Metropolises of Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries play an important role in the European economy. They are the driving force for national development, research specialisation, knowledge production, innovation and business services. They are among the fastest growing regions in the EU, attractive for foreign investors and becoming increasingly competitive in the global (European) market place.

As economic hubs they provide benefits due to economies of scale and scope for business and local society. They generate the possibility of economic, social, and cultural development, acting as growth poles – centres of concentration of activities and creation of innovations. However, contemporary metropolises in Central and Eastern European countries face many challenges and problems. They are islands of economic development surrounded by poorly developed peripheries. Less developed areas cumulate problems and challenges of a social, environmental, spatial, infrastructural and communication nature. All this requires new approaches in the development policy at the European, national, regional and local level.

The 2019 RSA CEE conference showcases challenges, determinants and perspectives of development of different kind of metropolises and peripheries in CEE. The emphasis is on the economic performance, social, and political issues with respect to regional, national and European dimensions.
