Igls Forum
International European Conference Series on

System Dynamics and Innovation
in Food Networks


The Forum is organized as an annual event every February in Igls, a mountainous suburb of Innsbruck/Austria. It is a joint initiative by agri-food groups of leading European and international universities and business schools providing a discussion platform for the European and international scientific community.

It is endorsed by international scientific associations in agricultural economics, agribusiness, engineering, and information research including

            EAAE (European Association of Agricultural Economists)
            IFAMA (International Food and Agribusiness Management Assoc.)
            AIEA2 (Assoc. Intern. di Economia Alimentare e Agro-Industriale)
            CIGR (Intern. Commission of Agric. and Biosystems Engineering)
            INFITA (Intern. Network for IT in Agric., Food and the Environment)

It is the objective of this Forum to provide an interdisciplinary and creative discussion environment for primarily senior scientists that generates new ideas for innovative and multidisciplinary research. Its focus is on the analysis of the food system dynamics and interdependencies; the identification of  drivers for sustainable system dynamics in the decision sphere of the system actors (e.g. chain management, consumers, agencies, policy, etc.); and on the identification and promotion of potential system innovations.
