OLEA Initiative

The University of Jaén is located in the province of Jaén (Spain), which is the main producer of olive oil in the world.

In order to foster the joint participation of researchers, SMEs, public administrations, universities and research institutes in R&I project proposals on the olive sector, the UJA International Projects Office (OFIPI) has created the so-called OLEA Initiative, which started in Brussels on 29th June 2017 (OLEA R&I Project Info & Networking Event) and is implemented with the collaboration with the UJA Advanced Research Center in Olive Grove and Olive Oils. Following the success of this first meeting, the UJA hosted a second meeting on 25th January 2018 (OLEA R&I Project Development day) with over 100 participants.

We are glad to announce that a III OLEA INTERNATIONAL PROJECT NETWORKING EVENT will take place at the University of Jaén (Spain) in May 2020 (26th – 28th) and we would be glad to welcome you!
