General - Introduction

The Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development is the only Greek University Department with the objective of training agro-economists able to meet the demands of this new, promising but also challenging, period in Greek agriculture which was inaugurated with the entry of Greece into the European Union.

The primary aim of the Department is to promote knowledge and to educate scientists specialized in research and in tackling problems connected with the economic, social, political and environmental dimension of a viable rural development within the framework of European integration.

The special characteristic of the Department is that it combines areas of expertise derived from both the sciences and the humanities. The agro-technical knowledge is essential for the evaluation of management intervention at the level of agricultural enterprises and the economic value of general measures of agricultural policy. On the other hand, decision-making and the formation of policy of an agro-technical nature are not possible without the knowledge of the principles and mechanisms of economics.
