August Lösch Prize 2018


The City of Heidenheim an der Brenz and the August Lösch Association jointly grant the prestigious August Lösch Prize 2018.

The prize was created in 1971 and first awarded in 1972 by the City of Heidenheim in honour of August Lösch (1906-1945), one of the founders of modern Regional Science, and a former citizen of Heidenheim.

The prize is intended to reward outstanding academic research in the field of Regional Science. The prize carries an award of Euro 4000. Joint recipients will share this amount.

The Association invites the submission of research work written in either German or English. The prize will be presented at the 2018 meeting of the “Gesellschaft für Regionalforschung”, the German Speaking Section of the European Regional Science Association (ERSA), in Berlin, Sept. 6/7.

The winner, or the winners, will be selected by an international committee headed by Johannes Bröcker (University of Kiel, Germany) and Kristof Dascher (University of Regensburg, Germany).
