Institute of Sustainable Development
Éva Hideg worked for the Corvinus University of Budapest and its legal predecessors for 30 years, from 1990, but she still actively participates in the life of her department – she delivers lessons, publishes papers with young colleagues – as she finds the mentoring of the young generation important. As a pioneer of future research in Hungary, she worked out the paradigms of this discipline, developed integrated future research and interactive foresight, adopted the Horizon Scanning procedure, and connected future research and the general evolution theory. In 1974-1990, she was a research fellow of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, a candidate of economic science from 1988, an associate professor in 1990-2014, the doctor of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences from 2012, habilitated doctor from 2013, and university professor since 2014. From 1995 to 2010, she joined the work of the National Scientific Research Programmes at several points, among others as the president of the College for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences, the jury of the Economics-Future Research-Statistics, and the jury of the Economics-Future Research. From 2009, she was a supervisor in the Doctoral School of Economics and Business Informatics, and until 2014, she was a member of the Corvinus International University Research Centre. Since 2012, she has been a member of the European Journal of Futures Research Academic Board. Since 2018, she has been the co-president of the Scientific Committee on Statistics and Future Research of the MTA, and since 2019, she has been a non-academic general meeting representative of the MTA. Her activities have been recognised with a number of prizes, awards and scholarships.
