TÁRKI was the Hungarian partner in the World Bank research on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which was supported by a grant from the European Commission's Directorate-General for Employment and Social Affairs. The research focused on the attitudes of the 500 biggest companies - both state and privately owned - towards the concept of CSR. The work has contributed to our understanding of CSR practices and has been important to World Bank activities supporting development in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
TÁRKI is Hungary's representative in the policy-oriented research Ageing, Health Status and Determinants of Health Expenditure (AHEAD). The project (which falls within the ENEPRI network) seeks to refine the existing estimates of the links between reported states of health and use of medical services. As well as looking at the effects of ageing on health care, the research considers the link between health expenditure and fertility rates, and the demands placed on health services by non-native populations. Particular attention is paid to the cost of care near death.
AIM is a 6th Framework Specific Targeted Research Project of the European Network of Policy Research Institutes (ENEPRI) coordinated by Jorgen Mortensen (CEPS). See the homepage of the entire project at http://www.enepri.org/. TARKI is responsible for work package (WP) 3 and it participates in WP5, WP8, WP9 and WP10.
The Household Lifecourse Survey Project (HÉV) was supported by the NKTH Jedlik programme. The aim of the project was to explore changes to Hungarian households with the help of a panel sample.
