Corvinus University of Budapest has initiated a partnership with some of the top universities and most prominent faculties of business and economics in the Central European region, aiming to strengthen educational and research cooperation between the institutions; thereby making Central European educational innovations and economic or social science-related research more visible at the international level.
On Friday, December 3, the Memorandum of Understanding on the establishment of the Central European Network of Universities (CENU) was signed at Corvinus by representatives of the University of Economics in Bratislava (EUBA), SGH Warsaw School of Economics, the Faculty of Economics & Business of the University of Zagreb (EFZG), and Corvinus University of Budapest.
The signing of the document was followed by an international conference, Global Challenges – Central European Responses: Digital Economy, Business and Society, where researchers and PhD candidates from the four Central European Universities held lectures. According to plans, the international conference will be held annually, hosted by different partner institutions each year, tackling current themes relevant to the Central European region. The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding by the four Central European Universities will expectedly be followed by the adoption of the common Charter on the operation of the Central European Network of Universities, the launching of specific joint projects, and the joining of other institutions in 2022 from the Central European region.
