What is the Regions in Recovery Festival?
It is a research-led celebration of thinking about our regions and cities in a time of great crisis and change. The word Festival illustrates that the event takes place over several weeks, accommodating the work of many researchers and policymakers along with an optional social and well-being programme. The collective goal is to bring together an inclusive community to share research thoughts and to network.
The 2021 Regions in Recovery Festival (#RinR21) ran between 2nd-18th June 2021. In over 2.5 weeks the Festival featured 458 papers, 124 sessions including 10 well-being sessions. The Festival ran as a multi-partner event and brought together the global regional studies and regional science community. With over 1,250 participants representing 71 countries, the #RinR21 Festival represents a major event and celebration in regional research, policy and development.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We will operate flexible length working days to maximise ease of attendance globally. We will also offer asynchronous delivery of sessions where presenters have opted in to have their presentation recorded. This means that some presentations and sessions will be available to view after they take place. Please note that we cannot guarantee that all presentations and sessions will be made available as a recording due to the opt-in system we are operating. Thank you for your understanding. Recordings will be available until the end of August 2021.
The conference platform will be hosted by the RSA Hub app (download it from your app store provider) and is driven by RD Mobile Technology. The sessions will be hosted on zoom.
While unexpected technical problems may arise across countries we will do our best to be prepared for the most common technical pitfalls of large events.
All speakers are encouraged to send the Festival Coordinator a recording of their presentation and their final slide deck (if using). If bandwidth fails, the recording and/or slides will be shown by the session promoter and the speaker may still be present to take any questions and comments live. The presenter will still need to opt-in for the recording to be made available after the session.
Once their abstract has been accepted, presenters have the choice to opt in to have their presentation recorded. This means that some presentations and sessions will be available to view after they take place. Due to capacity this may take a few days but the organisers will do it as quickly as possible. Please note that we cannot guarantee that all presentations and sessions will be made available as a recording due to the opt-in system we are operating. Thank you for your understanding. Recordings will be available until the end of August 2021 and posted to YouTube.
