Konferenz: 7th Transnational Rhine Conference

Die 7th Transnational Rhine Conference: Entrepreneurship and Transformation of the Rhine Economy findet vom 21. bis 23. September 2017 an der Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf statt.

Aus der Tagungsankündigung:

The Rhine has always been an important locational factor for entrepreneurial behaviour, since its navigable part between Mannheim and Rotterdam allowed cost-effective shipping of bulky and heavy goods that otherwise were hardly tradable over longer distances. Commerce and trade found great opportunities there. Industries close to the river were thus favoured, and particularly those areas that were endowed with appropriate resources (wood, soft water for bleaching, ore deposits, clay, etc.) became hotbeds of entrepreneurship in the modern period.
