Our institution is a leading centre of Hungarian economic and regional research. We operate as an independent research community characterized by intellectual curiosity, the pursuit of a deeper perception of the world and of impartial treatment of facts. Our mission is to gain a better understanding of economic, social and spatial processes in Hungary and elsewhere through state-of-the-art scientific analysis which, in turn, can contribute to policy decisions in an innovative way. We strive for achieving outstanding research results and for further improving our position as an internationally recognized centre of excellence. It is an essential pillar of our policy that the research fellows of the Centre rigorously adhere to ethical principles of scientific work.
