The SSA is a plattform that encourages communication between Science, Economy, Politics, Education and Extension in the Agri- Food-Chain as well as in rural development. To reach these goals the SSA fosters the dicussion about theoretical and methodological background in the discplines concerning the Agri-Food Chain. The SSA also encourages discussions about applied inter- and transdisciplinary research.

An important step to reach these goals was the foundation of the rural sociology plattform in 2007.
