2nd Evolutionary Economic Geography Workshop in Central and Eastern Europe
Agglomeration Economies, Relatedness and Spatial Networks
21th-22th October 2015, Szeged, Hungary
Extended deadline for abstract submission: September 18, 2015
The Doctoral School in Economics at the University of Szeged is pleased to announce the 2nd workshop on „Evolutionary Economic Geography in Central and Eastern Europe: Agglomeration Economies, Relatedness and Spatial Networks”, which will be co-organized by the Hungarian Regional Science Association and the Regional Committee in Szeged of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
Evolutionary economic geography (EEG) experiences a dynamic boost, in which an interdisciplinary mix of geographers, regional scientists and economists apply new concepts and tools to describe regional economic dynamics. The aim of the workshop is to bring together internationally recognized scholars in the field of “Agglomeration economies, relatedness and spatial networks” and provide young researchers in CEE (Central and Eastern European) countries, who aim to understand complex regional dynamics of economic progress, with an overview of the most recent research ideas and quantitative tools. This event will be an important milestone in building an EEG community in CEE countries following a workshop with Ron Boschma in 2013, Budapest, and a special session with Simona Strambach at CERS Conference in 2014, Kosice.
We invite PhD students, and early career researchers from CEE countries to present a paper and discuss future research. Young scholars interested in post-socialist transition, regional progress in less developed countries, and spatial networks are also welcome from other countries.
Participation is free of charge. The workshop organizers provide free accomodation and meals for the presenters. The workshop is open to the public; however, due to place limitations, registration is required.
