The Databank of the Research Centre for Economic and Regional Studies, Hungarian Academy of Sciences was created with the aim to support empirical research, in particular studies using micro level data.



The Horizon 2020 Twinning project EdEN (2016-2018) marks the start of an enhanced cooperation in the field of education economics between three top ranked economics of education research groups in EU-15 countries – KU Leuven, U Maastricht and Politecnico di Milano – and the CERSHAS. The proposed project focuses on three clusters of methodologies – program evaluation, structural modeling and efficiency analysis – and fosters cooperation between the institutions along more specific research lines within these clusters.
Balázs Lengyel, research fellow at the Centre for Economic and Regional Studies of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences won the award of the Rosztoczy Foundation to conduct post-doctoral research work at the MIT Human Mobility and Networks Research Lab in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Marta Gonzalez.
