Ericsson Hungary has opened a new headquarters and R&D center in Budapest which includes a hypermodern test laboratory, Ericsson’s innovation space, and Ericsson Garage.
The purpose-built facility is one of the most modern workplace complexes in Hungary, said Ericsson.
More than 1,700 of Ericsson Hungary’s 2,000 employees work at the site, located in the heart of Budapest’s university area on the banks of the River Danube. Within Ericsson House itself more than 1,400 employees are R&D-focused. Their other site colleagues work in service delivery, sales and business area roles.
Ericsson House R&D center is part of Ericsson’s global R&D ecosystem. The new facility comprises state-of-the-art facilities, including a hypermodern test laboratory, Ericsson’s innovation space, and Ericsson Garage.
Ericsson also signed a strategic partnership with Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) to extend collaboration aimed at long-term close cooperation in education, research, and innovation.
