IAMO Forum 2018
27 June 2018 - IAMO Forum 2018 will deal with "Large-scale agriculture – for profit and society?" and is to be held at IAMO in Halle (Saale), Germany, from 27 to 29 June 2018. The conference presents insights into the drivers, perspectives and challenges of large-scale farming and the increasing role of stakeholder interests.
Agricultural production in transition and, increasingly, in developed and emerging economies is moving to larger farms. Highly integrated industrial-scale enterprises often operating on hundreds of thousands of hectares of farmland set new standards for agricultural business and increasingly attract growing interest from non-agricultural investors. The IAMO Forum 2018 provides a platform for research that investigates the economic, managerial and social aspects of large-scale agriculture as well as institutional frameworks that enable the persistence of large agricultural enterprises. The conference’s geographical focus is on the transition countries of Eastern Europe, the Former Soviet Union, and East Asia as well as developed and emerging market economies in Europe, America and Australia.
IAMO Forum 2018 provides latest research results and platforms for discussion and exchange between research and agricultural practice. The three days program includes three plenary sessions, various parallel sessions and moderated podium discussions.
On the third conference day, 29 June 2018, representatives from international agribusiness share their experiences with the audience and discuss them with scientists, policy and civil society representatives. Numerous nationally and internationally recognized speakers from academia, agribusiness and international institutions contribute to the conference.
Conference language will be English. Simultaneous interpretation for the third conference day on Friday, 29 June 2018, will be provided (English – German).
The IAMO Forum 2018 is jointly organized by the Department of Structural Development of Farms and Rural Areas of IAMO, DLG e.V. and the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club (UCAB).
