Sym­posium in Me­moriam Prof. Wal­ter B. Stöhr

Wal­ter B. Stöhr was one of the in­spir­ing voices of al­tern­at­ive re­gional devel­op­ment in the 1970s and 1980s. His cri­tique of top-­down ap­proaches as well as the em­phasis on en­do­gen­ous devel­op­ment po­ten­tials in­spired strategies of self-re­li­ance in peri­pheral re­gions as well as policies of re­gional in­nov­a­tion sys­tems. The Sym­posium will crit­ic­ally re­flect on the in­tel­lec­tual her­it­age of Wal­ter B. Stöhr.
