Voices of ERSA – the Groningen Videos 

At the 57th ERSA-Congress in Groningen, in August 2017, we asked some of the Congress participants about their research and their opinion on current challenges for the field of Regional Science. They told us about their research career, about their most exciting moments and about their prospects for future research. And of course, also the reason why they came to the ERSA Congress. The interviewees represent different disciplines, corresponding to the multidisciplinary content of the ERSA congresses.

Here you can find a new interview every two weeks, starting with Alain Thierstein (University of Munich). Get inspired!
