On November 14th 2017, OLEUM was presented at the 31st EFFOST International Conference in Sitges, Spain.
OLEUM was presented at the European Researchers' Night 2017 in an interactive laboratory focusing on how to recognise good quality olive oils.
OLEUM researchers Jean-François Morin and Alain Maquet summarise their work so far in an interview about the OLEUM Databank, an online integrated quality assurance database of olive oil analytical methods and data related to chemical and organoleptic characteristics.
On 4 - 6 October 2017, OLEUM partners met in Greece for a project meeting to mark the end of the first year of the project and discuss progress and future plans. The meeting was hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
The OLEUM project has developed a questionnaire with the aim of identifying information about current weaknesses in the olive oil regulations and analytical methods and to gather information about emerging frauds.
