The Corvinus Research Excellence 2024 (CKK24) awards were presented by the University's leaders at a ceremony at Corvinus University of Budapest on 2 May 2024. A total of 111 researchers were recognised for their publication achievements. This year, for the first time, the ERS Publication Award was also presented as a special prize of the CKK.

The Corvinus Research Excellence Award honours the scientific work published by Corvinus faculty members and researchers, making the CKK a means of encouraging and recognising research results that are relevant to the University and outstanding by international standards. Applications for the award, which assesses the scientific work of the previous year, were invited through an open competition.   

This year, 135 applications were submitted in 4 categories, of which 111 were awarded prizes worth nearly HUF 127 million. It is important to note that 28% more applications were received than last year and 22% more applicants were awarded a CKK prize. It is particularly pleasing that the largest increase in the number of applicants was in the junior non-research category. The list of winners by category is available here. 

In his opening speech, Zoltán Oszkár Szántó, Vice Rector for Research, emphasized that the Corvinus Research Excellence Award is the most important tool for stimulating research performance at the University, and the increasing number of applicants and award winners indicates that this incentive is working well. At the same time, he added that the CKK will have to respond to changes in publication and research evaluation practices, and therefore a slight modification of next year’s call for proposals can be expected. 

Corvinus University of Budapest is committed to ensuring that the principles of sustainability are fully integrated into its activities and operations as a priority. In line with the University’s strategy, the University aims to become an international centre of excellence for sustainability by 2030, including by producing scientific results that contribute to solving sustainability challenges. To this end, the “Ethics, Responsibility, Sustainability” (ERS) Publication Excellence Award has been awarded for the first time this year in conjunction with the CKK, with the aim of increasing the number of ERS-related research papers in the long term.  


We congratulate our colleagues and wish them every success in their future endeavours!
