|Abstract: ||The agri-food sector is characterized by very heterogeneous agreements and formal and
informal contracts aimed to create stable relationships among firms.
In this scenario, the actors are linked by common interest in creating and distributing added value. In the network, the risk and the responsibilities are shared by the participants and the transaction costs are reduced by the presence of dynamic flows of information and knowledge.
Consequently, the creation and development of agri-food networks is a main objective of
regional administration in their Rural Development Plans.
The article item is the presentation and the discussion of the methodology used for the
evaluation of Integrated Measures Project (Progetti Integrati di Filiera, PIF) presented by firm networks and agri-food chains in Veneto.
The result are demonstrated extremely interesting about the understanding of PIF. Moreover, the comparative study serve to understand the result in terms of competitive advantage and income for the farmers.|
