Dear Members of ERSA, dear Colleagues,

Regional Science don’t stop during the summer.

This week Agenda includes two Summer Schools (Croatian Section, AISRe), and two Conferences (ASRDLF, GFR).

I am writing to you from La Réunion where ASRDLF is concluding today its 59th Congress. A very rich event where there was great enthusiasm for the quality of the programme and exchange between participants. And most of all the election of a new President.

July is also a busy agenda for our community: ERSA Summer School in Iasi is about to start as well as the RSAI-Bis annual Conference, to be followed by APDR Congress.

Last but not least, our efforts continue to design the best attractive programme for our Annual Congress. In addition to our keynote Lectures and Roundtables, we will propose very outstanding Sessions with hot or innovative topics. During 5 days, the Congress will gather hundreds of Presenters from worldwide including proven scholars, young scientists but also practitioners and key policy makers. 

I wish you a nice summer and look forward to meet you during ERSA Congress, in Alicante or online.

With best wishes,

André Torre, ERSA President
