EGIT – Economic Geography and International Trade Research Meeting
Volker Nitsch has been organizing – jointly with Gabriel Felbermayr (Ifo Institute, University of Munich) and Jens Südekum (Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics, DICE) – the Economic Geography and International Trade Research Meeting since 2010.
Researchers who are specialized in regional/urban economics and international trade come together in order to share their ideas and comment on each other’s research papers. The meetings encourage interaction and discussion between the researchers, so that new ideas and joint projects can be initiated. Any theoretical or empirical paper discussing the topics of economic geography or international trade is welcomed. This includes topics in urban economics, regional economics, new economic geography, international trade, foreign direct investment, and the economics of multinational firms.
The EGIT meetings aim at young researchers and Ph.D. students. Senior scholars are invited to participate and take actively part in the discussions and give guidance to younger scholars.
The 9th Annual Meeting on Economic Geography and International Trade will take place in Dusseldorf in February or March 2018.
