Owing to the European Union’s grant of almost one and a half billion HUF, the University may realise developments in four areas.

Under the Academy subproject, digital learning materials will be produced for key subjects at the Corvinus, and the University will develop new graduate and postgraduate programmes related to data science and artificial intelligence. Under the Ménesi Campus subproject, the digital and education infrastructure of the new Campus of the Corvinus at Ménesi út will be established, focusing on practice and innovation orientation and sustainability.

The support provided to the IT subproject will allow the University to make the auditoriums and education spaces of the Corvinus fully suitable for hybrid and digital education, with an infrastructure of a closed system. In addition, the University will launch a digital instrument leasing programme for students in need. In the Digitalisation subproject, the University may improve educational excellence and the system managing education data and supporting the academic administration.

‘The developments to be completed at University will serve both the students and the teachers. As a result of the project, the community of the Corvinus will be able to enjoy an education offer that relies on high-level infrastructure and modern supporting systems, and is in up-to-date connection with the challenges of digitalisation. These developments will take the Corvinus closer to the achievement of its strategic objectives, namely that it should become the leading institution in Central Europe in the fields of economic and social sciences by 2030, in the international higher education rankings. – pointed out Dr. Réka Franciska Vas, Vice Rector for Education at the Corvinus

The project running until the end of April 2026 will be implemented from the RRF-2.1.2-21 Infrastructure and skills development for practice-oriented higher education call for applications included in the European recovery plan of the EU. These EU support options facilitate reforms and investments in the Member States. Our objective is to mitigate the social and economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, and to make European economies and societies more sustainable and resilient, and to prepare them for the green and digital transition.
