Mission and Vision

Our mission is to act as catalyst of societal progress through a twofold approach: as a centre of exemplary research, social action and entrepreneurial initiatives, and by offering an internationally recognised education programme designed to nurture a community of future leaders within Hungary.

We have the vision of Hungary transforming into a country known for pioneering solutions to the principal challenges of the 21st century.

Our values

  • The Pursuit of the Common Good

The Milestone Institute believes in a progressive society based on equal opportunities where the Sensus Communis is defined by openness to otherness, accountability and solidarity.

  • Leadership through Excellence, Humility and Integrity

The Milestone Institute seeks to inspire the members of its community to lead by example, through intellectual rigour, uninhibited imagination, personal integrity and humility in all manner of conduct.

  • Borders are there to be Crossed

The Milestone Institute aims to foster local dialogue where a global monologue has prevailed, and global outreach where parochialism has set root, to work towards a sustainable ecosystem that brings 21st century society in harmony with its natural environment.

  • Creativity and Innovation

The Milestone Institute’s ambition is to be a node of creativity and innovation to unfold synergies between the Sciences and the Arts.

  • Rooting the Future in Tradition

In its endeavour to build the path towards the future, the Milestone Institute intends to be in continuity with the finest traditions of intellectual thought.

  • Humor and Mischief

For the Milestone Institute, playfulness, humour and mischief are the fundamental qualities that guard against self-righteousness.
