Presentation

This Summer School is designed for Economics PhD students with an interest in Urban and Regional topics. In addition to those students specialized in Urban and Regional Economics, we encourage the participation from PhD students in Labour, Development, Public, Trade and other applied fields who want to improve their knowledge in the field. The objective of the school is twofold: to offer an intensive training program for interested PhD students, and to provide them with the opportunity to present and discuss their own ongoing research with leading researchers in the field in a relaxed and open atmosphere.
