The Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Transition Economies (IAMO) analyses economic, social and political processes of change in the agricultural and food sector, and in rural areas. The geographic focus covers the enlarging EU, transition regions of Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe, as well as Central and Eastern Asia
The Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Transition Economies (IAMO) performs basic and applied research in the agricultural and food sector as well as rural areas of the formerly centrally planned economies of Europe and Asia against the context of international developments. This research approach is unique worldwide. The institute makes a significant contribution to describing and improving the living conditions of the people and the economic development of these regions. Based on research results, the staff develops recommendations for sustainable development in the agricultural and food sector and for promoting rural areas.
IAMO activities, inter alia through teaching and under the umbrella of WissenschaftsCampus Halle – Plant-based Bioeconomy (WCH), are closely linked to the Institute for Agricultural and Food Sciences and the Economic Sciences Department of Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg.
