Winner of the 2022 Peter Nijkamp Award


Carolina Guevara-Rosero from The Ecuador National Polytechnic School, Ecuador, received the 2022 Peter Nijkamp RSAI Research Encouragement Award for an Mid-Career Scholar from a Developing Country.

Dr. Carolina Guevara-Rosero is the 2022 winner of the Peter Nijkamp RSAI Research Encouragement Award for a Mid-Career Scholar from a Developing Country. She received her Ph.D. from the Université Jean Monnet de Saint-Etienne in 2015, and since then, has been an Assistant Professor of Economics at The Ecuador National Polytechnic School. Her record for being a relatively fresh Ph.D. is striking. Dr. Guevara-Rosero has authored or coauthored fifteen peer-reviewed journal articles, received the 2019 Ecuadorian RSAI section’s Young Researcher Award, and frequently participates in regional science conferences in Europe and the Americas. Carolina’s research focusses on productivity, innovation, and firm location in Ecuador and more broadly in Latin America. Her work is noteworthy for its focus on applied topics with clear policy implications for developing countries in their efforts to achieve higher living standards. Most relevant research on related topics examines advanced economies, meaning Dr. Guevara-Rosero’s scholarship brings a relatively fresh perspective to traditional core topics in regional science. Dr. Carolina Guevara-Rosero’s excellence in regional science scholarship on developing countries makes her a exceptional choice for the 2022 Nijkamp Award.


The Award recognizes the outstanding potential of an mid-career researcher from a nation in the developing world and in which there is a formal Section of RSAI, and seeks to encourage the development of the early career scholar as a high quality researcher in the field of Regional Science and as a participant in the international Regional Science community.
