Ecostat research institute to be transformed


Three Hungarian research units will be merged next year to integrate the country's economic research capacities and partly carry out research for the government, a business daily reported on Wednesday.

Ecostat, the research arm of the Central Statistical Office (KSH), will be expanded from January with the researchers of economic think tank Kopint-Datorg and the Public Administration Institute, Világgazdaság said. The new 42-member institute will carry out economic and social strategy research in close cooperation with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, corporate interest associations and social organizations. The institute will be named as Ecostat Government Research Institute for Economic and Social Strategy and led by Pál Belyó, the current director of Ecostat. Ecostat is expected to cover the bulk of its costs from its own revenues, to be supplemented with state subsidies. (
