Conference contents 2018 - Focus on Tradition & Change


We summarized the topic of the conference with the title “New Challenges in Rural Areas – Tradition and Transforming Agriculture”, which we will try to examine by giving an overview of the Hungarian situation, and also that of international scale – staging professional lectures, interactive workshops, and study tours with various topics, organized to agricultural and food industry businesses combining tradition and innovation in the countryside.

The conference focuses on new challenges and trends in agriculture, and how these find their roots in local traditions.  We hope we can offer you insight into the rich rural traditions of the Szigetköz and Western Transdanubian region through visiting self-organising rural communities producing traditional local goods or offering services like eco-tourism or horse riding.

You can compare these with businesses using today’s agricultural and food technology and intelligent systems. We discuss how these influence the work of rural advisors and what kind of solutions can we find together to these challenges.
