Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Doctoral School of Regional and Economic Sciences!

Pursuant to the resolution no. 2003/7/II./1/1. of the Hungarian Accreditation Committee (HAC), Széchenyi István University launched a doctoral programme in 2004 with the title “Economy, law, regionalism and society in an integrated Central Europe”. The Doctoral School has operated under the name Doctoral School of Regional and Economic Sciences since the 1st September 2008.

The doctoral school and the related research programme aims at exploring future directions for cooperation, as well as all the push and pull factors of this cooperation within the Central European region. It also aims at searching for the right conditions for interweaving the economic, social and institutional relations, since if the various players of the economy increasingly feel the need for interdependence, then future cooperation can become more active and its successes more lasting, thus contributing to European integration itself. One possible dimension of cooperation is the introduction and expansion of regional relations. Therefore, it is necessary to explore current and future possibilities of cooperation in the region. However, this can only become stable within the appropriate legal framework, so it is essential to study and compare the different legal institutions on the state, regional and community levels.

Our homepage provides visitors with a wide range of up-to-date information concerning the School's operations: news, policies, lecturers, contact information, admission news, students, course material, conferences and documents needed for the procedures of obtaining a doctoral degree.
