2nd OLEUM Workshop - Hands on New Analytical Methods for Quality & Authenticity of Olive oil
As key part of the OLEUM project new methods for measuring quality and authenticity of olive oil are being developed. These are needed to improve the efficiency of existing analytical methods and procedures, but also to prevent and detect more sophisticated frauds that could take place today.
Following on the 1st OLEUM workshop in Seville (Spain), OLEUM now organises the second workshop aiming to bring even more experts in the field to discuss the newly developed analytical methods:
The two new method are :
Determination of free and esterified sterols in olive oils;
Determination of volatiles compounds (targeted and untargeted approach) and use of sensory reference materials;
If you are working in the area of olive oil analysis in a private or public laboratory, now the OLEUM Project offers the opportunity to attend this FREE workshop to:
explain and discuss these two methods in detail with the intended users, i.e. the analytical laboratories analysing routinely olive oil (led by the principal investigators);
contribute to the finalization of the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) prior on commencing the full validation (analysing advantages and eventual drawbacks);
discuss the results of the pre-validation trial.
publicly disseminate the methods;
highlight other related analytical needs/opportunities.
We warmly invite you to attend this FREE one day workshop, which is conveniently organised on the 11th of December 2019, just after the Italian Society for Fats and Oils Researches (Società Italiana per lo Studio delle Sostanze Grasse) conference in Bologna, Italy. The workshop brings together experts and analytical laboratories in the field of olive oil analysis. This special mix of scientific and practical input to the workshop will be a valuable opportunity to receive training on the analytical methods, learn from practical experiences, and exchange ideas with peers and help shape of the future of olive oil analysis.
Register now to secure your place. We hope to welcome you in Bologna, on the 11th of December 2019! Please check again for the exact venue location.
