VIII International Agriculture Symposium "AGROSYM 2017"
AGROSYM is, since eight years, an annual platform for international scientific discussion on agriculture, food, rural development, environment and forestry. AGROSYM represents a good opportunity to exchange ideas, to strengthen existing and to create new academic networks, and to foster dialogue between the academia, public institutions, the private sector and civil society organizations on the recent global and regional trends in the agro-food sector.

During the four-day Symposium (6-9 October, 2016), over 1100 contributions were presented to more than 1000 participants representing 78 world countries:
