The objective of these scholarships is to encourage the transfer of technology and the sharing of information, experience and research among member countries in the fields of olive growing and olive oil technology, and standardisation and research.
The maximum duration of the PhD is four (4) years.
The subject of the doctoral thesis must be related to the objectives of the International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives 2015 that the IOC is charged with administering (https://www.internationaloliveoil.org/about-ioc/mission-basic-text/).
