New Ruralities – Bertebos Conference

Konferens

New Ruralities – changing agendas for research and practice

The 2014 Bertebos Conference is dedicated to Professor Philip Lowe who received the Bertebos prize in 2013. He holds the Duke of Northumberland Chair of Rural Economy and is the founding Director of the Centre for Rural Economy at Newcastle University, UK.
This year’s topic is in line with his reflexive and interdisciplinary approach to rural studies. We will bring together distinguished Swedish and UK researchers from many disciplines as well as prominent stakeholders to discuss the social, economic, environmental and technological challenges faced by rural areas with a special focus on Sweden and the UK.
The theme New Ruralities will guide all parallel sessions and the two Key Notes, asking what changes in practice are taking place in rural areas and what implications those have for research. We have an exciting and topical range of parallel sessions to choose from, and will ask all participants to contribute to making this Conference an active forum for discussing New Ruralities.

A background to the Bertebos prize conference

The Bertebos Prize was instituted in 1996 by Brita and Olof Stenström as a means of promoting education and research in the food chain. The prize consists of two parts, a diploma and 300,000 Swedish kronor, which are awarded in January every second year, followed by a two-day conference in Falkenberg in the following year. The award-winner plans the conference in collaboration with the Academy and opens the conference with a plenary lecture.
The 2013 Bertebos Prize was awarded to Professor Philip Lowe for his rural studies with significant contributions in sustainable rural development and land use management.
