14th EU-REAL Conference

Welcome to Coimbra

Dear Colleagues,

Once again the EU-REAL community comes together to discuss new works and undergoing papers covering several topics of Regional Science.

The Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra, Portugal, is proud to announce that it will host the 14th EU-REAL Conference, in September 4-5, 2017.

It is being organized by a Local Committee (of researchers from the Centre of Business and Economics Research of the University of Coimbra) and it will provide several sessions with paper presentations. All works on Regional and Urban Economic modelling are welcome.

In these two working days, we look forward to get together people at different stages on his/her academic progress, from PhD students to Full Professors. The idea is to follow the Regional Economics Applications Laboratory mission, seeking “to provide timely, high quality analytical economic information for a variety of uses such as public policy decision making by public sector agencies and for strategic marketing in the private sector”. Therefore, our goal consists in reinforcing the cooperation between institutions and scholars in the fields of economics, geography, urban and regional planning, computer science and/or mathematics.

So, anyone interested in presenting a paper should follow the instructions in our call for papers, available in our website.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon, in Coimbra.
