The COHESIFY partner Central European University together with the Regional Studies Association (RSA) is organising a workshop on “Cross-border regions & inter-regional policy transfer in the past, present & future” which will take place in Budapest on 29 and 30 June 2017.

The workshop is part of a 2-year event cycle organised by the RSA Research Network on Regional Economic and Policy History which was founded in celebration of 50 years of RSA.

The main objective of the network is to explore what a historic perspective may contribute to regional studies as well as current regional policy-making and how approaches and methodologies used by historians can be better integrated in regional studies. The event focuses on the development of cooperation between regions within and across national borders, with special attention to communication, learning and policy transfer.

Some of the latest COHESIFY results will be presented for the first time ever during the workshop.

Interested researchers are invited to submit their papers by 10 May 2017 and travel bursaries are available for RSA members.
