Fostering research in Economic Geography
The Economic Geography Research Group aims to foster research and its dissemination in economic geography by organising meetings, developing contact and cooperation among geographers and other social scientists, and promoting the publication of research.
Every year we sponsor a wide range of sessions - both solely and in collaboration with other research groups - at the annual RGS-IBG Conference.
Each summer we organise two back-to-back symposia - a postgraduate event and a themed cutting-edge research meeting.
Three prizes of £100 are offered each year to the best PhD thesis, Masters thesis, and EGRG Working Paper in economic geography.
The Working Paper Series features theoretically-informed and original research in economic geography.
We feature book reviews of interest to economic geographers. The aim is to cut the time lag between the publication of a book and the appearance of the review in academic journals.
We have developed a valuable on-line resource in the form of links and gateways to sites of interest.
