The conference title was “Food Policy Modelling as an Effective and Expeditious Response to Today’s Urgent Issues” and was mainly focused on bringing together ideas to assist policy-making decisions in agriculture and the agri-food industry.

They presented their work in the session “Food Security and Food Choices”, where they analysed the contexts in which the innovation on CAP Food Surplus withdrawals from Emilia-Romagna Region can be potentially implemented. They had a very fruitful discussion. 

The audience was mainly composed of Agricultural Economists, and they had the possibility to attend several sessions on different aspects of the agri-food systems like Innovation and ICT in agriculture; Dealing with Future Challenges in Agriculture; Modelling Tools for Policy Analysis.
