Organized by the RegPol2 consortium and the project partners from the Babeș-Bolyai University (UBB), a RegPol2 workshop took place from January 22-24, 2017 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The workshop focused on the research results related to peripheralization in Central-Eastern Europe that were achieved in the framework of the RegPol2 project. It provided the opportunity to learn how to present the results to academics and policy makers as well as to compare own results with others, who have researched on the same field in different countries. Additionally, the workshop offered the possibility to visit the peripheries of Cluj Metropolitan Area as well as new development projects such as the Liberty Technology Park. During the workshop, Geomedia consultant Rivo Noorkõiv and PhD student Bianka Plüschke-Altof held two presentations, which focused on the regional development context in Estonia as well as on the possibilities and challenges of researching spatial images.
