The growing requests from operators in the olive sector for the enhancement of the quality of olive oil based on the territory of origin have led to the study of genetic resources and cultivation strategies aimed at increasing the capacity of the olive tree to face the scenarios envisaged by the ongoing climate changes and to reduce the impacts, with a view to enhancing local productions and using the multifunctionality of the crop.
The workshop represents a showcase of some of the approaches used and the most interesting outputs on the international scene.

Target audience

Olive growers, olive oil millers, oil industries, nurseries, control agencies, technicians and operators, researchers in plant genetics, agroecology and oil technology, students and communities interested in the safeguard and exploitation of local resources and the adoption of eco-sustainable cultivation and extraction technologies, community associations.

Please note that this event will be in Italian
