ERSA2020 Call for Special Session Proposals is OPEN!


The ERSA2020 will again offer the exciting and fresh format of Special Sessions. Special Sessions consist of in-depth discussions, knowledge sharing and best quality of presentations. They bring added value to our congress and contribute to making it the largest academic event in Regional Science worldwide.


This year’s topic is Territorial Futures – Visions and scenarios to cope with megatrends in a changing Europe.

The congress aims at presenting the principal megatrends and their current/potential implications on the domains of Regional Science in Europe. At the same time, it will deal with possible and potentially successful strategies and/or solutions which deal with the negative consequences of the trends while also considering their positive effects.
