BESTMAP at the 2021 EU Conference on modelling for policy support
Between 22 and 26 October 2021, BESTMAP will be attending the 2021 EU Conference on modeling for policy support. The European Commission’s Competence Centre on Modelling (CC-MOD) has organised this conference which aims to bring together researchers and policy makers from European and international institutions, Member States, universities, research institutes and consultancies to identify common challenges and solutions when using models to support policy making across all policy domains. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions which it implies, the conference will be fully online and free of charge.
The key objective of this event is to tackle policy challenges, which require political choices and must be transparently informed by evidence. Models are often utilised to assess the environmental, economic, and social consequences of actions. The European Commission develops models throughout the policy cycle and is dedicated to using evidence in a sound and transparent manner within the scope of the Better Regulation policy and the Open Science principles.
BESTMAP will participate with a presentation titled "Agricultural policy behavioural, ecological and socio-economic modelling from case studies to European scale". BESTMAP will be represented by the project coordinator - Prof. Guy Ziv (University of Leeds), along with other partners, amongst whom are Dr Arjan Gosal (University of Leeds), Prof. Anna Cord, Dr Stephanie Roilo (Technical University Dresden), Dr Michael Beckmann, Dr Birgit Mueller (Helmholtz-Zentrum Umweltforschung) & Dr Tomás Václavík, Dr Fanny Langerwisch (Palacky University Olomouc).
