This year’s Symposium is organised by the Global Institute for Agri-Tech Economics at Harper Adams University (UK) on 18-19 September 2023.

The event will be supported by the Centre for Effective Innovation in Agriculture (CEIA) the International Society of Precision Agriculture (ISPA) Economics Community, School of Sustainable Food and Farming (HAU), and the International Network for Economic Research (INFER).

This symposium provides an opportunity for all those interested in the topic of Agri-Tech Economics for Sustainable Futures to discuss their research and to exchange ideas. Researchers are invited to submit both empirical and theoretical papers that are broadly consistent with the symposium’s special topic.
