Welcome to the Uddevalla Symposium website!

The symposium is designed to bring together leading-edge views of senior academic scholars and mix them with the critical and creative views of post-docs and PhD students engaged in their thesis work.

Following the tradition established by the previous symposia, starting in 1998, we welcome researchers from various fields, such as economic geography, entrepreneurship, international business, management, political science, regional economics, small business economics, sociology and urban and regional planning.


Regional seminars with actual research from the Uddevalla Symposia.

Each year we regularly organize regional seminars at University West to which we invite regional actors to seminars in order to get knowledge on actual research results from recent Uddevalla Symposia.


The Regional Seminar on October 8th, 2018 in Fiskebäckskil, Sweden, has unfortunalety been cancelled. A new date will be announced in spring 2019.
