Bioresources for Olive culture
// BeFOre_RISE //

Project Summary

The project aims at establishing a multi-lateral network of research and innovation staff active in OLIVE germplasm  access, conservation, evaluation and exploitation, strengthening research capacities through the exchange of knowledge and expertise on a shared research programme focused on establishing integrated common protocols to phenotype and characterize plants at molecular, morphological and physiological level, and evaluating the olive oil quality related to varieties.

Particular attention will be paid at studying the in the international regulation on intellectual property rights for conserving and exchanging the olive genetic resources. The involvement of some Non Academic Organizations will allow the sharing of knowledge and ideas from research to all levels of the olive production chain, from plant propagation to fruit production and oil extraction (and vice-versa).
