On 6 October, Professor Ron Boschma, Professor in Regional Economics at Utrecht University and Professor in Innovation Studies at Lund University, will deliver a lecture at DG Regional and Urban Policy.  The topic of the lecture is regional diversification and relatedness, its empirical evidence and policy implications, especially for smart specialization policy. 

The presentation by Prof. Boschma will be followed by a response by an invited discussant, Professor Raquel Ortega-Argilés, the Chair in Regional Economic Development at the University of Birmingham, and by questions and a discussion with the audience.

Academics, staff from DG REGIO, other Commission services, other EU institutions as well as from the Member States' representations and regional offices are welcome to participate!

This lecture is part of a series of academic lectures organized by DG REGIO and the European Regional Science Association (ERSA) on key issues in regional and urban policy. The purpose of this lecture series is to discuss current research and evidence on the implementation of cohesion policy, also with a view to the preparatory work for the post-2020 period. 

The lectures will be recorded and made available on both the Inforegio and ERSA websites.

We look forward to your participation in the lecture
