    ‘Socio-economic impact of agricultural science: the European story’ – seminar held on 28th October 2015 at Cambridge University

    Peter Midmore, IMPRESA coordinator, is presenting a seminar on 28th October at Cambridge University’s Department of Land Economy entitled ‘Socio-economic impact of agricultural science: the European story’. Public support of agricultural science depends on free-rider and market failure arguments, and also the existence of the substantial returns on investment that can be generated. However, in the European context there are barriers to understanding of both the nature and the extent of the socioeconomic and environmental benefits that arise from government-funded agricultural research. Data gaps are an immediate problem, but the issues of organisational change in science and the increasing influence of the corporate sector in determining research agendas also merit investigation. This seminar will provide a perspective of work-in-progress in the IMPRESA project, with discussion of measurement, analysis and interpretation of the public and private good aspects of science-based innovations, and identify specific controversies that remain unsettled. >>
