Published in Regional Science Main Schools

Regional Science research at the LSE is conducted in a wide range of academic departments, research institutes and centres. Its main homes are in the Department of Geography and Environment and in the Spatial Economics Research Centre (SERC).  Research in Regional Science within both the Department and SERC has been concerned with issues of regional development, spatial inequality, innovation, agglomeration, labour market outcomes, urban economics, as well asproperty markets and real estate economics.  

There are around 20 faculty members involved in Regional Science research. They are at the centre of a larger group involving postgraduate researchers and PhD students. The research conducted at the LSE regularly appears in top international Regional Science, Economics, and Geography journals and its quality – as well as the standing of LSE researchers – has been recognized by numerous international awards and prizes.

Much of the research developed in Regional Science at the LSE has important policy implications. This is reflected in the key roles played by LSE researchers as advisers and consultants to numerous international organisations and government departments and the private sector.
