ERSA Summer School 2021
Spatial Analysis of Regional Inequality
27 June – 03 July 2021, Groningen, The Netherlands

The European Regional Science Association is pleased to announce in collaboration with ERSA Dutch Section and The Faculty of Spatial Sciences and The Faculty of Economic and Business of the University of Groningen for the organisation of the 34th ERSA Summer School which will be held from Sunday 27th June to Saturday 3rd July at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

As in the tradition, ERSA Summer School aims to gather young researchers (PhD and postdoctoral students) from Europe with direct training in regional science. This edition’s topic will be: “Spatial Analysis of Regional Inequality”. Regional Inequality is a significant challenge for regional science with several issues, needs, opportunities but also threats for regions specialized in e.g. tourism, services or/and manufacturing. Production, innovation and consumption systems, labour markets, entrepreneurship, educations and human capital, urban versus rural, transport and mobility are just few examples of elements that are evolving face to this challenge. Specific attention will be paid to the spatial analysis implications of COVID19. Therefore, we intend to focus on the most relevant concepts as well as analytical models and frameworks to be able to understand the determinants of inequality and the implications for policy.

More details on the call for applicants to be communicated in due time.
