Individual membership

If you are interested in regional studies and regional sciences and you are not a full-time student, early career researcher (within 5 years of the date on PhD certificate or equivalent) or a corporate representative, you can join as an Individual member.

Read what our members say:

"I am a member of the RSA because it offers unrivaled opportunities for networking and exchange of ideas for those interested in regional development issues. The level of academic debate in the RSA journals and at the RSA conferences is high, and the support for new member-driven ventures such as Research Networks on particular topics is a real bonus that helps to develop a vibrant and inclusive environment. And then, of course, issues of practical policy relevance are never far from RSA debates, something that makes the work of the Association relevant far beyond academia."

Professor Henrik Halkier, Aalborg University, Denmark
