Istvan Janos Toth presented the CRCB’s new research results in William Gates Building of Computer Laboratory at the conference ”Frontiers of Data Science for Government: Ideas, Practices, and Projections. Data for Policy -2016” organised by University of Cambridge.
The presentation dealt with corruption risk detection, measuring of competitive intensity and the new way to analyse overpricing suggested by the CRCB’s researchers. Based on statistical analysis of 127,000 Hungarian public procurement and 1,700,000 European ones, the presentation pointed out the perverse effect of EU funding to the Hungarian economy (shrinking compatitive intensity, raising corruption risks, overpricing and helping to build a crony capitalist system in Hungary).
