ELTE – IREG International Ranking-Conference in Budapest, Hungary

!!! Online Conference - 19-21 May 2021!!!

About the Goal and Topics of Conference

A special feature of our event is a look at rankings from an “external perspective” using the terms of social sciences and humanities.
  • Rankings and the Decision Makers
  • Meeting of Three Cultures: Universities, Rankings and the Social-Economic Environment
  • Are There Theories of Rankings?
  • Theoretical Approches to Excellence
  • Rankings as Social and Media Phenomena
  • Reflections from Ranking Providers
What do humanities and social sciences tell us about the ranking phenomenon, and how have these scientific approaches extended our knowledge about rankings?

In order to demonstrate this, a conference will be organised by Social Communication Research Group at the Faculty of Education and Psychology of Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) (Institute of Research on Adult Education and Knowledge Management) as a traditional research university of humanities, arts and sciences, addressing practitioners of the humanities and social sciences. The conference is sponsored by PADME Foundation (Central Bank of Hungary) and our partner is the IREG Observatory on Academic Ranking and Excellence (IREG). Our professional co-organiser partner is the Budapest Ranking Research Group (BRRG) , affiliated to the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and hosted by University Pannonia (head: Dr. András Telcs).
