The Centre for Regional Studies (CRS) is a multidisciplinary research institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, pursuing social studies (academic as well as applied research) focused on spatial issues. This particular orientation is supported also by the network-based structure of the institute: we operate 10 departments in 9 towns/cities (the headquarter is in Pécs).

Research topics related to services are the followings:

  • Business services and regional development;
  • Services in the innovation process – innovation in services;
  • Public services: efficiency, location and planning;
  • Public administration and regional planning;
  • Services in urban space: suburbanisation, gentrification; transformation of urban land markets;
  • Geography of retailing.
For further information of publication and research activities in the CRS please, have a look at www.rkk.hu.
