Olive Bioactives: applications and prospects

Deadline for registration: 30/06/2016

The olive tree, closely connected to the Mediterranean region, has provided a variety of goods. Research on the olive has started early but was proven inexhaustible revealing a vast array of nutritional, health and cosmetic properties. The aim of this workshop is to present a holistic research strategy towards the multifaceted exploitation of the olive tree, including activities such as extraction, fractionation, isolation, analysis of olive tree products as well as investigation of processes related to olive industry and valorization of by-products. Moreover the biological profile and the therapeutic potential of olive extracts and compounds will be presented as well as their possible applications as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, dietary supplements and cosmetics agents.
