Thus, the scope of the ERSA 2017 Conference was ‘Hopes & Threats’ that were or would be influencing the social, economic, environmental, and political situation of Regions of Tomorrow. Moreover, the event was an excellent opportunity for networking activities on future projects.

Therefore, i.a. regionalists, statisticians, econometricians, applied scientists, political scientists, sociologists, geographers, and economists joined us to share knowledge and exchange ideas.
