The OECD Spatial Productivity Lab (SPL)

The OECD Spatial Productivity Lab (SPL) is a dedicated research laboratory that works with local and global partners to advance knowledge about the ways regional policy and a better understanding of spatial links can improve productivity growth and thereby the creation of better jobs and well-being.

The OECD Spatial Productivity Lab is a part of the OECD Trento Centre for Local Development, which is an integral part of the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities. The mission of the Trento Centre is to build capacities for local development in OECD member and non-member countries, working directly with policy makers at all levels of government.

The Regional Studies Association

The RSA publishes academic journals, book series, an online magazine and blog, funds research and awards excellence in the field, delivers knowledge exchange and provides networking opportunities and trainings for its global community.

The Regional Studies Association’s monthly Regions Cities Industry Webinar Series presents experts in the field of regional studies, science and policy and includes time for discussion and questions.
