Centre for Empirical Social Research

The Centre for Empirical Social Research (CESR) is part of the Institute of Sociology and Social Policy at the Corvinus University of Budapest. It coordinates theoretically based empirical research primarily in the field of economic sociology, elite studies, information society and European integration.

Among the applied methods one can find the design and analysis of small surveys and large representative polls, content analysis, experiment, interview, focus group, deliberative poll, civic discussion and policy Delphi.

The CESR coordinated many research projects in the above-mentioned areas, that is, the ‘Hungarian Enterprise Panel Survey’  ‘The Emerging Elites’, ‘Entrepreneurship in Eastern Europe’, ‘Uncertainty and Insecurity in Europe’, ‘Information Society and Local Community’, ‘Social Impacts of ICT', SIBIS’, ‘eInclusion’, ‘ICT4All’ ,‘IntUne’ and the "Innovative Social Policies for Inclusive and Resilient Labour Markets in Europe" (INSPIRES) FP7 research programme (www.inspires-research.eu).
