Trends and Cycles in Region and City Growth Workshop

Trends and Cycles in Region and City Growth Workshop

Following the successful Local Economic Growth Conference held last year a follow up Workshop was held on Thursday 10th July 2014 looking at 'Trends and Cycles in Region and City Growth'. Both events were connected to the ESRC project 'How Regions React to Recession: Resilience, Hysteresis and Long-run impacts' (Grant ES/1035811/1). This final Workshop presented some of the latest findings from the work.

The Workshop was held at the Senior Combination Room, St Catharine's College, Cambridge. The delegates at the event comprised members of the ESRC Steering Group together with some representatives from central and local government along with other academics with expertise in this area of research. The programme for the day concentrated on four main areas of the ESRC work. The papers and presentations will be available for download here shortly.
