Awards 2018

The Association’s guiding mission is to be the world’s leading community of scholars, policy makers and practitioners in regional studies, and to support them in using their work to promote more inclusive and sustainable local socio-economic development. Our Annual Awards Ceremony was established to celebrate contributions to the field, both at personal and institutional levels. It is an excellent occasion to meet and network.

Many thanks for helping us to make our recent annual President’s Event and Awards dinner such a wonderful evening.

The photo’s from the event are now available to view on Flickr and you can access them by clicking here.
