First LIVINGAGRO B2B Event in Greece – Post-event press release

Inspiring presentations by innovators in the olive and livestock sectors and targeted 1:1 meetings promise knowledge gain and new contacts.

This match-making event brings together innovators with Greek farmers and professionals working in the olive oil, olive, or grazed woodlands sectors who seek help addressing the challenges they face.


Part of the ENI CBC Med EU-funded project called LIVINGAGRO, these free online presentations and meetings will take place in Greek in a dedicated area and will be arranged in advance by means of this website. Greek inventors, scientists, and entrepreneurs will briefly introduce a wide range of innovations.

Topics addressed?

  • Intercropping in Olive Groves
  • Precision Agriculture
  • Machinery
  • Health Benefit Determination
  • Olive Tree and Olive Oil Authentication
  • Preparation for Climate Change
  • Re-using Traditional Practices in Agroforestry

How can we get involved?

Farmers, millers, olive oil producers and bottlers, livestock breeders, distributors, nursery owners, lab technicians, territory managers, agronomists, wholesalers, olive oil company representatives, cooperative members, policy makers, and other interested individuals may register for the free online presentations and discussions with innovators.

While other project partners are working from their bases in Italy, Lebanon, and Jordan, the Greek part of the team is based at the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (MAICh) . For those unable to attend the July meetings, there will be additional presentations in Chania at a later date, most likely in a face-to-face format (conditions and regulations permitting). For more information, please email or call 28210 35030.

This B2B event was made possible by LIVINGAGRO, a project funded by the European Union under the ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme 2014-2020.


“LIVINGAGRO – Cross Border Living Laboratories for Agroforestry” is an EU-funded project that is dedicated to bringing together innovators and stakeholders for mutually beneficial collaborations based on living labs in two areas: multifunctional olive systems and grazed woodlands. These living labs involve closer collaboration between researchers and economic stakeholders, including Greek olive farmers, livestock breeders, and others in the olive, meat, and dairy sectors, than traditional projects.

What are LIVINGAGRO project partners doing?

Rather than simply doing research in isolated labs, scientists are asking farmers, company representatives, policy makers, and other stakeholders for input about the types of problems they need to solve, as well as the most workable solutions.

LIVINGAGRO team members have surveyed numerous stakeholders who work with olive oil and grazed woodlands to determine their needs. Many survey respondents indicated a desire to increase their product’s quality, improve plant health and/or soil fertility, reduce their production costs, increase the quantity produced, and reduce their use of chemical products. Innovations have been identified that can meet those needs as well as others. Later this month, innovators will be presenting potential solutions to challenges to interested members of the public, as well as inviting more comments about stakeholders’ needs.
