INTRODUCTIVE METHODS AND APPROACHES IN REGIONAL SCIENCE: Intensive program for PhD and postdoctoral students
6 - 8 October 2021 | Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, Romania

The Centre for European Studies of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iași, Romania will organise an intensive program for nurturing the future generation of researchers in regional science between 6-8 October. The event, supported by the Regional Science Association International (RSAI), will focus on sharing new methodological approaches in regional science methodology and on developing particular abilities and competences required for PhD and postdoctoral students. It will address foundations of qualitative and quantitative analysis and identify the best publishing strategies for young researchers. The main aim of the program is to develop a more informed and conscious use of diverse methodological techniques that can foster and enrich research in regional science and to ensure the enhancement of methodological skills and research competences of the future generation of researchers in regional science. The workshops will address a solid grounding in the concepts, practices, and procedures underlying research, as well as advanced skills for conceptualization, assessment, and analysis across cases and/or over time.


Eligibility: The workshops are designed for PhD students and postdoctoral students with less than 3 years of experience following their PhD defence from fields related to regional science (geography, economy, urban planning and other related fields). The event addresses participants from Europe with a particular focus, but not exclusively, to Romania, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Georgia and Turkey. The maximum number of participants accepted is 25 (maximum 5 per country).


The Intensive program has no participation fee. The organisers will cover for: • Lunch and coffee break throughout the event • Teaching materials • Accommodation for four nights in double rooms
