Submissions are now open!
Event website: https://eaae175.sustainabilitystandards.it/
Event contact: eaae175@sustainabilitystandards.it

The objective of the seminar is to improve the understanding of sustainability standards and their effects on agricultural, food, and bio-based value chains. The seminar focuses on public and private sustainability standards. Both drivers and implications of their emergence are of interest, with emphasis on the economic, governance and policy perspectives. Emphasis is both on theoretical and empirical applications.

We are pleased to partner with Applied Economic Perspectives and Policy (AEPP), a journal of the Agricultural and Applied Economic Association (AAEA), for the work coming out of this seminar. Out of the papers accepted for the seminar, we anticipate publishing between 8 and 12 papers. This will compose a Special Issue that will be extensively promoted by the conference organizers, EAAE, AAEA, AEPP, and Wiley (the publisher of AEPP).

Confirmed keynotes speakers are:
  • Prof. Miet Maertens - KU Leuven
  • Prof. Ian Sheldon - The Ohio State University
  • Prof. Sofia Villas-Boas – UC Berkeley
The main topics of the Seminar are listed here. Participants will have the opportunity to present a paper, a poster or organize thematic sessions on the topics of the seminar.

The Seminar is jointly organized by the Università degli Studi di Milano (Department of Environmental Science and Policy) and the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Department of Agri-food Economics).
