Welcome to this week’s Humans of the Hub post! This weeks’ innovator is Árpád Rózsás!
Árpád is a founding member of PNGK, a member organisation of The Hague Humanity Hub, as well as working for TNO, a Dutch organisation focusing on sustainable innovations.
Árpád is a civil engineer by background, but many of his projects are far from civil engineering. PNGK is a tech start-up currently testing how a machine translation engine, which was developed together with Translators without Borders and Prompsit, can help human translators to aid migration services.
Árpád co-founded PNGK last year, intent on utilising his skillset for good, and make an impact in humanitarian action and sustainable development.
“The main factor is the feeling of responsibility to devote my time and effort to problems which I consider urgent and pressing.”
PNGK was launched last year, and Árpád was even present for the grand opening of the Humanity Hub! Through initiatives such as The Humanitarian Action Challenge, co-organised by the Hub, PNGK not only won in all three challenges, but were also able to form valuable connections.
“The challenge taught us how to work on project in the humanitarian sector and provided us all the help to work on real issues; without doubt it gave a boost to PNGK”
“I can confidently say that if it was not for The Hague and the Humanity Hub, then PNGK wouldn’t be where it is today.”
