ReGrowEU project
Rationale Over the last decades, the notion of resilience has gained popularity in several fields, such as economics, urban planning, regional science, environmental studies, governance, geopolitics or international affairs. The main idea behind this concept is that a region, or any territorial/ economic/social/political system may be subject to various shocks and/or pressures that produce transformations in the system. However, not all the systems manage in the same way to recover after a shock; therefore, the challenging task for scholars is to identify the factors contributing to the appropriate responses of those systems that leads to recovery or even better to further development and improvement. The resilience concept has been applied mainly in studies on the impact of environment and economy-related shocks on territorial development, although the potential of interdisciplinary approaches for analysing, identifying, and providing solutions in the field is much greater. Given the complexity of such phenomena, new approaches, patterns and analysis techniques are required in order to properly tackle the issue of resilience thinking and to increase the added value of research, thus transferring the emerging academic views to the policy-making responsible. The workshop is organised by the Centre for European Studies (interdisciplinary department of the Faculty of Law) of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi (Romania), in cooperation with Bucharest University of Economic Studies and Babes Bolyai University (Department of Public Administration and Management/ Faculty of Political, Administrative and Communication Sciences), in the framework of the CNCSIS-UEFISCI RegrowEU - Advancing ground-breaking research in regional growth and development theories, through a resilience approach: towards a convergent, balanced and sustainable European Union - project aiming to bring together new theoretical approaches and empirical research results on regional resilience and policies, territorial planning, geopolitics and EU actorness. The contributions will be considering for publishing in the special issue “Spatial policies for resilience and smart transformation”, having as guest editors Karima Kourtit and Peter Nijkamp (deadline for the full papers: January 15, 2021).
