La Riqueza de las Regiones (por la Asociación Española de Ciencia Regional

Award for the best contribution

The blog “The wealth of the regions” began in March 2014, as an instrument of communication and exchange of ideas with the society of the Spanish Association of Regional Science (AECR). The objective is to promote reflection and the creation of opinion on regional matters from a multidisciplinary perspective, being open to all scientists, professionals and those interested in the regional field. As a consequence of the blog’s reception and its repercussion, an award has been created for a contribution each year.
