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: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
