Óbuda University Research, Innovation and Service Center (EKIK)

The strategic goal of EKIK is to support and leverage the research of graduate students, to create an ecosystem of science and innovation, where intelligent learning and organic research meet applied development. EKIK is an internationally recognized research center and set an example on a national level. It consists of topical knowledge centers, aiming to spearhead a focus domain within the research portfolio of Óbuda University.

EKIK participates in the development of technology, focusing on novel tools and research environment, linking with appropriate control structures and user interfaces, helping the application of these technologies to serve the greater society. It provides application, interface and infrastructure for the partners and the external contractors. The key to its success is the ability to bring together the theoretical R&D and the practical applications. EKIK grants benefits for its members through integrated research projects, exchange programs, common publications and EU projects, which makes it easier for the industrial partners to access the new technologies, providing new applications and services to a wider public.
