The Irish Branch of the Regional Studies Association, the School of Economics UCC and the South West Regional Authority invite speakers for the following one day conference:
REGIONAL ECONOMIC RESILIENCE
MILLENNIUM HALL, CORK CITY
Friday 22 February 2013
Introduction: The economic crisis that has swept across the global economy since 2008 has had significant implications for regional economies. It is clear that the global economic crisis has had an uneven impact across regions. This raises questions as to the resilience of different regions to economic crises, and the place of policy makers in strengthening regional economic resilience. The RSA, the School of Economics UCC and the SWRA wish to invite you to a one-day conference on the theme of Regional Economic Resilience.
PROFESSOR RON MARTIN, Professor of Economic Geography, Fellow Cambridge-MIT Institute Research
DR ADRIAN HEALY, Cardiff School of Planning and Geography. Dr. Healy currently co-ordinates an ESPON-funded leading study into economic resilience of regions in the face of economic crisis. Apart from EU-wide insights his presentation will focus on the findings of his case study of the South West Region.
