Save the date of the 10th winter seminar

This year's 10th winter seminar of regional science will take place from March 11th to 14th 2020. We have several great news for you. First, the seminar changed its name. Since next year, the seminar is organized jointly by the Polish, Hungarian and Slovak sections of the European Regional Science Association. Since science has no nationality, we decided to rename the seminar to the Central European Winter Seminar in Regional Science. We are glad that by doing so we contribute to strengthening international cooperation in regional science. The second important news is that we have decided to highlight the contribution of women in regional science and have invited two top researchers. Our dear guests are Eveline van Leeuwen (Wageningen University, NL) and Katarzyna Kopczewska (University of Warsaw, PL). Looking forward to see you in March!
