The City of Heidenheim (Germany) and the August Lösch Association jointly grant the August Lösch Prize 2022.
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 Heidenheim citizen. (For an obituary on August Lösch, a history of the prize and previous prize winners, click here.)
The prize is meant to reward outstanding academic research in the field of Regional Science, and carries an award of Euro 4000. Joint recipients will share this amount.
The Association now invites submissions of research written in either German or English. The prize will be presented at the 2022 meeting of the German-speaking section of the European Regional Science Association (ERSA) meeting in Schwerin, Germany, June 16th 2022.
The prize recipient (or the prize recipients) will be chosen by an international committee consisting of Kristian Behrens, Rainald Borck, Kristof Dascher, Hans Koster, Gunther Maier, Annekatrin Niebuhr, Matthias Premer, Javier Revilla-Diez, Andres Rodriguez-Pose and Roger Vickerman.
