Comparative Analyses of European Identities in Business and Every-Day Behaviour

It aims at a comparative analysis of European identities in business and everyday behaviour.

The aim of the project is to help these students identify the similarities and appreciate the differences in national and European identities, and to observe the behaviours in which these identities are manifest in the countries of the participating institutions. As a result of the research carried out, students learn to differentiate between objective observation and subjective opinions, and they also learn to tell the difference between objective data and stereotypes. As part of the project, students will get to know the culture of the countries of the participating institutions and come to understand the significance of the observed behaviours in the development of the European identities in the participating countries.

Improving the quality of innovative higher education in the field of consumer awareness.

The starting point for the application was a study on consumer rights, which demonstrated the need for consumer protection professionals in the European Union. It also concludes that the task of higher education is to provide appropriate training for these professionals at European level. Effective and high-quality training of such professionals can only be achieved through international cooperation. As a result, the main objective of the project is to create a framework for consumer specialist knowledge transfer through creating an interactive educative platform with MOOC on consumer awareness.

INtergenerational Succession in SMEs' Transition

Problems of generational change in the management of family businesses.

Preliminary studies by BBS have shown that while theoretical research on generational change is rich in results, few trainings has targeted the field as a priority. It is therefore obvious that the main goal of the project, after the initial comparative research on the partner countries, is to develop a curriculum based on this research, the result of which will help to lead the generational change in terms of both ownership and management transfer. As part of the curriculum, generic change, general strategic, legal and financial, social and cultural, and finally mentoring issues appear in a modular form.

Project duration: 2014-2016

Project duration: 2020-2023

COMpliance of acadeMIc acTiviTies with forEign trade

The project fits in with the BGE's strategic pillars of partnership with business on the one hand, and the applied sciences for economic development objective on the other, by introducing a new topic in international higher education cooperation, such as "deemed export", which also have ethical implications.

The freedom of international flows of goods and services is not unlimited; it exists only in strict compliance with the rules laid down in international conventions that ensure export controls. EU regulations also cover academic activities, in particular information and publications resulting from research and development, teaching materials, university-industry relations and international university cooperation. Academia's relationship with export controls is complex and specific. This can be captured in the fact that while the primary purpose of higher education is the generation and public sharing of knowledge, this principle may conflict with existing EU (Hungarian and international) regulations.

Project duration: 2022-2024

LEaring And Development in micro- and small enterprises

The project's rationale is based on the recognition that training and development (for both managers and employees) is a key factor in the successful adaptation of businesses. Larger enterprises have relatively more resources available to develop the competences of their employees (and managers), but this is far from being the case for small enterprises (10-49 employees) and even more so for micro (0-9 employees) enterprises. Based on the previous educational and research experiences of the partners involved in the project, the aim of the project is to develop content for this target group that would both fit real training and development needs and practices and contribute to the development of these practices.

Project duration: 2021-2024

BusinESs PresentatiOn sKills for Employability Fostering Digital Business Presentation Skills To Enhance Employability In The European Labour Market

The project aims to develop business skills in a digital environment through international higher education cooperation and the active involvement of the employer sector. For several years now, KKK (the Faculty of International Management and Business) has successfully run double degree programmes, whereby students of the Bachelor of International Management in English have the opportunity to benefit from the Erasmus student mobility grant by spending a full academic year (2 semesters) at a partner institution. The project will build on existing and ongoing double degree partnerships and the results of the call activities will be used directly within the double degree programme and indirectly (through dissemination activities) in other training courses.

Project duration: 2021-2023

SME Joint Ventures in V4 countries to strengthen SMEs through supporting innovation in education


Within the V4 Group, the economic/trade/investment relations are weak, and there are few signs of their strengthening, this fact is especially true for SME cooperation. V4 economies are dependent on foreign investors and foreign-owned banks and controlled by headquarters of transnational enterprises. In various key institutional dimensions, cooperation is poor.

The primary objective of the project is to strengthen the joint mutual representation of the V4 economies through educational development. Participating students will be able to launch new SME businesses within V4. The objective project goal is to strengthen the cooperation among the participating universities’ students in the field of profound understanding of different cultures, technological, and regional economic policies. Our network development aims to strengthen the SME sector innovation.


Implementation period: 01/10/2022–28/02/2024
