The Institute of Regional and Agricultural Economics was founded by the integration of three previously independent departments: Agribusiness and Management, International Economic Relations and Regional Sciences and Statistics.
Our main resources are our experiences, diversity and team spirit. Relying on these, we serve the development and formulation of sustainable and viable rural and urban areas based on our research and education activities.
Among these, we have a special focus on:
theoretical and practical issues of territorial processes and inequalities,
current environmental sustainability issues,
economic systems for sustainable food supply,
analysis of the major world economic systems, with particular attention to international economic relations.
Our mission is to contribute to the training of professionals who know the global social and economic processes and challenges and who are able to react on these on an effective and local way.
