The 2019 European Social Innovation Competition

Dear university staff,

I am contacting you on behalf of the European Commission. The application window for the 2019 European Social Innovation Competition is now open and I think students at your university would be very interested in participating.

Successful applicants will receive training from experts and a chance of winning one of three 50,000 EUR prizes.

This year’s theme is “Challenging Plastic Waste” - all you need to apply is an idea for how we can reduce the amount of plastic waste that society produces.

For more details and to apply, please see the competition website: https://eusic.challenges.org

Now here’s where we request your support. Do you have a university / departmental newsletter or social media presence?

We would really appreciate it if you could post information about the competition on any of your channels. You can find all relevant material here.

Alternatively, we would be happy to tailor the material to fit your institution’s style – please just let me know.

Thank you in advance for you support.


Best regards,

Andrew Bennett

The Department of Human Geography and Regional Studies, Faculty of Geology, Geography, Recreation and Tourism, V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University (Ukraine) invites you and your colleagues to take part in the International Scientific and Practical Conference for Students, PhD students and Young Scientist «Region-2019: Human-Geographical Aspects» (April 11-12, 2019) and to publish your papers in the scientific journal «JOURNAL OF HUMAN GEOGRAPHY», included in the scientometric bases Index Copernicus, Ulrich's Periodicals Directory, Google Scholar, InfoBase Index, Eurasian Scientific Journal Index, Scientific Indexing Services, Cite Factor, Research Bible, OAJI, ERIH PLUS, DOAJ, processing in Web of Science.

Requirements to manuscripts see the following:


Manuscripts should be written in English.

Deadline for submission materials for the conference – March 20, 2019.

Deadline for submission papers to the journal – April 15, 2019.

Also we offer you to familiarize with research fields of the department.

Our department deals with researches in the field of human (social) geography, regional development and territory planning, geodemography and urban geography, social development monitoring, estimation of tourist and recreational potential and tourist activity optimization, etc.

Among the directions of the department's work, it is necessary to highlight the following research:

· migration processes in Ukraine and the world; their causes and socio-economic consequences, forecasting and modeling of migration processes. The search for ways to regulate the migration of the population, the problems of settlers, ways to solve them, peculiarities of the settlers adaptation, their socioeconomic security, etc.;

· planning of urban space, zoning of the territory in accordance with its functional features, ways to optimize the city's infrastructure in accordance with the needs of population and economy, identifying possible ways and recommendations for the formation of cities as "smart-city", "creative-city", "green -city», «inclusive cities», etc.;

· research of the tourist and recreational potential of the region, development of various types of tourism, including green tourism, rural tourist estates, infrastructure changes in rural areas; 

· territorial organization of rural areas of the region, problems of depressed rural areas, solutions, optimization of agricultural production in a region based on the development of farming, attracting investment, justifying the change in the specialization of agricultural production, prospects for farmingdevelopment, justifying new directions for development, improving infrastructure, etc. ;

· GIS in education and science, application of GIS technologies, work with GIS tools;

· Development of methodology for human geography.

Our department participated in the development Kharkiv Development Strategy-2020, especially in such directions: population and region’s settlement system, educational system and healthcare, social infrastructure and population social security, cross-border cooperation, agriculture and agro-industrial complex, tourist attractiveness of a territory.

We have worked out a list of original methods:

· spatial analysis – construction the surface of interaction and spatial impact of the socio-geographical objects (settlements of different ranks, separate elements of the social and industrial infrastructure, etc.).

· analysis the state, dynamic and development monitoring of the socio-geographical objects (modeling of trajectory development, identification the level and pace development, deviations from the optimal trajectory, progressive and regressive development phases, correction of the managed decisions;

· multidimension classification of socio-geographical system on different system development indicators (estimation the systems evolution potential, specialization of systems, specificity of development).

The indicated methods were tested by our researchers, PhD students and doctoral students in the researches of region’s social and demographical development, investment attractiveness and territory competitiveness, cross-border cooperation, depressive and old industrial regions development, agriculture and ecologically balanced husbandry, tourist and recreational potential, transport system, educational system, healthcare, religion and cultural sphere, geoecological situation, infrastructure with use of GIS-technologies, etc.

We are interested in organizing the common conferences, workshops, implementing the common research projects, publishing common articles, participation in the projects of academic mobility (i.e. Erasmus+).

If some of the listed directions or activities are similar to yours we will glad to cooperate. If you have other ideas of cooperation, please, contact us.
