Non-EAAE courses

 

‘Can EU CAP it?’: the easiest way to get answers to all questions on the reformed Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)

Last November the Groupe de Bruges officially launched a unique e-learning platform, www.caneucapit.eu, where all European citizens can engage in learning and discussing the oldest European policy: the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The platform consists of five parts: CAP Game, CAP Basic videos, CAP Pro course, CAP Events & CAP Forums.

20th Anniversary Groupe de Bruges
The Groupe de Bruges was founded on February 5 1995 in Bruges, Belgium. To celebrate this milestone we are offering the CAP Pro course at the price it would have cost in 1995.
So, instead of € 99,95, we can offer CAP Pro for € 59,70 for those that register for the course until February 5.

More information is available through the website or you can contact Mr Bart Soldaat, soldaat.bart@gmail.com at +316 2129 2979.

 

We are pleased to announce a three-day hands-on modelling course on the economics of bioenergy policies that will take place in Ravello (Amalfi Coast, Italy) on June 20-22, 2015.

 

The course is partially based on the new soon-to-be released text, The Economics of Biofuel Policies: Impacts on Price Volatility in Grain and Oilseed Markets, by Harry de Gorter, Dusan Drabik and David R. Just. This workshop will offer a mix of classroom lectures and computer lab exercises (please bring your laptops). In this way, the participants in the workshop will have full knowledge of the underlying theory; be able to forecast feedstock prices under alternative expectations of energy prices and mandate premiums; calibrate a basic model (with multiple policies in the baseline) for corn-ethanol in the United States versus sugarcane ethanol in Brazil, and canola-oil biodiesel in Europe. The participants will also be able to simulate the welfare effects of various policy (and market) scenarios on food commodity prices, the environment and energy markets, and  assess how well the various energy security, environmental and farm policy goals are being achieved. Emphasis will be given on the efficacy of biofuel policies in small developing countries.
