On the 21st of January, 2016 the RegPol² partners from the Research Centre for Economic and Regional Studies of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (CERS HAS) organized a national workshop on regional polarization in Békéscsaba/Hungary. Among the participants were local researchers and students from the Research Centre, the University of Szeged and Szent Istvan University in Hungary as well as three Early Stage Researchers from the RegPol² initial training network. In the course of his secondment at CERS HAS, Bradley Loewen gave a public lecture introducing the first results of his research project on “Path contingency and path innovation of regional policies in old and new economy locations”. Furthermore, Sebastian Schulz (University of Tartu) and Bianka Plüschke-Altof (Geomedia OÜ) were invited to discuss their research on “Regional innovation policies” and “Peripheralization discourses”. After the lectures, the attendants had the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the topics with the presenters.
