Evolutionary Economic Geography In Central And Eastern Europe
Evolutionary economic geography (EEG) has experienced a dynamic boost: an inter-disciplinary mix of geographers, regional scientists and economists are applying new concepts and tools to describe regional economic dynamics. This paper provides an review on the Workshop on “Evolutionary Economic Geography in Central and Eastern Europe” (Budapest, November 11–15, 2013). In short, the Workshop provided an overview of the EEG concepts and quantitative tools mainly through a series of lectures by Ron Boschma (Director, CIRCLE, Lund University and Professor, Utrecht University) and, at the same time, served as a platform for young CEE researchers aiming to contribute to the EEG literature and to understand the complex regional dynamics of economic progress.
The Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach regularly organizes workshops in all fields of Mathematics. Their aim is to offer 45–48 experts, invited by the Institute's Director, the opportunity to present recent research results, especially new methods, and to initiate future research projects. A great number of important papers have been initiated at Oberwolfach due to informal talks and discussions in small groups. Contrary to the typically large conferences all over the world, workshops at Oberwolfach emphasize active research. The Oberwolfach Reports are meant to capture, in an informal manner, the characteristic ideas and discussions of these workshops. As a service to the community, they are now offered by the Institute, at a nominal price, and allow the public to partake in the lively and stimulating atmosphere of these meetings. While the peer-reviewed results will appear elsewhere, the Oberwolfach Reports will keep the reader abreast of current developments and open problems, and serve as an indispensable source of information for the active mathematician.
This article covers possible ways of implementing intersubject relations in foreign language class as a reflection of modern trends for integration of science and practice and a way to fulfill the tasks set by modern education concepts.
We study the dynamics of inter-regional disparities for a number of characteristics of development, test the hypothesis of the new economic geography. The empirical analysis shows the spatial concentration of economic activity is continuing in Russia and the rate of inter-regional divergence, is rather high. The factors of the spatial concentration and regional disparities in Russia are population density, size and accessibility of markets, as well as the level of diversification and industry structure of the economy.
The evolution of a special research branch is investigated and described - economic geography, from its origin phase to the up-to-date time.
