Communiqué on EU-funding restrictions

The European Commission has recently communicated through several channels that certain Hungarian organisations are excluded from EU funding.

This does not apply to ESSRG.

The Decision (EU) 2022/2506 concerns institutions that are public interest trusts established based on the Hungarian Act IX of 2021 or any entity maintained by such a public interest trust. As far as we know, at this moment, this restriction affects about 20 entities in Hungary (mainly universities).

ESSRG is an independent, private (owned by researchers), non-profit research company, and we have no connection with public interest trusts.

While we feel sorry for our research colleagues who cannot apply for EU funded projects at the moment, we keep continuing our work on the European horizon and beyond toward just, healthy, safe, and ecologically fair societies.
