185th EAAE Seminar
AgEconMeet - Early career development seminar for agricultural economists in Europe
05/10/2022 – 07/10/2022 Göttingen, Germany
Objectives & Topics
Our seminar will therefore be organized around three pillars:
Recent developments in data and methods
We offer a platform to present and give feedback on papers that present emerging methods, datasets and approaches in the field of agricultural economics. We particularly welcome paper and project proposal presentations with a general focus on:
Methodological developments such a survey and preference elicitation, econometrics, machine learning, simulation methods
The possibilities of emerging data such as economic or production process related farm-, firm- or consumer level data, commodity price data, environmental data
Yet also papers in other areas and approaches that show a promising direction for the profession are highly welcomed.
The future of agricultural economic/sts
In this second pillar we want to open the discussion on where the profession of agricultural economics should be going. What is the role of agricultural economics in the broader scientific community, what are areas of promising future research, how can we interact with policy makers and society?
Networking with peers
Finally, the seminar programme foresees plenty of time for networking and innovative formats to strengthen interaction, promote peer coaching, pitch research ideas and develop new collaborations.

Venue & Travel
We are looking forward to welcoming you in the Paulinerkirche, located in the historical old-town of Göttingen. The Pauliner Church is one of the most significant old historical sites in the Lower Saxony State. This Gothic hall church was originally laid out as a monastery in 1304. It was dissolved as a monetary and used as a secondary school in 1542 and then became the nucleus of the Georg-August University, which was opened in 1737. The church is currently used by the University of Göttingen and the state of Lower Saxony as an academic, cultural, and exhibition center. The venue is in walking distance from Göttingen main station.
