Armenian National Agrarian University
Still as a university student, Vardan Urutyan had a special interest in agribusiness economics, and this interest largely determined his further research career. In his nearly 40 research papers and studies published in Armenia and abroad, of which 23 were presented at international conferences in different countries, Dr. Urutyan has revealed urgent issues of the Armenian agriculture and agribusiness and suggested hands-on solutions based on the latest international practices and approaches. Dr. Urutyan has implemented numerous research projects and sector specific studies that suggested long-term sustainable results eventually leading to investments, successfully accomplished projects, and changes in the country's legislation. His studies cover a wide range of diverse topics, from reforms in agricultural education to creation of cooperative legislation in the country, from a baseline assessment of the wine industry to value chain analysis for particular agricultural products, from financial literacy for different stakeholders of agricultural production to capacity building for the organic sector, from production and management of greenhouse crops to creation of universal models for sustainability evaluation of farms. Dr. Urutyan's partnership ties with a number of leading universities in Europe, the United States and many other regions have basically secured the place of the ANAU Agribusiness Department (the Agribusiness Teaching Center) in the international educational and research space.
