NETI lab


Our Research Group deals with the socio-economic effects of networks, innovation and technology. We primarily conduct empirical network analysis in connection with the labor market, innovation, supplier-customer networks, as well as relationships within organizations, intra-city mobility and scientific relationships (science of science).

Horizon Europe urban mobility – research project

The objective of this project is to examine the phenomenon of intra-city mobility and the associated inequalities. In particular, the project will investigate the following aspects:

(1) How mobility and intra-city mixing have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

(2) The role of complex services in relation to visits.

(3) The intra-city connectivity and separation of groups along major roads.

(4) The possibilities and limitations of the 15-minute city concept.

The data used in this study is derived from GPS aggregator data, which monitors the movement of people (mobile devices) within Budapest. It can be observed that central locations in the city typically provide complex services, which attract a diverse range of visitors.
