Missions

The OENOVITI International network is based on:

  • the mobility of its staff and students,
  • the exchange of experience and good practices between the relevant subjects,
  • the building of a common core curriculum in education and training

The network functions as a sustainable multi-site training network to enhance European education in grape growing and wine making, building on technologies and expertise across excellent oenology institutions as a primary scaffold for early training. The programs involve many partners from industry and the socioeconomic world. Beyond their financial support, they provide their expertise to pursue top-quality R&D and to offer employment opportunities to young graduates.

We have established collaborative research centers with the private sector (with wine business multinationals). We have also set up many national and international research platforms to organize our various activities, including vine and grape bank sampling, yeast and bacteria bank sampling, wine bank sampling, DNA and RNA sampling, proteomics, sensory panels list, oeno-informatics and genetic research activities.

The network is organized around its members gathered during General Assemblies, 7 work groups (transverse and thematic):

  • Extended Oenology
  • Extended Viticulture
  • Climate Change
  • Industrial Transfer
  • Wine Management and Tourism
  • Wine and Health
  • Development, Strategic Funding, International Relations

By planning events such as General Assemblies, Symposiums, and get-togethers, we actively nurture young scientists in the international oenology community.
