Convinced that youth is the most dynamic part of our society the Regional Growth Conference enables dozens of young people to take part in the RGC experience by participating in the largest event on Regional Development.
For this year’s annual conference, the RGC 2022, which will take place from June 9th-11th in Patras at the Conference and Cultural Centre of the University of Patras, will collaborate with the University of Patras and the University of Peloponnese, and will be offering free educational activities aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students.
More specifically, every year the RGC, together with the University of Patras, organizes a four-day Summer Workshop. The topic of this year’s Workshop is “Regional Governance: Policies for Nature Conservation, Sustainability and Resilience”, and it has been designed to offer an interdisciplinary approach to the above topic through lectures, presentations, group works and on-site visits in relative local business and organizations in order to offer to the students combined theoretical and empirical knowledge.
Furthermore, for its 3rd consecutive year of co-operation with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of the Peloponnese, the RGC will be organizing a Summer School, which will take an in depth look at “Intelligent Cities: Technologies and Services of Smart Information Systems”. The first days of the 6-day long Summer School will be held online, while from 9th to 11th of June, it will be hosted at Achaia Clauss, in parallel with the Conference.
Apart from participating in educational activities, at the RGC 2022 students have the opportunity to meet important personalities from Greece and abroad, and attend keynote speeches, sessions and interviews.
