Among other things, WAP and thus the implementation of mobile internet in Hungary, the introduction of IPTV on the cable TV network or mobile TV are connected to its name. Not only did he understand the profession, but he somehow foresaw which technologies and in which direction it was worth moving forward. HTE seeks to encourage innovators of the new generations with an award founded in its honor.

It is extremely honorable that my father’s colleagues remember him with such an award. He knew in his young years that the future would be in infocommunication. He considered it important to bring programming and telecommunications to the university, he was happy to share his ideas with the young people, he loved to think together with them, and he encouraged them to have courage and an innovative approach. I am pleased that the award bearing His name is meant to keep His way of thinking alive. ”

Said Fanni Fekete about the tender created in memory of her father.

The 2020 HTE Fekete László Award was given to Gergő Nagy, who created a White Label smartphone application for personal safety and health care services based on the detection of deep neural network-based movement and fall.
