PREPARE, the "Priority European Programme in Advanced Regional Economics" offers an integrated structure of training, active participation, and discussion for PhD students and young researchers in regional science. The programme is funded by the European Union through its Marie Curie Actions and is held in close cooperation with the European Regional Science Association (ERSA).
PREPARE continues and expands the well established ERSA summer institutes. The main activity of PREPARE is a series of four such summer institutes, each with a thematic focus and held in a different city.
