NURTURING TALENT 2020
The RSAI aims to continue promoting the development of Regional Science by nurturing new talent in 2020. The council has therefore pledged resources to co-finance workshops and summer institutes intended to provide substantive training to pre-doctoral researchers, including the presentation of their work and receiving feedback from senior scholars and their peers. It is expected that the selected workshops and institutes will have considerable international geographical coverage.
All applications will be reviewed by the Committee and will have to be formally approved by the RSAI Council. Their decision will be final.
BUILDING BRIDGES IN REGIONAL SCIENCE
2020 conference participation support
The RSAI facilitates the participation of researchers from low-income and lower-middle-income economies (as defined by the World Bank: https://data.worldbank.org/about/country-and-lending-groups#Low_income) at the five largest Regional Science Conferences in 2020: LARSA, PRSCO, ERSA, NARSC, and the World Congress.
RSAI will provide a subsidy up to USD 500 (or the equivalent in other currencies) to selected researchers. This is likely to cover the conference registration fee and some local travel costs. Alternative means of financing will have to be sought for international travel and accommodation.
Only one author of a submitted paper presentation proposal can apply for a subsidy.
Interested researchers should upload a two-page CV plus a one-page motivation –including a budget with proposed sources of funding of the conference-related registration, travel and accommodation costs – within 30 days of receiving confirmation of the acceptance of the researcher’s abstract by the conference organizers.
Applicants should have had a paper accepted for presentation at the conference.
All applications, to be submitted at the following link:
will be reviewed by the Committee and will have to be formally approved by the RSAI Council. Their decision will be final.
