15th Nov – 16th Nov 2018 09:00 – 17:00We are living through a period of profound change. Fundamental shifts occurring economically (increasing leadership in Asia, new opportunities in Africa, raising connectivity through global investment flows), demographically (aging populations, migration), politically (resurgent secession movements, isolationism and protectionism), democratically (unexpected electoral outcomes), technologically (Industry 4.0, ‘big data’), environmentally (smart urbanism), and socially (raising inequalities, security concerns) all have important implications for cities and regions. In times of growing uncertainty and instability, regional research is vital to inform public debates and invoke appropriate policy responses. Indeed, regional research can once more be seen spearheading major efforts to provide the type of reliable, robust knowledge necessary to correct the opening up of gaps between people and places which are emerging as winners and losers from these processes. But the stakes have never been higher, and with more major changes on the horizon – e.g. Brexit, post-2020 EU Budget – there is an urgent need to examine how they will impact the futures of cities and regions, and equally important, the nature of regional research in the years ahead.
