The Regional Studies Association Europe's Socio-Spatial Dynamics Summer College will create a fertile environment to tackle current challenges, as well as training students and young researchers to collaborate and work across disciplines. It will focus on how ideas, theories, methods and data can be leveraged across disciplines for the purpose of scientific advancement. Applications are welcome from PhD candidates and post-docs who have been awarded a PhD in the past 5 years, from a variety of disciplines and institutional backgrounds.
This conference will give PhD students and early career researchers (within 5 years after finishing a PhD) the opportunity to network, collaborate and socialise with others working in regional and urban studies, planning, geography, politics, development studies, economics and related fields. This is an annually run conference and previous participants particularly valued the invaluable feedback received, new ideas and learning how to strategically develop and enhance their profiles for career progression.
