In 2018, the OENOVITI International Network will have its first Symposium outside of Europe. The event will be hosted at the Faculty of Agronomy of the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo in Mendoza, Argentina on 25th April 2018.
Every year, the Network gathers around two main events: The OENOVITI International Symposium and the General Assembly.
The Symposium focuses on a different thematic every year, agreed by the members during the previous General Assembly.
This event is open to all OENOVITI Partners and members of the general public interested in the thematic. It is a chance for speakers to present their research on the theme, and for academics and members of the private sector to come together to discuss related topics and issues.
An official journal is usually published at the Symposium and disseminated among members.
The annual Symposium is usually followed by the OENOVITI Network General Assembly, where the different working groups gather to discuss their activities and the general administration of the network and projects are addressed.
