Areas of Expertise

Environmental Social Science Research Group (ESSRG) operates in Budapest as a small independent research company. We nourish a collaborative and cooperative research approach, involving various communities and stakeholder groups, while paying attention to those voices that are typically marginalized or voiceless, thus striving toward social justice and ecological sustainability. Our major fields of expertise include, among others:

  • Valuation of ecosystem services
  • Alternative agro-food systems
  • Sustainability transitions

We believe in opening up the established systems of knowledge creation toward various forms of co-creation, including Participatory Action Research (PAR), Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and citizen science (CS), thus enhancing society’s capacity for transformative learning. Our methodological expertise ranges from more classical policy analysis and non-monetary valuation of ecosystem services towards science shop and citizen science activicies, participatory and deliberative tools, as well as design thinking approaches.
