The Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO) is very pleased to announce the 11th international workshop in honour of
Geoffrey J.D. Hewings, Professor of Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign and member of WIFO's International
Board. Professor Hewings has published numerous scientific contributions in economics, economic geography, urban and regional
planning, input-output analysis and other fields, and is always eager to share his knowledge and give advice to younger scholars.
This year's workshop will focus on topics around the urban-rural divide as well as winning and losing regions in times of
increasingly digitalised economies and societies. Additionally, empirical contributions from a broader range of regional economics
are also welcome.
