The XVI Congress of the European Association of Agricultural Economists, EAAE will take place from 20-23 July 2021 in a format that will be decided later in the Spring of 2021 in view of the Covid-19 situation. The Local Organising Committee and the Programme Committee are striving to arrange a stimulating and innovative programme consisting of invited plenary presentations, invited panels, organised sessions, organised panels, contributed papers and posters as well as field trips. The Congress aims to stimulate interaction among a broad range of stakeholders of the food chain. In particular, policy makers, societal stakeholders and agribusiness representatives shall contribute to the programme through organised panels which have an open format and do not require a scientific paper. The deadline for Organised Panels and Session is February 15, and for Posters is March 1, 2021.
The 10th AIEAA Conference will be held virtually, 9-11 June 2021 "Agriculture, food and global value chains: Issues, methods and challenges".

AIEAA welcomes the submission of contributions on the topics above. However, the submission of contributions on other agricultural and applied economics topics is also encouraged.
