Researchers’ Night at Corvinus University of Budapest – 2022

On the last Friday of September, the University’s campus opens its gates again for those interested in science and research by joining the Researchers’ Night program series.

The Researchers’ Night is a Europe-wide free event series which aims to promote science and research career. Through fun, inspiring lectures and playful programs, all age groups can get acquainted with the plentiful new results of scientific research.
The main objective of the event, initiated by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions of the European Union, is to make researchers’ diverse work attractive to young people, boys and girls alike.

The scientific events offered by Corvinus University of Budapest on the Researchers’ Night are listed under ‘Programme’.

You can read the report on last year’s event here.


Corvinus University joins the event series on 30th September, Friday from 4 to 9 p.m. This year only in-person programs will be organized to ensure that visitors experience the atmosphere of the university on campus.

How to improve the efficiency of Lego injection molding machines? At Corvinus, we’ve analyzed the change-over process of these machines using machine learning to look for efficiency-improving factors. Now, we present our results to the public. We also cover the challenges of measuring change-over efficiency and of the modeling process itself.

Date: 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM and 7 PM – 8 PM
Presenters: Kovács László, Madari Zoltán
Venue: E building 340.

What are the common in the capitalism of Czechia, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland? What exogenous shocks and endogenous factors shape their structures? We explore the similarities and differences between the national economies of Central Europe. In 2018, the Corvinus University of Budapest won a major European Union research grant as a consortium member, within the framework of which several years of cooperation was launched between Corvinus University and – among others – the University College of London, the Charles University in Prague and the Jagellonian University (Krakow). In the program, we present the results of this joint international work – don’t miss it!

Time: 17:00-18:00
Presentation language: English
Speakers: István Kollai, András Tétényi, Gábor Vigvári
Location: E building 399.

We try to highlight the reasons behind the complex crisis in Latin America and giving scenarios for its future. In the last two years the voters of Latin American elections turned to leftist, socialist, sometimes communist parties and politicians with the aim to solve the existential social crisis caused by the COVID-pandemic, the “secondary” effects of the Russian-Ukraine war and bad political management in most of the countries. The most recent election is on the 2nd of October in Brazil, where the controversial incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro faces the former president Inacio Lula da Silva.

Date: 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Presenters: Nagy Sándor Gyula, Lehoczki Barnadett
Venue: E building III.

Ever wondered why you are stuck for hours in front of Netflix? Why are Lime scooters being thrown around? And that the root cause of both is the same? You will learn about a new consumer behaviour that is driving the success of Netflix and Lime Rollers.

Date: 7 PM – 7:30 PM
Presenters: Kisfürjesi Nóra
Venue: E building 309.

FooDization explores how food firms employ digital data to innovate their production process and how cleaner production innovation influences value proposition. Food is essential for life, but its production causes the overexploitation of natural resources. Customers’ awareness of sustainable food production is only poorly growing. Still, the ecosystem is sending explicit signs requiring an urgent shift towards cleaner food production, which also must capture the consumer’s preference. Sustainable economic growth is impossible without significant changes in firms’ and customers’ behaviour. Digital transformation is pivotal to cleaner production. The most helpful for firms is to exploit the digital data generated by digital technologies about using natural resources during food production to reduce environmental impact. Yet, we still lack a clear understanding of how food production firms exploit digital data to foster cleaner production innovations and shape the value proposition.

Date: 8 PM – 8:30 PM
Presenters: Moreno Frau
Venue: E building 309.
