European Commission - Joint Reserach Centre (JRC)


Summer 2013 - Spring 2014


Consortium ENgAGE (Expert Network for Agro-Economic modelling) represented by LEI, institute within the legal entity Stichting Dienst Landbouwkundig Onderzoek, Wageningen. Active members of the team were:

  • EuroCARE GmbH

  • Johann Heinrich von Thünen-Institut

The project aims to calibrate the CAPRI model to the latest DG Agri baseline which includes Croatia as part of the EU-28 to facilitate calibration work and trade-related policy impact assessments with the CAPRi model.

More concrete objectives are the following:

  • to be able to adequately simulate market and political effects after the EU enlargement in 2013 with the accession of Croatia

    • aggregation of the new common market and trade bloc of the EU-28

    • extending EU Common Agricultural Policy towards Croatia

    • extending EU biofuels policy towards Croatia

  • update assumptions for EU baseline sugar policy in relation to the abandonment of sugar quotas before 2020
