UP FM has received notification of the selection of applications for co-financing the Slovenian part of the Hungarian-Slovenian project, where the National Research, Development, and Innovation Office (NKFIH) acts as the lead agency.
The University of Primorska, Faculty of Management's application for co-financing the research project, number N5-0312, entitled »Greening and Sustainability of the Common Agricultural Policy: A Hungarian-Slovenian Comparison«, project leader UP FM Prof. Štefan Bojnec, has been accepted for co-financing. The participating organisation on the Hungarian side is the Institute of Economics, Centre for Economic and Regional Studies, Eötvös Loránd Research Network, Budapest where the project leader is Prof. DDr. Imre Fertő. The project will run from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2025.
The study aims to fill the gap in assessing the green transition policy and trade-offs in the sustainability impacts of the Common Agricultural Policy by making a Hungarian-Slovenian comparison of agriculture, farms, and rural areas. The aim is to contribute to policy evaluation using advanced econometric methods to understand better the resilience and sustainability of the agri-environmental climate scheme (AECS) mechanism, the green transition, and trade-offs on sustainability impacts - economic, social, and environmental - from a comparative perspective. The focus is on socio-demographic, economic, and ecological factors. Participation in CCAs is explored in terms of gender and sustainability through the adoption of conservation practices, the impact of CCAs on the resilience and sustainability of farms linked to farmers' age, and green transition and trade-offs in impacts on farm sustainability, especially on environmental impacts. The study focuses on the differences and similarities between the two countries regarding the resilience and sustainability impacts of CCAs on farms, agriculture, and rural areas.
