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: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...

Im Focus: New nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

Hybrid material converts more sunlight and can weather seawater's harsh conditions

It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF...

Im Focus: Small collisions make big impact on Mercury's thin atmosphere

Mercury, our smallest planetary neighbor, has very little to call an atmosphere, but it does have a strange weather pattern: morning micro-meteor showers.

Recent modeling along with previously published results from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft -- short for Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and...
