The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the University of Milan-Bicocca organise NESPUTT, an international workshop which will take place in Milan on the 21st and 22nd of November 2019.

The workshop aims at fostering an interdisciplinary debate involving economists, statisticians, modellers and other social scientists towards a better understanding of contemporary regions and cities, viewed as complex socio-economic systems.
It encourages contributions about new theoretical/methodological approaches and applied research from regional economics, behavioural economics, environmental economics, experimental economics, statistics and other quantitative disciplines.

Some possible topics applied to regional and urban themes:

  • Behavioural economics
  • Digital transformation
  • Environmental economics
  • Experimental economics
  • Inequality
  • Innovation and competitiveness
  • Migration
  • Nudging
  • Regional divide
  • Regional economic adjustment and development
  • Small areas
  • Social exclusion
  • Social mobility
  • Spatial modelling/statistics/econometrics
