Special collection: "SIDEA 2017"

DuringNew Content Item (1) 13 through 16 September of 2017, SIDEA's annual conference was held jointly with the Italian Society of Agribusiness (SIEA) in the southern Italian city of Bisceglie, on the Adriatric Sea, and in Trani, the neighboring town to the north. 

The theme was Strategie cooperative e creazione del valore in una filiera alimentare sostenibile, translated to "Cooperative strategies and value creation in a sustainable food supply chain." 

 Among the numerous research works in progress presented during the conference, several received the distinction of being among the "best" papers. Their authors were invited to submit to Agricultural and Food Economics. After multiple rounds of blinded peer review, the papers in this special collection were ultimately accepted for publication in the journal. Together, they comprise the SIDEA 2017 special collection.
