Date and time
To join the conversation, please use#RSAEC
This event is the RSA’s inaugural carbon choice conference allowing both attendance in person at Staffordshire University and also remote, virtual participation from your own location. The development of this conference recognises the environmental impact and social, financial and opportunity costs of travelling to conferences.
The conference will give students and early career researchers* the opportunity to network, collaborate and socialise with others in the fields of regional and urban studies, planning, geography, politics, development studies, economics and related disciplines.
This new style event is something of an experiment and the RSA is pleased to partner with leading digital learning provider Staffordshire University using the Staffordshire Business School’s state of the art facilities trialling the technologies permitting real time interventions across several workshops. Participants will find a multi-disciplinary, welcoming, supportive and stimulating environment.
Training areas addressed will include aspects of academic publishing, winning funding and top tips for managing research projects in early career, how to optimise impact from your research, how to prepare for appointment and promotion panels and how to negotiate pay rises.

The Department of Economics of the Universidad del Norte invites you to participate in a novel way at the 2020 RSA Student and Early Career Conference. Research for Impact? Shaping and Influencing Regional and Urban Policy.
As a remote presenter at the 2020 RSA Student and Early Career Conference you will not only participate at the RSA Conference and benefit from feedback on your presentation, but will also participate in activities that are organized locally by the Universidad del Norte.
As a Regional Hub of this conference, we will – apart from the conference program to which we will be connected remotely – organize a session of presentation with a subsequent discussion with Vicente Royuela Mora (University of Barcelona) and David Castells Quintana (Autonomous University of Barcelona) on March 25th. This session focuses on the topic “Migration, Climate Change and Urbanization”. As such, you will interact with other potential presenters of the RSA Conference as well as with professors from Economics at the Universidad del Norte and the two invited international speakers.
As this session of presentation is organized in the context of our biggest institutional academic event – “Catedra Europa” – all remote presenters who attend the presentation from our local hub will participate in the Catedra Europa as well. Catedra Europa seeks to strengthen international bonds, to stimulate project and academic exchange. For more than twenty consecutive years, Catedra Europa has become the flagship program of our organization. It is vibrant academic environment having attracted more than 1500 scholars from renowned universities across Europe and supported by the European embassies and the European Union.
There are two scholarships for accommodation of 1 night at a local hotel available as well as local transport and meals available.
