CIHEAM-IAMM is the Montpellier–based institute of the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), founded in 1962 as an intergovernmental cooperation organization under the auspices of the OECD and the Council of Europe. CIHEAM’s main objectives are post-graduate education and promotion of research and development in the fields of agriculture and natural resources. The CIHEAM-IAMM is made up of a single research laboratory called LAMES: “Laboratoire d’accueil Méditerranéen en Economie et Sciences sociales”.
Providing sustainable and nutritious food requires a reconfiguration of food systems. Research and innovation to foster new products and processes, with sustainable business approaches responding to markets are needed to meet consumers demand and gain consumers acceptance and awareness.
The internship will be supervised by Paolo Prosperi, lecturer and researcher at CIHEAM-IAMM in agricultural and food economics (UMR MoISA – Montpellier Interdisciplinary center on Sustainable Agri-food systems).
