A wonderful opportunity for those interested in studying cities and regions. The GSSI is launching the PhD in Urban Studies and Regional Science.
The aim of the PhD is to address issues related to local development with specific reference to industrial clusters, economic, social and spatial dynamics of cities, regional development, governance of urban policies, the role of knowledge and innovation, social inclusion. The methodological perspective of research and teaching is multidisciplinary, combining regional and urban economics, economic and human geography, spatial planning and sociology.
I’m very delighted to be part of the faculty and of the picking committee.
