Dear RSAI members,
We are very happy to deliver great news!
The RSAI Council decided to organize the 14th edition of the World Congress of Regional Science at John Von Neumann University in Kecskemét, Hungary. The Congress, entitled "Sustainable regional economic growth: Global challenges and new regional development trajectories" is co-organized by the Hungarian section of the RSAI and John von Neumann University, is going to run from Apr. 8 through Apr. 11, 2024. It will represent a great opportunity for regional scientists from all over the world to get together and exchange ideas, criticism, and suggestions to advance our understanding of the discipline.
Kecskemét is located just 40 minutes away from lovely Budapest, and offers great accessibility for people reaching the congress from different locations.
The congress already has confirmed keynote speakers (Prof. Özge Öner, University of Cambridge, UK, Prof. Eduardo Haddad, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, Prof. Hee-Jung Jun, Sungkyunkwan University, Korea, Prof. Sarah A. Low, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USA, Prof. Balázs Lengyel, ELKH Centre for Economic and Reg. Studies, Hungary).
The organizers guarantee the geographically, and discipline-wise, widest and most different crowd of regional scientists among all congresses. We will follow up with more details as soon as possible, but in the meantime, do set these dates in your agendas!
