The NARIC - Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (ABC) represents the largest and most important group of scientists in the plant and animal biotechnology field in Hungary.
The Agro-Environmental Research Institute (AERI) operates as a part of the National Agricultural Research and Innovation Centre (NARIC), a network of institutes located throughout Hungary.
About the institute
FSRI as a collective food science research centre aims at creating a bridge between food producers and food science. Beside its activities in fundamental research, it offers practice-oriented applied research services in the fields of technological sciences, food product development, food quality analyses, and origin protection.
Today, the NARIC Forest Research Institute (ERTI) is the heart of the institutionalized and independent forest research in Hungary existing from 1898.
The NARIC Fruitculture Research Institute founded on 1st January 2014 is the legal successor of Research Stations located in Budapest, Érd, Cegléd and Fertőd of the Horticultural Research Institute’s Fruit Growing Department founded in 1950.
The first predecessor in title of NARIC Institute of Agricultural Engineering (NARIC MGI) was established in Mosonmagyaróvár, Hungary in 1869.
The NARIC MGI is a research institute dealing with engineering and technical research, development, innovation and other related activities to enhance the mechanization of agriculture.
According to its deed of foundation, the scope of activities of the Institute included basic and applied research and development activity related to the genetics, breeding, reproduction, meat science, nutrition, feed utilization, physiology of nutrition, management and feeding technology of the so-called large farm animals (cattle, swine, sheep, horse).
The Research Institute for Fisheries and Aquaculture (Hungarian acronym is HAKI) is a governmental organisation that has been established in 1953 at Szarvas.
The Institute – one of the first established of the kind and still functioning as a research station – is the successor to the Central Experimental Station for Viticulture and Institute for Ampelology founded in 1896. It has been operating comprising two research stations (in Badacsony and Kecskemét) as an R&D institution within the network of the National Agricultural Research and Innovation Centre since 2014.
Established in 1954, AKI is the most significant centre of agricultural economics research in Hungary.
The most important core functions of the Institute are data collection related to the agricultural economy and data-based policy research.
The Department of Information Systems manages European Union compliant information systems including the Farm Accountancy Data Network, Market Price Information System and Agricultural Statistics Information System.
Its Departments of Research carry out mainly database- and policy analysis-driven research.
The Research Department of Irrigation and Water Management (NARIC ÖVKI) was founded through the separation of research activities of the former Research Institute for Fisheries, Aquaculture and Irrigation (HAKI).
The Vegetable Crop Research Department of National Agricultural Research and Innovation Center was established on 1st January 2014 with three research stations.
