Ruralis - Institute for Rural and Regional Research
Ruralis is a privately owned foundation and one of the leading academic communities in Europe in interdisciplinary rural studies. Ruralis has a staff including over 30 researchers at its headquarter in Trondheim and its local office in Oslo with backgrounds in sociology, geography, history, economics, social anthropology, political science, agronomy and fisheries. Ruralis contributes to WP 4 and WP 5 by improving the modelling of structural change and farm exit decision using the Agrispace model. The model consistently aligns the decisions of individual decision makers (i.e., farmers) at farm level with a partial equilibrium model at the sectoral level.
