TITLE: “PRESENT AND FUTURE CHALLENGES IN REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE ADRIATIC-IONIAN REGION”
ANCONA, ITALY – 15-16 SEPTEMBER 2022
CALL FOR PAPERS – EXTENDED ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 15TH JUNE 2022
As a functional area primarily defined by the Adriatic and Ionian Seas basin, the Adriatic and Ionian Region plays a key role in strengthening geographical continuity in Europe. Comprising several countries and many regions that are highly diversified in relation to the socio-economic and physical dimension, it covers an important terrestrial surface area and homes more than 70 million people.
The Region is facing unprecedented challenges, from the post-pandemic recovery to the green and digital revolution, which are increasing disparities between central and peripheral regions and inland areas within the same region. The region is part of the European Union Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) launched in 2014, a long-term strategic policy framework aiming to promote economic and social prosperity and growth in the region by improving its attractiveness, competitiveness, and connectivity. After seven years of implementation, it is time for a first evaluation of its results and for proposing new development trajectories for the Adriatic-Ionian Regions and its inner areas.
The aim of the 9th REDETE Conference is to encourage researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to contribute to our understanding of the challenges faced by countries and regions to promote economic development and regional integration.
