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/.

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.

The farewell reception takes place after the workshop and is aimed to promote networking between professionals.
