Nurturing New Talent 2023

The RSAI aims to continue promoting the development of Regional Science by nurturing new talent in 2023. 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.

Organizers of workshops and summer schools fulfilling the above aims are encouraged to submit a two-page case for support, within October 9, 2022 to the RSAI secretariat (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Individuals are encouraged to consult with their national and supranational sections to allow better coordination among different initiatives.

All applications will be reviewed by the Committee and will have to be formally approved by the RSAI Council. Their decision will be final.
