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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
