North American George Westinghouse), the ﬁrst electrical train (even Nicolas Tesla was partially Hungarian and studied in Budapest), the electric meter, the Wolfram ﬁlament light bulb, the neon tube, scuba diving gear, the three-phase electrical train, the electric turbo generator, the carburetor, Ford's Model T, Volkswagen's Beetle(mass produced under the Standard brand before it was stolen), jet propulsion, the ﬁrst helicopter, the rigid airship (bought by Zeppelin) sound ﬁlm, the ﬁrst TV, color TV nuclear energy generation, nuclear fusion, the major contributions to the atom bomb, H bomb, the computer, basic programming, and the list could go on endlessly. (See partial listing here.) Even Hollywood was mainly created by Hungarians!
The Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the highest academic authority of the nation, has the most Nobel Lauretates per capita in the world, was founded in 1825 (historical photograph) by Count István Széchenyi who based his revolutionary ideas on those of Simon Bolivar. The Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1983 established The Simon Bolivar Memorial Comission of Hungary.
Hungary is proud of its formidable talents which include the Venezuelan Nelson Merentes Díaz, President of The Central Bank of Venezuela who obtained a Ph. D. in mathematics with the highest "summa cum laude" distinction in Budapest, Hungary.
In this video beginning at 0:12 min. Dr. Merentes starts speaking in Hungarian !
In this video, Dr. Merentes praises the incredibly high cultural, technological and scientific development level of Hungary, the reason behind his personal and professional growth.
The President of the Central Bank of Venezuela Dr. Nelson Merentes Díaz is one of the very few foreigners who managed to get a Ph.D. in Mathematics in Hungary at the University of Budapest, with the highest “summa cum laude” distinction, a feat only a small number of Hungarians ever achieve due to the extremely high educational standards. Some of the most important developments in the ﬁeld of mathematics - such as non-Euclidean geometry have been developed in Hungary.
Dr. Nelson Merentes Díaz started to speak in Hungarian during one of his TV interviews (above right, beginning 0:12 min.) because the reporter had a Hungarian surname, although unlike Merentes, could not actually speak Hungarian. During his many TV interviews Merentes has always expressed his eternal gratitude to Hungary and given accolades to the "incredibly" high level Hungarian culture and proudly announced that he considers Hungary his second homeland. In the video above right, Dr. Merentes also speaks about the incredibly high cultural, technological and scientific development level of Hungary, and that his training there contributed the most to his personal and professional growth.
Dr. Nelson Merentes Díaz is the main economic and ﬁnancial expert behind the improved quality of life of Venezuelans, a fact recognized by the United Nations and even published by the neoliberal Bloomberg News Agency.
Concerning famous Hungarian mathematicians, another example is the brilliant “ Charles" (Károly) Simonyi, who became the right hand of Bill Gates the salesman, and a major architect of the success of Microsoft. Born and raised in Hungary. Károly Simonyi is the only two-time space tourist in the world. During one of his space voyages on board of Russia’s Soyuz spacecraft, he thanked the eminent Hungarian mathematician and Member of The General Assembly of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Prof. Emeritus Dr. Gyula J. Obádovics for writing the self-help book entitled Mathematics in 1958 (download the Hungarian version of the book here) to which Simonyi credits his entire career and the success of Microsoft . Generations have learned from the Hungarian and German language versions of this book in Europe .
The plans are not only to translate this book into Spanish and include it in the Venezuelan curriculum, but to translate it into English, French, Portuguese, and Dutch as well, covering all the major national languages spoken in the Americas, and make the different language versions freely downloadable to the beneﬁt of humanity.
