This 6th EAAE PhD Workshop is co-organized by AIEAA (Italian Association of Agricultural and Applied Economics) and the Department of Economics of Roma Tre University. It follows the tradition of the previous EAAE PhD Workshops.

The objective of the EAAE PhD Workshop is to give European PhD students the opportunity to present their research in progress in a conference setting and to get feedback from peers and senior economists. Participants will benefit from plenary sessions in which keynote speakers present their most recent contributions and provide guidance on how to successfully carry out research in the agricultural economics domain.

The workshop welcomes submissions by PhD students at any stage of their PhD, as well as students who complete their PhD in 2015. There will be two types of contributions: contributed papers and posters presentation. Proposals are welcome in the areas of agricultural, environmental, food and development economics. Proposals should be submitted in English through the workshop website and in the form of extended abstracts.
