The Research network on Economic Experiments for the Common Agricultural Policy (REECAP) is an EU-wide network founded in 2017. It aims at bringing together researchers, experts and policy-makers interested in the use of economic experimental approaches to evaluate and improve the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). REECAP’s objective is to contribute to the constant improvement of European agricultural policies, by providing robust results on their net impact, but also by helping to design well-adjusted and effective policy interventions, in the fields, amongst others, of income support, investment policies, risk management and agri-environment including climate change. REECAP can thus help to identify and evaluate policies which are well accepted by farmers, improve the effectiveness of public money spending and yield to more satisfactory outcomes for food consumers and for citizens. REECAP is open to those who wish to promote behavioural analysis and economic experimental designs for the ex-ante and ex-post evaluation of (European) agricultural policies.

After Angers in 2017 and Vienna in 2018, the third meeting will take place at the University of Osnabrück in Germany on September 9th and 10th 2019. It is organised jointly by REECAP, Osnabrück University and the Alexander von Humboldt-Professorship of Environmental Economics at the Institute of Environmental Systems Research with funds from the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation.

The annual meeting’s objective is to strengthen and enlarge the REECAP community and disseminate research and policy advice in the field of agricultural policy. We envisage to attract a diverse audience consisting of researchers, practitioners, policy makers, administrative staff and people lobbying for or intrested in enhancing the performance of agricultural policies. Organisers will welcome contributions from the fields of behavioral and experimental agricultural economics (finished or work-in-progress, not necessarily in the CAP context), which

  • ...apply experimental methods to agricultural or agri-environmental themes: laboratory, field, lab-in-the-field, randomized controlled trials (RCT), and discrete choice experiments (DCE),
  • ...use quasi-experimental techniques to evaluate agricultural or agri-environmental policies, or
  • ...advance or synthesize behavioral economic insights to improve agricultural or agri-environmental policy.

The official call for contributions is available here.
