This two-day 'Science to Practice' event (7-9 October) is organised in four modular sessions and aims to develop regional skills for cork quality assessment in the Mediterranean region. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event will take place online.
Addressed mainly to Tunisian and Spanish cork producers and managers, technicians and landowners’ associations, participants will become familiar with cork sampling field protocols used in Portugal and Spain; cork quality commercial classification protocols, and cork defects, pests and diseases with impact in the market value, among other issues.
The Cork iNet questions directly targeted through this 'Science to Practice' event will be the profitability of cork production, and the opportunity to attempt the adoption common standard for assessing cork quality across the Mediterranean.
