Territorial Futures – Visions and scenarios for a resilient Europe

Today is the deadline for deadline abstract (and paper) submission – don’t miss out!

The European Regional Sciences Association (ERSA), is organising its 60th congress, with the title “Territorial Futures – Visions and scenarios for a resilient Europe”. The congress is expected to take place from 24th to 27th of August 2021, in Bolzano, northern Italy, and its main purpose is to give a coherent overview of the main territorial developments, as well as their current/potential implications on the domains of Regional Science in Europe. Such territorial developments and challenges include demographic change, climate change, loss of biodiversity, and aggravating resource scarcity, heterogeneous land use, social inequalities, migration, energy transition, changing nature of work, pandemics, etc. During the congress, strategies and ideas of how to effectively render the European territories resilient against these threats will also be discussed.

More information about the central topic can be found here.

In the framework of the congress, participants can apply their abstract and papers for two different sessions:

  1. Ordinary Sessions. Submission of an abstract (200-400 words) is required (deadline: 30th March 2021, midnight GMT+1).
  2. Special Sessions. Submission of an abstract (200-400 words) and an extended abstract (1,200-2,000 words) or a full (draft) paper are required (deadline: 30th March 2021, midnight GMT+1).
