This conference will discuss how food and agricultural markets can become more stable, and what policies and regulatory frameworks should be implemented to make world food systems more efficient, sustainable and predictable. Gathering presenters from around the world, the conference discussions will help define both EU and international policies to improve food security and ensure that food and agricultural markets function benefiting world consumers and producers.

Co-organised by the European Commission - Joint Research Centre IPTS Seville, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (UCSC), and 7th Framework Programme Project ULYSSES (Understanding and coping with food markets volatility towards more stable world and EU food systems), the conference will showcase ULYSSES main conclusions and results, discuss issues related to the financialisation of agricultural markets: risk management tools and regulation, and discuss policy approaches.

The conference will contribute to frame the debate within recent scientific findings, addressing controversial issues that affect the welfare of consumers, countries’ trust and reliance on markets and national, regional and global initiatives.
