The CIHEAM Institute of Chania continuing its long tradition, since 2001 in the organisation of the EAAE seminars, has undertaken the responsibility for the 164th EAAE Seminar.
Unambiguously, preserving the ecosystem and securing sustainability is a very complex topic with several interlinked dimensions. The main objective of this seminar is to bring together researchers and policymakers, to establish the relation between agro-food chains and the preservation and provision of ecosystem services. In addition, environmental, methodological and societal issues will be tackled from a transaction perspective. The results of the seminar will make further contributions to the topic for future applications and research.
