Due to the current global health crisis, our summer school which was scheduled from 14-19 June, 2020 at the University of Lausanne - Sion site in Switzerland, will now be held virtually from 15 to 17 June 2020.
IGD is pleased to host the 33rd Summer School of the European Regional Science Association next June. The purpose of this summer school is to bring together young international (mainly European) doctoral and post-doctoral fellows working on the themes related to regional sciences. The topic chosen for this edition is "Regions in transition, what are the implications for tourism and manufacturing?". The aim of the Summer school is to address the consequences of climate change and sustainability on the development of industrial and/or tourism regions in terms of production, innovation, consumption, labour markets, transport and mobility, environmental and social impacts, etc.
