Public-sector services and consultancy

The Department of Food and Resource Economics (IFRO) conducts research-based consultancy for the public sector concerning economic issues with regard to food, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, nature and the environment.

The main users of those services include the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark and other ministries and institutions. The consultancy reports are used for the ministries' preparations for international negotiations and the preparing and evaluating of law propositions, action plans, etc.

The written outputs of the different consultancy assignments are published in the series IFRO Udredning (IFRO Commissioned Work). Usually, they are written in Danish.

Public-sector services co-ordinator concerning the food area is associate professor Jesper Sølver Schou,
and concerning the environment area the work is coordinated by
professor Jette Bredahl Jacobsen.
