For the first time in Greece, on November 29 – 30, 2014, at the Thessaloniki NOESIS Science and Technology Center, an International Conference will be organized on the importance of the Olive Tree beyond its nutritional value. The conference will cover all the sectors that the olive tree and its products may contribute to society.
Prominent scientists from around the world will address topics such as olive products and economy, olive oil-health and beauty, olive oil and medical research, olive oil and new jobs, olive oil and education etc.
At the same time various related events will take place, such as, olive oil tasting instruction to high-school students and festivities for the acquaintance with the olive tree by elementary school pupils.
In addition, there will be an exhibition with the internationally awarded Greek olive oils and informative updates on the cultivation of the olive tree by producers.
The recently released documentary “Olive Tree: The Gift of the Goddess” by Exoptron Ltd will be presented for the first time. The first three episodes, 30 min each, will be shown in between the speaker sessions. More information on the documentary series may be found at the website: exoptron.com.

We expect all of you to attend the conference, a non-profit educational initiative, in order to be informed of the new prospects that the olive tree may open to everyone.
