The Centre for Social Sciences (CSS) is the flagship research institute of social sciences in Hungary. It conducts disciplinary and interdisciplinary research in the areas of sociology, political science, computational social science, network science, minority studies and legal studies using the latest scientific methods and high-quality research data. CSS Budapest is dedicated to building collaborative, trans-disciplinary research networks both within Hungary and internationally.



The Centre for Social Sciences is not operated as a public interest fund and is not affected by the EU Council rule of law conditionality decision linked to Erasmus and Horizon Europe funding. We are able to participate in proposals and receive funding in both of these EU funding programmes without any restrictions.
