The specific objectives are:

  1. to assess the benefits of using two produced nutrients-enriched chars in the improvement of olive trees and other high-economical-added-value crops productivity,
  2. to determine the ability of these chars in removing organic molecules that could be contained in the irrigation water (pesticides),
  3. to permit the exchange and mobility of researchers and students from South to North and
