New Horizon Europe projects to launch

July 2023

The Horizon Europe research project proposal MORES – "Moral emotions in politics: how they unite, how they divide" submitted by CSS (project leader Zsolt Boda) was successful and got funding. CSS will lead the European consortium.


Centre for Social Sciences in H2020 and Horizon Europe

Established in 2012, the Centre for Social Sciences (CSS), a Centre of Excellence of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, is currently a partner in nine EU-funded projects within the frameworks of both Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe. This amounts to over €1.3 million in funding for excellent and innovative research.

CSS is part of the Eötvös Loránd Research Network, an independent public institution managed by a 13-member Governing Board and accountable to the Hungarian Parliament. CSS is classified as a public budgetary institution, making it eligible not only to submit proposals to any EU funding programme but also to participate in EU-funded projects as a coordinator, partner, or sole beneficiary.

The annual meeting of CSS took place on 23 March, 2023, where General Director Zsolt Boda presented the results of the previous year.
The scientific performance of CSS kept improving also in 2022.

New publication: Energy poverty and emerging debates

Institute for Political Science

As energy prices are increasing, the issue of energy poverty becomes even more relevant. How are European countries considering energy poverty in policies? Ana Stojilovska, Research Fellow at the Institute for Political Science led a group of researchers to explore whether, how, and why policy documents in Spain, France, Portugal, the UK, North Macedonia, and Slovenia link energy poverty to other related policy areas. The study was published in Energy Policy with an impact factor of 7.576. The paper has been prepared within the framework of the COST-funded ENGAGER network
