I am in Rome as tomorrow I will be speaking at the National Institute of Agriculture Economics at 2:30 pm during their national conference and seminar. The INEA is a public research organization of the Ministry of Agriculture Policy of the Italian Government. The INEA carries out economic studies, surveys, analysis & forecasts, agro-industrial, forestry and fisheries and is moving into Rural Economic Development and Water Resources. They are interested in the LBTC / LSU mobile classroom and incubator on wheels and its role in rural economic development and business disaster counseling. I will be having lunch prior to the presentation with representatives from the US State Department's Fulbright office and several faculty members from Universita L'Aquila. The mobile classroom has received internationa attention as it is posted on the INEA's web site.
