Dear members,

A few weeks ago we met with our Japanese partners, University of Yamanashi, Kyoto University and Niigata University, to discuss the organization of the upcoming OENOVITI International Symposium and General Assembly, scheduled to take place in Japan in May 2022.

After analyzing the sanitary situation in Japan, the current regulations in place and current context, and in agreement with the Executive Committee of the Network, we have decided to postpone the face-to-face events in Japan to May 2023. We are very sad not to meet face-to-face again soon, but we are working on a new programme for 2023 and hope to see many of you then.

However, we are happy to announce that the Symposium "Resilience in the grape and wine industry" will still be maintained online on Monday 30th May and Tuesday 31st May. The General Assembly and Work Group Meetings will also be organized online on Wednesday 1st of June.

You will find here below a draft programme of the events. We will soon send you the final programme with the registration links for each session. Thank you to our speakers for their flexibility and participation.


We hope we can meet again soon, and send you our best wishes.

Kind regards,
