The department carries out basic, applied and business-oriented social science and humanities research in a multidisciplinary setting, embracing economics, law, sociology, political science, development studies and bioethics.

IFRO is Denmark’s only university department specialising in food and natural resource economics.

The target fields are in particular: the natural environment and resources; food production, markets and agricultural policy; global development; food consumption, nutrition and health.

Research at IFRO is divided into four sections covering a wide range of subjects.
However, the researchers at IFRO also carry out cross disciplinary and cross sectional research.
