I would like to share with you some very interesting events and calls just around the corner.
The Wageningen School of Social Sciences (WASS) is organizing a summer school on “Risk Analysis and Risk Management in Agriculture: Updates on Modelling and Applications” to take place next 26-30th August 2019. Participants will learn theories concerning risk analysis and risk coping strategies and will develop proficiency with software to facilitate the initiation of their own research in topics related to risk in agriculture. The course deals with both conceptual and methodological issues. The course is oriented toward Ph.D. candidates, postdoctoral researchers and others with a background in agricultural and applied economics.
