Congratulations to our founder, Professor Michael Batty, who has been elected as a fellow of the Regional Science Association. RSAI (The Regional Science Association International) Fellows are distinguished scholars with a proven and recognized research record in the field of regional science during a considerable part of their scientific career. The RSAI fellowship is a world-wide sign of scientific recognition that is bestowed on a regional scientist with outstanding research credentials in his/her field.

Founded in 1954, the Regional Science Association International (RSAI) is an international community of scholars interested in the regional impacts of national or global processes of economic and social change. The work of RSAI draws on the expertise of many different disciplines and this multi-disciplinary approach helps to facilitate new theoretical insights for tackling regional problems. In turn this provides an increasing opportunity for academics within the Association to engage more fully with planners and policy makers. Building on a strong foundation of quantitative methods, regional science is at the cutting edge of research into new model design for regional analysis and impact assessment.
