57th ERSA CONGRESS "Social Progress for Resilient Regions"
29 August - 1 September 2017 Groningen, The Netherlands

In a world of rapid economic and technological change, resilient regions with sustainable socio-economic structures and institutions are more important than ever for social progress and development. The ERSA congress “Social Progress for Resilient Regions” will host a large variety of themes in spatial, regional and urban economics, economic geography and regional policy topics like local governance and institutions.

With around 800 participants every year from all continents, the ERSA congresses have become the largest academic conferences in regional science worldwide. There is simply no better place to present your research results, network or exchange, find out about new developments in the field, or just to meet colleagues and friends.
