Large Farm Management 2013: Know-how for large agricultural holdings

21.08.2013
International conference in Kiev, Ukraine, 19-20 September 2013

More than 500 participants are anticipated to attend the international conference ‘Large Farm Management: Organization and Strategy’ in Kiev, Ukraine, on 19 and 20 September. The event will be held for the fourth time and is deemed in CIS states and in Europe as the leading forum for discussing issues and problems of large farm management.

The conference is hosted by the Association Ukrainian Agribusiness Club (UCAB) with support of IAMO and the Federation of German Industries' Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations. Interested parties are invited to register.

High-profile keynote speakers will introduce four panel discussions which will deal with the following main topics:

• Global development trends in agricultural productivity: What is the importance of farm size?
• Productivity and know-how: How to achieve maximum yields?
• Human resources: Successful qualified staff recruitment and retention schemes
• Effective governance structures for modern agribusiness: Priorities and challenges

A field trip is scheduled for the second conference day. Participants will visit the Industrial Milk Company, an agricultural holding with properties of 140 000 hectares of land and 3 000 dairy cows. In addition, the conference provides opportunities of meeting and discussing with many senior executives and representatives of farm businesses, food producers, government and research institutions.

Detailed information about the conference program, conference fees and registration formalities are provided in the program (http://www.iamo.de/uploads/media/Large_Farm_Management_2013_PROGRAM_EN.PDF) and in the conference website at:

About IAMO
The Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe (IAMO) analyses economic, social and political processes of change in the agricultural and food sector, and in rural areas. The geographic focus covers the enlarging EU, transition regions of Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe, as well as Central and Eastern Asia. IAMO is making a contribution towards enhancing understanding of institutional, structural and technological changes. Moreover, IAMO is studying the resulting impacts on the agricultural and food sector as well as the living conditions of rural populations. The outcomes of our work are used to derive and analyse strategies and options for enterprises, agricultural markets and politics. Since its foundation in 1994, IAMO has been part of the Leibniz Association, a German community of independent research institutes.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
