The first BURENet workshop in 2018 has been the opportunity for several scholars in urban and regional economics to meet and discuss their scientific research in a friendly, informal environment. Given the success of the first workshop, we propose the second edition to continue this scientific dialogue, sharing ideas and exchange research perspectives on urban and regional economics. We believe this is needed to further stimulate our research gathering scholars at all level: university professors, researchers and doctoral students.

We are very happy to invite you to submit papers for what will be the Second Scientific Workshop organized by the Belgian Urban and Regional Economists Network (BURENet).

Expected full communications or abstracts can be located in economics and examine questions strongly linked to the regional or urban contexts and/or issues. Their focus can be on innovation and entrepreneurial processes, mobility, public finance, scientific policy, labour markets… This list is indicative and certainly not exhaustive. The main goal is to come together to discuss science with reference to economics and regional and urban issues, all in a relaxed and constructive atmosphere.
