Multi-functional olive systems in the Mediterranean Basin include agroforestry systems that strongly contribute to supporting local economies, providing both plant and animal products.
Today, there is a strong demand from farmers for an integrated system of good practices that guarantee the sustainability of production, the transfer of innovation and the increase in profitability for the territories/actors involved.
The Livingagro project addresses these issues using an Open Innovation approach, based on the establishment of a Living Laboratory on multi-functional olive systems that will allow to co-create economic and social values and the interactions between supply and demand, eliminating geographical and cultural barriers.
This webinar will offer the opportunity for capitalizing the main innovations that have arisen from research and technological development projects conducted in recent years or still active in Mediterranean countries.
