What is INUO?

The University Institute of Research on Olive and Olive Oils (INUO) is a multidisciplinary research institute at the University of Jaen, Spain. Jaén is known as the World Capital of Olive Oil, thus it plays a pivotal role in the olive oil industry. The INUO is the international reference in the olive sector and is at the forefront of efforts to address the global challenge of transitioning to sustainability through: science of excellence; developing thecnologies to promote sustainable agriculture; fostering research, based on interdisciplinary and collaborative projects, working international partners; providing internationally recognised, high-quality, training. 

The province of Jaen is the world’s largest producer of olive oil. As the global reference in olive grove and olive oil research, INUO has a network of researchers who work, in collaboration with all agents of the olive sector, to generate frontier knowledge to help produce healthy and sustainable crops.



Our focus on multidisciplinary research and our commitment to excellence offer pioneering solutions to the needs of the olive industry; the aim is to modernise the industry, and increase its professionalisation and productivity. We transfer the results of our research to the sector through technology transfer collaborations with olive producing, and related, companies.

As a university Institute we are also committed to knowledge creation and transfer, and to offering the best training in all areas related to olive groves, and olive oil, to young researchers, students and society.


The INUO is a natural evolution of the Centre for Advanced Studies in Olive Grove and Olive Oils created in 2012 by the University of Jaén; the centre achieved the status of a University Research Institute in July 2021 (Andalusian Goverment, BOJA 12 July, 2021). The institute is spread over two locations, the  Las Lagunillas Campus in the City of Jaen, and the GEOLIT Scientific and Technological Park in Mengíbar, Jaen.
