Researchers of the Faculty of Economics are involved with great interest in the study of the socio – economic effects of the climate change, environmental protection, sustainability and the circular economy underlined in shaping the attitudes of – especially young – people, and in the communication of the scientific results.
Along these principles, the Faculty of Business and Economics places great emphasis on research and development and works on innovative solutions that represent development and progress for both students and business partners.
Sustainability Competence Centre Based on Circular Economics: Under the leadership of the Faculty of Business and Economics, three sub-projects are implemented within the main direction of Sustainable Tourism: Tourism all year round – Marketing innovation for the extension of the Lake Balaton season; Sustainable Festivals and Events – Developing Visitor and Organizational Attitudes; Circular economy attitude formation programmes. https://www.gtk.uni-pannon.hu/fenntarthato-turizmus/
Industry 4.0 – Research for sustainable regional industrial development – Industry and digitization in research: Based on technical innovation and applied economic solutions, competitive Industry 4.0 solutions have a social and economic impact at regional and national level through the economic growth they cause. This will improve the life prospects of the Hungarian generations and increase the population retention power of the region. The aim of the coherent system of basic and applied research formulated in the project is to develop the methodology and tools necessary for the “glocal” development of Industry 4.0 solutions.
National Laboratory for Social Innovation: The establishment and operation of the National Laboratory for Social Innovation must be carried out in a widespread cooperation of different parties: scientific institutions, local governments, non-governmental organizations, and economic actors. The initiative can also generate rapid development and achievements in the area of human-centered development and penetration of new technologies in a relatively short period of time. Hungary can become a front-ranker in the area of social innovations.
Sustainable, intelligent and inclusive regional and city models: The general objective of the program is to increase the international embeddedness of the basic research defined in the project in the field of regional and economic sciences through the achievement of high visibility and participation in Horizon 2020 projects and European research networks and research programs, as well as European research sites, on the development side, in a targeted and thematic manner, within the framework of a consortium organized around the development of intelligent systems. With the implementation of the consortium project, the institutions aim to become more active in the field of regional and economic sciences in order to accelerate the deployment of the knowledge-based economy and cooperate with the actors of international research and development programs. The aim of the thematic research project is to increase the potential of participating institutions in the R&D&I theme, whose long-term results will be accelerated in building the knowledge-based economy.
Balaton Tourism Research Institute (BATUKI): The institute was established in 2015 with the mission to be a key player in tourism in the Balaton region as an innovative professional workshop integrating theoretical knowledge and practical experience. The activities of the organisation cover the entire tourism experience chain, from tourism development plans to market research and analysis to monitoring, ie measuring the success and impact of implemented projects. https://www.gtk.uni-pannon.hu/batuki/
Research Centre (of Faculty of Business and Economics): The Research Centre was established with the aim of encouraging researchers of the Faculty of Business and Economics to set up research groups and enhance their research activities, support scientific research, evaluate results, coordinate conference attendance and increase the number of scientific publications. https://www.gtk.uni-pannon.hu/gskk/
