The 6th Summer Institute in Economic Geography will take place in Zurich, July 1-7, 2012.
The Summer Institute is open to early-career researchers in economic geography, broadly defined (doctoral students at or beyond the fieldwork stage; postdoctoral researchers in universities, think tanks and research institutes; and lecturers or tenure-track faculty within the first three years of appointment).
Local costs will be covered, and travel stipends are available for some participants (with priority given to graduate students and to those traveling from outside Western Europe or North America).
Applications must be received by January 31, 2012. Application forms and further details can be found at the Summer Institute web site.
