The workshop focuses on quantitative methods and analysis of urban areas. The aim is to connect economists, sociologists, geographers, management scholars, and policy makers with advanced practice interested in urban economics. Bringing together leading experts, promising young researchers and advanced practitioners, the workshop offers an opportunity for scientific discussion and interaction in relatively small groups. Kraks Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research is an independent research unit under the Kraks Fond. Results of Kraks projects are available to decision makers, the general public, and researchers alike http://kraksfondbyforskning.dk/en/publications/.
Register for the event here. There is no workshop fee. Registration will be confirmed by email. Please wait for confirmation before making travel or accommodation arrangements.
Kraks Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research is a non-profit foundation, and there is no workshop fee. However, confirmed registration is necessary to attend the workshop. The workshop organizers aim to ensure participation of all who desire to attend the workshop, but to facilitate in-depth discussion the number of participants is limited to 40. Attendance may therefore have to be restricted. The organizers will aim at a certain balance between countries and institutions. We may therefore not be able to accept additional registrations.
Confirmed registration gives full access to the entire event including catering, lunch at the conference venue, and the farewell reception. The farewell reception takes place after the workshop and is aimed to promote networking between professionals.

The workshop on new developments in the analysis of residential location choice is organized by the Kraks Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research.
Kraks Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research is an independent research unit under the Kraks Fond. The Kraks Fond – Institute covers a research field of economic, sociological, and geographical issues. Results are available to decision makers, the general public, and researchers alike.
Fæstningens Materialgård (the Fortifications Depot) is located in the historic center of Copenhagen. The complex, which has heritage status, encloses a small oasis with roses and magnolias and was home to the Ministry of Defense for more than 250 years up till 2007.
As a part of Bryghusområdet (the Brewery Site), the Fortifications Depot stands along Frederiksholms Kanal, with Christiansborg Palace, the King’s Brewery and the Royal Library as its nearest neighbors. Furthermore, a new architectural site is being constructed. The new prestigious building is designed by Rem Koolhaas from OMA and aims to connect the city center to the Copenhagen harbor.
Kraks Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research has been located in the Fortifications Depot since October 2014 together with the Danish Architecture Centre, Danish Design Centre, Copenhagen Solution Lab, INDEX and IFHP (The International Federation for Housing and Planning) and more companies and organisations are to come. The aim of this cluster is to create a national platform for the development and international exposure of Danish architecture, construction, urban development, design and urban research.
