Over the summer period, two papers have been published that have had involvement from a number of CCRI researchers. Dan Keech is co-author on a paper that will be available next year, whilst Damian Maye, Julie Urquhart and Mauro Vigani contributed to a paper associated with the SURE-Farm project.
Another book publication success for researchers in CCRI. Mauro Vigani, Janet Dwyer and John Powell have contributed to a new book analysing agricultural labour markets and policies in EU and North America.
CCRI’s Julie Ingram will present a seminar detailing research she conducted in Australia and Indonesia on the topic of enabling farmer adaptation and learning.
Julie Ingram and Hannah Chiswell will be helping to present the findings of the Agridemo project at the final project conference this week in Brussels.
More publication success for the CCRI with the acceptance of an article into a journal and a new book going into production.
The latest paper from Julie Ingram, with Pete Gaskell as co-author has been published in NJAS – Wageningen Journal of Life Sciences. The paper reports on findings from four case-studies across Europe as part of the EU FP7 funded project ‘VALERIE’.
Next week Damian Maye will travel to Brussels and present findings from the SUFISA project to DG Agri at the European Commission.
