Economic Geography

Economic Geography studies the spatial organization of economic activities. And, at the same time, it assesses how cities and regions act as places of opportunity or restrictions for economic activities. We specialize in understanding spatial economic behavior of firms and people: Where do people live, study, work, start businesses and why? How does this relate to spatial mobility, housing and transport? Our insights in spatial behavior are then used to analyze socio-economic regional disparities in terms of production, income and employment as well as more encompassing development concepts including happiness and well-being.
