Institutional economics is focus of IAMO Forum 2010

28.04.2010
IAMO Forum 2010 to take place from 16-18 June in Halle, Germany

From 16-18 June 2010 the Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe (IAMO) is again hosting the IAMO Forum. This year the international conference titled „Institutions in Transition – Challenges for New Modes of Governance“ deals with institutional economics.

Recently, broader attention was brought to this field of economics, which focuses on the interrelations between economics and institutions of a society, when the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to Prof. Dr. Elinor Ostrom and Prof. Dr. Oliver Williamson, two institutional economists.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS FROM IFPRI, FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY AND THE EU
Conference guests can expect an interesting programme. In three plenary sessions the IAMO Forum will highlight the issues governance in natural resource management, formulation and design of policies and new theoretical developments in analysing rural institutions. Amongst others PD Dr. Regina Birner from IFPRI (The International Food Policy Research Institute, Washington D.C.) will give a talk on „Biodiversity governance: policies and issues”.

Birner, who is head of the IFPRI research programme „Governance for Agriculture and Rural Development”, is a well-know expert in the field of political economics, agricultural policies and governance of natural resources. Further keynote speaker is Dr. Eric A. Coleman, Research Associate at the Institute of Political Economics of the Florida State University. The expert for common forestry management and the institutionalisation of rules in groups presents at the IAMO Forum 2010 his ideas on „The policentricity concept applied to natural resource management”. Also, representatives of politics join the conference.

Dr. Anastassios Haniotis, Head of the Department „Agricultural policy analysis and perspectives“ of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development, is to speak on „The instrument of ex-ante impact assessment of agricultural and rural EU policies – current state and future perspectives”.

SUCCESSFUL MANAGEMENT OF STATE-OWNED AGRICULTURAL LAND
As a special session organised by BVVG (Bodenverwertungs- und -verwaltungs) GmbH together with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) and IAMO there will be a panel discussion at the IAMO Forum 2010 (16 June, 4pm). The discussion aims at pointing out the importance and the challenges of a sound and effective state-land management (in the agricultural sphere) in the light of environmental, economic and social drivers. Well-known experts in this field will identify and discuss instruments and methods suitable for dealing with these challenges. Case studies from Mongolia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Eastern Germany are to be presented. Amongst others Harald Finkelmeyer is to introduce the GTZ project „Land Management in Mongolia“ and Katja Dells, from BVVG, will on the one hand shed a light on the privatisation process of state-owned agricultural land in Eastern Germany and on the other hand speak about the management of the remaining state-owned agricultural land.
EARLY BIRD CONFERENCE TICKET AVAILABLE UNTIL 14 MAY 2010
Until 14 May 2010 the early bird conference ticket for a price of 180 EUR is available. Interested participants are asked to register via the conference homepage http://forum2010.iamo.de/, where one can also find more information on the IAMO Forum 2010. The conference titled „Institutions in Transition – Challenges for New Modes of Governance“ is to take place from 16-18 June 2010 at the IAMO in Halle, Germany. The Forum 2010 is supported by the German Research Foundation, BIONADE Ltd. and the Obsthof am Süßen See.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
