Our research teams work on R&D projects with key players in the Hungarian economy. There are currently more than 60 research groups at BBS and the Research Fund grant scheme funded 7 research projects at the University in 2019. Reflecting on the strategic areas of BBS, we have established four Centres of Excellence at the University focusing on the four main areas of our applied research activities. The Centres of Excellence are key players in their respective fields of activity in Hungary, play an important role in the relationship between higher education and businesses and carry out high quality applied scientific research relevant to practice, involving business partners and students.
