This project coordinated by the University of Bordeaux (ISVV) with Hochschule Geisenheim University, University of Agronomic Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Bucharest, Rovira i Virgili University, University of Torino, Syndicat des Vignerons Bios d'Aquitaine and Ecovin will have the following main goals:
1) Developing an Intensive Study Programme (ISP) dealing with Organic viticulture and wine fields
2) Creating a Learning Management System (LMS) for ISP Master students
3) Building a mutualized Master pathway programme between the OENOBIO consortium partners by using the LMS
4) Progressively opening the ISP and LMS to the socio-professional sector to support Life Long Learning
In the recent past, there has been an increasing demand for organic and inherently ‘green’ wine products.
Also, over the past few years, the EU has been developing codes of good practices for organic viticulture and wine-making, focusing on the development of environment and consumer friendly technologies for organic wine quality improvement and scientifically based legislative frameworks. The demand of knowledge in Europe regarding organic vine and wine production is now also originating from the industry and the needs of specialization of oenologists' students in this field has therefore become a necessity. To respond to this demand, the five partner universities have decided to adapt to this context by sharing their experiences and teaching contents focusing on organic vine and wine production.
