New TSEG: The Agro-Food Chain

Five case studies in the latest issue of TSEG (vol 13, 2016, no 4) unravel and analyse the connections and interdependencies between economic actors, knowledge institutions and the State in the agro-food chain.
For instance, Marijn Molena examines the early years of the Friesian Dairy School and offers a case study of how knowledge institutions were integrated into a regional economic cluster.
