"Time is only a kind of Space". Herbert Well



Economic development is spatially concentrated in a natural way. This simple fact has long been neglected in the mainstream economics, which lost its interest in space. Geography, however is the only strictly exogenous determinant of growth.


The birth of a new economic geography has radically changed this approach. Space has been re-discovered. Equal opportunities policy in the spatial arrangement may potentially lead to slowing down the average pace of growth.


In this area we will be particularly interested in issues related to spatial development, with particular emphasis put on sustainable development, metropolitan areas, the role of infrastructure in economic development, exchange and transport in the economy and many others.
