About the EAAE

The European Association of Agricultural Economists (EAAE) brings together agricultural economists and others interested in the problems of the agricultural and food industries and rural development in Europe. The main objectives of the Association are: (a) to promote the knowledge and understanding of agricultural economics, especially in the European context and; (b) to promote the exchange of experience, ideas and information between agricultural economists.

Our principal activities include the holding of a triennial Congress on a general theme, the organization of seminars and webinars devoted to more specific subjects as well as organising a PhD training workshop for PhD students every two years. Here you will find the table of fortcoming EAAE events.

Membership of the Association provides you with the right to take part in our seminars, workshops and Congresses. In addition, you receive a monthly electronic newsletter with information on forthcoming events and other news of interest to you as an agricultural economist. As a member, you may also submit news of events that you are organising to the Newsletter which reaches an audience of approximately 1,100 agricultural economists around Europe. You can also submit information on upcoming job openings and open positions which will appear under the Job board on the home page, for non-members there is a small fee for this service. And you can also submit publications, which appear under Member’s publication on the home page. As a member, you receive free access to the electronic version of the publication EuroChoices The European Review of Agricultural Economics (ERAE) is the official journal of the Association and membership allows you to subscribe to this journal at a discount. In addition, as a member you have access to the member database which allows you to quickly identify relevant people working in your field.

The European and Applied Agricultural Economics Publications Foundation (EAAEP) acts as the publication committee of the EAAE. The EAAEP foundation owns the European Review of Agricultural Economics and the open access journal Q open. Jointly with the Agricultural Economics Society, the EAAEP publishes Eurochoices.

The EAAE is a voluntary professional association registered in the Netherlands. It is supported by the membership fees of its members. However, the Association welcomes donations which are given to support its objectives of promoting communication and interaction among agricultural economists in Europe. Donations might be used, for example, to support the attendance of PhD students at the PhD workshops or seminars, or to offer travel grants to EAAE events, or to develop specific initiatives such as outreach activities, social media initiatives and so on. If you would like to explore the possibility of giving a donation to the Association, please contact the Treasurer.
