The Regional Studies Association wishes all its members and friends a Happy New Year. Whether or not you believe in the Mayan predictions regarding the end of the world, we hope that you have a year full of accomplishments and fruitful events!

This will also be a busy year for the Regional Studies Association. For the first time in our history we will organize a global conference outside the EU. The RSA Global Conference will take place in Beijing between the 24th and the 27th of June. More information is available here. This is an exciting event for us that we hope many of you will attend.

Earlier in the year, we will also organize our Regional Studies Association European Conference in Delft, Netherlands. This event will run between the 13th and the 16th of May under the theme: Networked regions and cities in times of fragmentation: developing smart, sustainable and inclusive places. Last year’s conference in Newcastle was a success and we count on you to help us deliver a strong presence in this year’s event.

We would also like to remind you that the RSA now has a range of funding opportunities available to its members. Please find more information on our website. And don’t forget to read our blog to learn more about the opening of an RSA office at the University of California – Los Angeles in the USA.
