The 179th Seminar organized by the European Association of Agricultural Economists (EAAE) for its members, was titled “Food Policy Modelling as an Effective and Expeditious Response to Today’s Urgent Issues”, hosted by the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (MAICh) and sponsored by the Geotechnical Chamber of Greece.
The conference aimed at facilitating exchange of ideas, presentation of concepts and tools that use modeling techniques and state-of-the-art modeling developments to support policymaking and policy design in the sectors of agriculture and agri-food. Recent urgent issues and socio-economic phenomena require direct responses and well-targeted policies. Modeling can provide the means to assess policy impact, efficiency and the underlying socio-environmental conditions, and design new policies that can optimally respond to those issues, and achieve the objectives set on a political level.
EXELISIS attended the conference with great interest to discuss the latest developments in the sector and disseminate the progress and methodologies used in our EU-funded, open-source AGRICORE project.
