At the University of Szeged, we are motivated by the question of whether and how RRI can be incorporated into transition countries and we investigate this broader question in the more specific instance of piloting Socio-Technical Integration Research (STIR) within laboratories located in less-developed regions. We implemented the STIR method in two research groups working in Szeged, Hungary, the first STIR research in a underdeveloped region.

Recent highlights include publishing (in Közgazdasági Szemle) the first synthesizing study about the nature of RRI written in Hungarian.

We are currently engaged in establishing an RRI research group at the University of Szeged.
