AgriPolicy builds on the results of the previous FP6 project “CEEC AGRI POLICY” (www.agripolicy.net) which was awarded financial support by DG Research in 2004 following the call FP6-2003-SSP-3. The overall objective of the proposal is to support the formulation of Community agricultural policies. AgriPolicy has 4 specific objectives: 1. Networking and information sharing The objective is to stimulate the networking and the sharing of information between organisations involved in agri-economics analysis. The networking will be stimulated through the organisation of 3 symposia and 6 workshops and the development of a dynamic web site including an up-dated directories of experts and organisations. 2. Provide scientific input for policy making The objective is to provide analyses on a number of specific topics (8-monthly as well as “report on demand”). 3. Prepare future analysis The objective is to prepare for future policy and sectoral analyses and research by collecting quantitative and qualitative information. In the NMS, 3 monitoring reports of agricultural and rural will be prepared. In the WBC, a study on the existing availability of key agricultural and rural statistics will be prepared. 4. Develop analytical capacities The objective is to strengthen the analytical capabilities of the research organisations involved in the project in the field of policy evaluation and foresight analysis. This will be achieved by implementing training sessions as well as conducting pilot studies. AgriPolicy will be implemented by a team of experts from 24 organisations from 24 countries. The team is composed of the partners of the former project, augmented with new competencies from the “old Member States » (IAMO in Germany and LEI in the Netherlands), from Malta and from Albania, FYROM, Kosovo and Montenegro.
