Every three years the EAAE organises a congress with a general theme in the broad field of agricultural economics. This year, the congress is focused in “Agri-food systems in a changing world: Connecting science and society”.
Agri-food systems have an important role to play in a changing world. The consequences of climate change are increasingly tangible and our planetary boundaries are increasingly at risk of being crossed. As scientists, we need to create and share insights on how to transform agri-food systems into sustainable and resilient systems that increase prosperity in Europe and across the globe. Connecting science and society implies that agricultural economists push the boundaries of science and research to create societal impact.
