The project "Places that don't matter? Socio-economic transformation of industrial towns in Switzerland and Slovenia" deals with small- and medium-sized towns (SMSTs) and their various socio-economic transformation paths. So far, economic geography has paid far too little attention to SMSTs. Our research follows a case study design, with an in-depth analysis of six towns, three in each participating country—Slovenia and Switzerland. In Switzerland, we focus on Biel/Bienne, Mendrisio and Glarus. We collaborate with colleagues from the Anton Melik Geographical Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
