XVII EAAE Congress
The Local Organising Committee and the Programme Committee cordially invite you to the XVII Congress of the European Association of Agricultural Economists on “Agri-Food systems in a changing world: Connecting Science and Society”.
The Congress will take place in beautiful and cosy Rennes – France, from Tuesday, August 29 until Friday, September 1, 2023. Get a glimpse.
The scientific and societal challenges for agricultural economists are huge. 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. The XVII Congress aims at contributions and interactions that can advance the scientific agenda, and at fostering the debate over effective policies and innovative strategies for agri-food system transformations.
We welcome contributed papers and posters as well as organised sessions from all fields of agricultural, food, environmental and rural economics, as well as related disciplines. For further information, visit https://eaae2023.colloque.inrae.fr

LOOKING for Organizers of the next EAAE PhD Workshop 2024
The EAAE is looking for colleagues to organize the 10th EAAE PhD workshop in 2024.
After nine very successful PhD workshops all over Europe (Wageningen, Rennes, Gießen, Nitra, Leuven, Rome, Barcelona, Uppsala, Parma), we are now looking for a location and organizers of the 10th workshop. The objective of the EAAE PhD Workshop is to give young colleagues from different countries the opportunity to present their research in a conference setting and to get feedback from peers and senior economists. A PhD workshop usually hosts 100-150 participants over 2-3 days.
Right now, we are looking for informal expression of interest to organize this workshop. While applications from all European countries are very welcome, we in particular encourage colleagues from Eastern Europe to do so. If you are interested and/or you have any further questions, please contact our Klaus Salhofer (Klaus.firstname.lastname@example.org) within the next month.
EAAE Fellow Awards
The EAAE is now seeking nominations for the Fellow Awards for the 2021‐2023 triennial period. Nominations must be received by the Secretary‐General of the Association (email@example.com) by the March 1, 2023.
The Fellow Awards program of the European Association of Agricultural Economists recognizes professional excellence in agricultural economics. The main criterion for selection is a relevant and continuous contribution to the advancement of agricultural economics in Europe. Achievements should be in research, teaching, administration and service to the profession. “Relevant and continuous” contribution means an exceptional contribution over a period of years, to be demonstrated by a combination of achievements in at least two of the following areas: research discoveries; outstanding teaching record; outstanding performance in administration; outstanding contribution to the profession through service.
Nominations can be made by one or more members of the Association.

Q Open – The Evolution of Open Access
Our new journal Q Open is now in its 2nd year. The rationale of Q Open for our profession is growing strongly. A good example is Horizon Europe (the EU’s key research and innovation funding programme until 2027) that has implemented a policy that means that research will need to be made OA on publication, and that funding will only be available to fund publication fees in full OA outlets. Furthermore, Horizon Europe funding will not support funding of research publications in hybrid journals (i.e., journals with a paywall and OA options).
It is in this context that Q Open potentially offers our profession the possibility of publishing research that meets the increasingly demanding OA requirements whilst also providing a publication platform that brings with it the necessary reputation and support, that academic researchers require in building a career. Of course, for Q Open to meet the needs of our profession it is important that Q Open grows its reputation and becomes established as a target journal for academics to publish in. It is in this context that we encourage members of the profession to seriously consider Q Open as an outlet for their high-quality research.
We realise that much hard work remains, if we are to achieve our objective of being a top-ranking field journal in the areas we cover (i.e., agricultural economics, environmental and climate economics, natural resource economics development economics and food economics) it is essential that we continue to receive the support that we already have from our colleagues. The transition to OA will not be easy for the profession and society/community-based journals. Fully OA journals have to become established in terms of Impact Factors and need to have a minimum size not to be loss-making. To transform community/society-based publishing with its advantages of good networks of authors and reviewers, linked also to congresses and seminars with special issues, we call upon society members to contribute to this transition by submitting and helping to review for Q Open.
The Q Open Editors: Iain Fraser, Erwin Bulte, Vincenzina Caputo, Phoebe Koundouri and David Lewis.
