Fully funded PhD studentship available in the Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies (CURDS), Newcastle University
The question of how new regional economic growth paths emerge has been identified as one of the most challenging in economic geography and spatial economics. This PhD focuses on path creation in the context of energy transitions and the growth of the offshore wind sector. The research offers the potential for an innovative comparative analysis of path creation in two leading regions - Fujian and Northern England- of the world's largest offshore wind markets. The work seeks to better understand the geographically varied nature of path creation by examining the mechanisms, multi-scalar institutional contexts and Global Production Network dynamics involved.
