Together at the University - Celebration of the Corvinus Science Shop

Date: 20 November 2019, 4:00-6:00 pm
Venue: Corvinus University of Budapest, Main Building, Ground Floor, Lecture Room III. (1093 Budapest, Fővám tér 8.)

Since its establishment in May 2017, the Corvinus Science Shop has become an integral part of the university as an increasingly well-known and accepted organization. We are excited about the future, and we continue to work to connect the civil society organisations and social entrepreneurships with actors of education and research to create common knowledge.

To celebrate this, we are organsiing our next event, "Together at University - Celebration of the Corvinus Science Shop" on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm in BCE Main Building III (1093 Budapest, Fővám tér 8.).

In the first part of the event, with the help of invited speakers and organisations, in a workshop we will take a look at the Science Shop's two-year operation and impact. Then, in the second half of the event, we will hold an awards ceremony with the participation of the faculty's Dean, where we will present the Student, Teacher and Civil Awards. We will aslo announce the call for next year's awards.

Business Education with a Civil Parner - Stúdió K Színház - Research Week June 2018

Képtalálat a következőre: „stúdió k logó színház” 

Workshop with the Studio K Theatre

Time: June 5. 2018, 14:00-15:45

Venue: room C.203 

OrganisersMartoni András, Matolay Réka, Gáspár JuditToarniczky Andrea, Pataki György 

How can a good educational or research project with a civil society organisation in business education be realised? What can we teach through questions of our civil partners to our students?

In the frame of the workshop we explore the case of the Studio K Theatre, how the university's education programme can be enriched by living cases, real-life projects with meaningful social impact. 

After we get to know the theatre's work and dilemmas about strategy, business modelling, marketing and communication we are going to look for points of collaboration, forming their challenges into research and teaching projects.

8th Living Knowledge Conference

Enriching Science and Community Engagement
30th May – 1st June 2018, Budapest, Hungary

We are pleased to invite you to the 8th Living Knowledge Conference that focuses on science-society interactions: the diversity of ways how societal issues can be included in and interwoven with the activities of education and research. The event is organised by the Corvinus University of Budapest in partnership with the Living Knowledge Network, the Environmental Social Science Research Group and the University of Szeged.

In order to build on and enhance the public engagement in research practices, the conference would like to bring together the existing networks of action research and action learning, citizen science, community-based research, engaged scholarship, open science, science shops, participatory action research, participatory governance, RRI (responsible research and innovation), and social innovation.

Participants are invited to critically reflect on public engagement challenges, on the complex impacts of their science-society partnerships, on social acceptance of research and innovation processes. We aim at an un-conference setting that allows for greater networking among academics and practitioners, researchers and civil society organisations.

The programme of the conference is available here.


Living Knowledge Summer School

28th-29th May, Budapest, Hungary

We invited


  • PhD students and early-stage researchers,
  • practitioners who work in academic settings,
  • practitioners who work at civil society organisations,


who are interested in


  • making research more meaningful by working with and for communities,
  • research methods, educational concepts and good practices that deconstruct barriers between science and society,
  • learning about the concepts and practices of science shop, participatory research, responsible research and innovation (RRI)


to be part of the LK8 Summer School. The aim of the event is to initiate communication between researchers and practitioners, to explore and reflect on our understanding of socially useful knowledge – the characteristics of good knowledge and ways of knowledge production, which can lead to meaningful social changes.

Researcher and practitioner participants will be involved in discussions about the social impact and quality of knowledge facilitated by experts of these fields. Presentations, discussions, knowledge sharing and self-reflection will all serve the purpose to reveal the characteristics of socially useful knowledge.

The summer school provides 4 ETCS credits for PhD students, with two parallel tracks in the topics of Participatory Action Research (PAR) and Science Shops facilitated by experienced tutors throughout the summer school

Encounters for Open Science - Science Shop Workshop&Brunch



Encounters for Open Science

Workshop and Brunch

Time: November 17. 2018, 9:00-11:00

Venue: CUB building E, Lecture Room III.

Corvinus Science Shop came to life to promote the concept of open and inclusive university, the deepening of the connection of science and society. The aim of this "shop" is to channel questions of the civil society directly into education and research activities of the university, to build a bridge between academia and society. This enables the common learning of all stakeholders (civil society organisations, teachers, researchers, students).

The event on the Day of Science aims to open up the gate of the university and demonstrate how a cooperative learning process can be realised. We intend to introduce the theoretical background behind the concept and show good practices with the help of our guests which can be examples of education and research processes based on teacher-student-society collaboration.

Venue: room C.203

Organisers: Matolay Réka, Gáspár Judit, Toarniczky Andrea, Kiss Gabriella, Pataki György

The Corvinus Science Shop introduces itself! It is an institution of the Corvinus Business School that enriches the faculty's education and research topics with questions of the civil society. It is a "shop" where academic colleagues (researchers, lecturers, students) can find topics, cases and partners while civil society organisations (CSOs) can acquire answers and solutions for their questions and challenges. The demand comes from CSOs' problems and matters, the supply are the knowledge creation processes (research, education) of our university. Our collaboration improves education, research, inclusion and engagement for further development, has an indirect and measurable social impact. 

During the workshop we will talk about:


  • methodology background of education and research with the science shop
  • why we do it: experiences of the Science Shop Team
  • our toolkit: how can the science shop improve our practices
