Leibniz-Institut für Agrarentwicklung in Transformationsökonomien (IAMO)
The Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Transition Economies (IAMO) analyses economic, social and political processes of change in the agricultural and food sector, and in rural areas. The geographic focus covers the enlarging EU, transition regions of Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe, as well as Central and Eastern Asia. IAMO works to enhance the understanding of institutional, structural and technological changes.
Moreover, IAMO studies the resulting impacts on the agricultural and food sector as well as the living conditions of rural populations. The outcomes of our work are used to derive and analyse strategies and options for enterprises, agricultural markets and politics.
IAMO is an international institute that pursues basic and applied research in the field of agricultural economics. Research activities are grouped to six thematic complexes:
Designing appropriate regulatory frameworks and institutions
Creating resilient agricultural systems
Reduction of and adaptation to environmental risks
Fostering sustainable rural livelihoods in the age of migration
Securing the world’s food supply and competitive supply chains
Diffusion of innovations and knowledge
In addition to internationally oriented research, core tasks of the institute are to train academic scholars from Germany and abroad as well as to support the scientific exchange.
Since its founding in 1994, IAMO has been part of the Leibniz Association, a German community of independent research institutes.
