Vision & Mission

Our vision is to strengthen the future generation of agricultural economists in Europe. We facilitate early-career development for researchers who work on agrifood topics (agricultural economics and related fields such as environmental, development, and food economics or sciences). Everyone is welcome to join, irrespective of their (academic) age, nationality, position, or research topic—if they self-identify as an early-career agricultural economist or would like to interact with those who do.

In our monthly online meetings, we unravel the hidden curriculum of agricultural economics in terms of job market preparation, networking, publishing, upcoming methods and data, and acquiring research funding. We provide an informal platform to exchange ideas, share experiences, and meet colleagues at other institutions, for example at the main agricultural economics conferences.
