The event is organised in honour of Geoffrey J.D. Hewings, Professor of Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and member of WIFO’s Scientific Board. Prof. Hewings has published numerous scientific contributions in fields like economics, economic geography, urban and regional planning, input-output analysis and others and is always eager to share his knowledge and give advice to younger scholars.


The 6th WIFO Regional Economics Workshop will focus on topics around the regional dimension of the central research question dealt within the project WWWforEurope and aims at bringing together researchers from various fields of economics but working mainly at the regional level to discuss ideas and exchange knowledge.

In April 2012 WWWforEurope started as a four year research project within the 7th Framework Programme funded by the European Commission involving 33 partner institutes under the lead of WIFO. The research areas center around the question of what kind of new European growth and development strategy is necessary and feasible, enabling a socio-ecological transition to high levels of employment, well-being of citizens, social inclusion, resilience of ecological systems and a significant contribution to the global common goods like climate stability.
