Yale University, with the support of the Municipality of Delphi and the Region of Central Greece, organizes the “2nd International Yale Symposium on Olive Oil and Health”, from December 1 to 4, 2019 at the European Cultural Center of Delphi.

It is part of Yale Olive Institute’s ongoing initiative which explores the future of the olive tree and its products and their effects on human and planetary health. Highly acclaimed scientists from all over the world will offer a purely scientific action.

The international organizing committee hopes to “encourage and stimulate discussion and propagate partnerships and collaborations among individuals and entities as part of the effort to establish a Yale Institute that will be devoted to the olive tree and its products.”

The Symposium’s sections will focus on issues such as olive tree and nutrition, olive tree and its derivatives, planetary health. It will also present selected olive oil brands and their promotion practices, as well as the environmentally friendly methods of production.

The aim of the Municipality of Delphi is to develop a specific plan for highlighting the area through its products, and their comparative advantages, utilizing all the tools available.

The Symposium will be in English.
