Over the last decades new patterns of regional disparities and polarisation have developed in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) countries, drawing the attention of both researchers and policy-makers. Cohesion Policy responded to this challenge by focusing on balanced spatial development of the European regions. However, although achieving significant progress in developing towards the EU-average, CEE still faces serious internal spatial imbalances between metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas, between core regions and peripheries.

The increasing social and economic disparities at regional level within CEE have led to the need to develop new strategies with a strong spatial focus, in order to deal with and respond to the challenges. This conference seeks to explore questions such as: how can we deal with polarisation and peripheralisation? What are the challenges for future place-based policies? What new approaches should be developed to deal with growing regional imbalances?

The RSA CEE Conference in Cluj-Napoca welcomes inputs from researchers, policy-makers and practitioners working in all areas of regional development. The conference will offer an excellent opportunity for initiating a multidisciplinary dialogue on themes such as:


Resilient Communities   

 Creative Regions/Economies (ITC, Creative Industries)
The Role of Clusters in Local Development     

Rural Areas Under Pressure (Marginalization & Rural Peripheries/Areas)
Prospects for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Use in Regional Development     

Sustainable Transport and Urban Mobility
Regional Impacts and Responses to Climate Change     

Territorial Change: Polarised Spatial Development or Convergence?
Environmental, Economic and Social Risks and Vulnerabilities     

Cross-Border Regions and Transnational Cooperation
Geo-politics and Geo-economy     

Places and Tourism Destination Development
GIS, GIScience and Spatial Data     

Urban/Regional Change and Development in CEE
Smart Specialization
