AGROTHESSALY 2023
Interaction

The Exhibition for Agriculture and Livestock, Agrothessaly, is a regional exhibition organization with pan-Hellenic scope, which originates from the strategic cooperation of TIF-HELEXPO and the Municipality of Larissa.

Its aim is to promote the products of Greek and global agro-livestock production, to inform about all developments in new technologies and to create, in the most developed rural area of the country, an important networking point for domestic and international commercial contacts.

At the same time, it hosts interesting informative events on agricultural entrepreneurship, which are organized by primary sector bodies, but also by educational institutions – prominently the University of Thessaly – which attract the interest of professionals in the sector and the general public, both from the local and from the nationwide market.

Agrothessaly is a biannual event that operates in the covered market area of Larissa.

2nd B2B Event on Multifunctional Olive Systems in Lebanon
B2B

Press release

The Mediterranean region leads the world in olive and olive oil production and consumption. However, the increasing demand for olives and olive oil requires the expansion of growing areas and an increase in production. Accordingly, new technologies and innovative production systems are becoming essential.

In order to provide additional support for stakeholders in the olive sector after the first successful B2B event held by the LIVINGAGRO Project consortium in July, the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (MAICH) and the Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute (LARI) are organizing a second B2B event in Lebanon on November 15, 2022.

During this second event, experts from Italy, Greece and Lebanon will present their work on many innovations related to agroforestry in olive growing and olive oil production, sharing their expertise with many stakeholders.

Economic stakeholders, decision makers and research stakeholders involved with the olive and olive oil sector are invited to participate in the event, which will be divided into two parts. The morning session will be dedicated to presenting innovations from several Mediterranean countries, while the afternoon session is reserved for roundtables aiming to deepen the discussions among innovators and stakeholders. Stakeholders will also have the opportunity to meet with each of the innovators in one-to-one meetings to discuss the problems they are facing and their needs for innovations to improve the productivity of their orchards and the quality of their production.

The Cross Border Living Laboratories for Agroforestry (LIVINGAGRO) Project is funded by the European Union through the ENI CBC Med Programme and implemented in Italy, Greece, Lebanon and Jordan. The project aims to support education, research and development, innovation, and technology transfer, including sharing research results, by establishing two Living Labs, one for multifunctional olive systems (Living Lab 1) and the other for grazed woodlands (Living Lab 2). This B2B event is part of Living Lab 1.
