Road to ERSA2017 Public Lectures Programme

The Road to ERSA 2017 consists of four public lectures by prominent regional scientists as a precursor to the ERSA Congress in August 2017 in Groningen. The lectures cover the broad field of regional sciences with implications for (Northern) Dutch regions and cities. 

We aim to: 
- have a constructive interaction between policy and regional science on relevant topics
- generate awareness and publicity for the ERSA Congress
- provide an outlet channel for sponsors and partners
