Orbán Attends Ericsson Headquarters Opening
Swedish networking and telecommunications company Ericsson inaugurated a new headquarters and R+D centre in Budapest on Tuesday. The headquarters, dubbed Ericsson House, was inaugurated by Ericsson chairman-CEO Borje Ekholm and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

More than 1,700 of Ericsson Hungary’s 2,000 employees work at the site on the banks of the Danube, and over 1,400 of these staff are R+D-focused. Ericsson also signed a memorandum of understanding with the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) to extend a collaboration aimed at long-term close cooperation in education, research, and innovation.
