Welcome to the Geological and Geophysical Institute of Hungary

Dear Visitor,
Welcome to the website of the Geological and Geophysical Institute of Hungary!
Our Institute was established by the Hungarian Government in April 2012, uniting the Geological Institute of Hungary and the Eötvös Loránd Geophysical Institute. Our institution operates under the authority of the Ministry of National Development; its intermediate governing body is the Mining Bureau of Hungary.
Both founding institutions have more than a hundred-year long history, and not only at national but also at international level can be considered as a pioneers in the field of geological and geophysical research. With the fusion of the two institutes, two complementary kinds of professional experience have been merged, which increases the efficiency of the institute on the field of geology, geophysics, mining, and climate policy. Our activities include the promotion of sustainable management of mineral and water resources of Hungary, as well as the research of the geological aspects of energy resources and the study of the processes within the Earth.
The extensive professional knowledge represented by the institute ensures that we efficiently carry out our tasks received either from the government, the public or economic actors.
Please familiarize yourself with our institute!
Dr. Tamás Fancsik
Hon. professor
