Annual Conference

SGA Annual Conference

Every year the SGA holds a scientific symposium on a topical issue in the agriculture and food system from the perspective of agricultural economics and rural sociology.

The symposium serves as a forum for the presentation and discussion of new research projects from Switzerland and abroad, and offers participants a chance to exchange information and views on topical issues.

The focus of the intended discourse is the applicability and further development of the findings gained from science, and their implications for the scientific, economic, administrative, policy, education and extension sectors.

Submitted contributions undergo a one-stage review process. This scientific review is conducted by two anonymous reviewers.  The SGA awards a prize for the best poster and best presentation at its annual conference. 

The languages of the conference are German, French and English. No translation or interpreting takes place.
