Smart Specialisation and the Agri-food System. A European Perspective

News article |

The book discusses recent innovation and diversification paths in agri-food, specifically the linkages among food research and innovation, production, consumption, gastronomy, and place branding as well as technology. It also focuses on EU policies and instruments in support of R&I activities in agri-food, and explores agri-food domains within the context of smart specialisation.

The book by Katerina Ciampi Stancova and Alessio Cavicchi addresses the newly emerging interest in the agri-food system and its effect on the European countryside and regional development patterns, combines insights from EU policies (agriculture, food, cohesion), research (agri-food, management, business, regional development), and practice (local/regional development patterns, promotion of high-quality agri-food products, sustainable development) and attracts scholars and bridges research from different disciplines to a truly interdisciplinary topic.

The book shall be published at the beginning of September 2018.
