Economic Geography Studio 2019: Innovation and creativity in mountain and rural areas

In the studio, current topics in economic geography are empirically processed and, if possible, published. Students thereby gain a practical insight into empirical social research and are in exchange with the practice.

Leadership: Dr. Rahel Meili

Students developed case studies about innovative projects and companies in the Swiss mountain region. In cooperation with the Swiss Working Group for Mountain Regions, the student works were published as articles in the journal Montagna.
