Greetings from Dr Tamara Keszey
A new academic year always opens us a new chapter in our research work as well. After an intense, vivid research life in the first half of 2022, returning from online to offline through many research events, we are ahead of a similarly active and fruitful period in terms of research activities.
First of all, I would like to congratulate on Corvinus researchers’ continuous high performance. The number of quality publications shows an increasing trend, which is our shared success. At the same time, we are honoured to have colleagues in our community, who gained international research grants.
We are proud to inform you that the University has won a 2,5 million EUR grant under Horizon Europe to set up and run a new research group from next year. The new research team is called the “Collective Learning Data Lab”, which will conduct data science research led by Professor César Hidalgo (h-index=49 & citation 27,000+) in the following 5 years. The project proposal (named LearnData) was prepared and submitted early this year by László Lőrincz and Balázs Lengyel (CIAS) with the assistance of the Horizon Europe Centre.
Another winning application in the Horizon Europe Program is already under implementation. The main topic of the project called ROBUST is Crisis Governance in Turbulent Times – Mindset, Evidence, Strategies. A team of György Hajnal is participating in this winning international consortium.
The University and the Research Management Office work on several projects, just as we did in the previous academic years, to further exploit our research potential. The Corvinus Omnibus pilot project has been recently launched gaining great popularity. The first wave is now on its way, and the registration for the second wave is already open. Seeing the intense interest and the number of registrations from your side, we are reassured that such initiatives are needed.
The Researchers’ Night on 30 September also hit a new level with its 35 registered programs in total. It also shows us how strong a community we are, and how proud we are of sharing our work with students each other.
I wish you all a fruitful semester and look forward to your future research success and collaborations.

Vice-Rector for Research
