Resilience and the regional sustainable economic growth impact contemporary economies, human society and economic convergence, having lately become a point of discussion in public debates. In recent years, regional sustainable growth has become a major economic issue for numerous countries, which promote resilience as a part of their inland economic policy development.
Resilient economy represents a holistic approach, which includes a wide range of concepts and frameworks that are tightly connected to the progress of human society and economy in general. In this context, developing resilience for assuring regional sustainable economic growth is becoming a useful tool for all countries, which experienced the recent economic and financial crisis.
The main aim of this Special Issue is to review the main influence of resilient economies on assuring regional sustainable economic growth. Starting from the assumption that a resilient economy both assures a high degree of sustainability for each economic system, and that it is decisive to regional development and economic flexibility, supplying a sustainable resource buffer, throughout intervals of reduced regional economic accessibility, this Special Issue tries to point out that a resilient economy could provide good and sustainable regional development growth in terms of competitiveness.
This Special Issue aims to discuss a range of topics, regarding the role of the resilience in assuring regional sustainable economic growth in contemporary economies, regarding the core values of social and circular economy, and the influence of the blue economy paradigm on the regional development of infrastructure from scientific perspectives.
We invite contributors to submit manuscripts with a high degree of novelty as full-length articles, reviews and conceptual papers, from both theoretical and practical points of view, which focus on the influences of resilience on assuring regional sustainable economic growth. All submissions will be subjected to a rigorous peer-review procedure before publication with the aim of fast dissemination of results.
