Project: Institutional economics in the agrifood business: How can structural policy help to integrate EU.

project duration
25-AUG-99 – 30-APR-01
It is clear that in order to reverse the hold-up problems in agrifood business and to create sustainable solutions more attention must be given to links and relationships within the agri-food chains. Hereby, the key problem is related to the absence of adequate institutions able to counteract the hold-up problems. The objectives of the research are threefold: - Identification of the principles to two sub-sectors of the agro-food business in Poland, Czech Republic and Hongary, resulting in an institutional strategy per sector. - Implementation of the developed strategy at sectoral level.
