ABOUT

EU project The Wine Lab - Generating Innovation between Practice and Research creates the foundation for a dialogue among research, business and regional communities, including Universities in Agriculture, Oenology and related fields, and small wineries, mainly those located in disadvantaged areas, to stimulate knowledge flow, share challenges and solutions, and jointly generate and accelerate innovation in the wine sector. The project fosters clustering and networking, provides for learning opportunities, applies action alongside experiential research and learning and capitalises on knowledge towards new methods and approaches in policy planning. This model of intervention can be further mainstreamed to other fields such as food production and agri-tourism.

ACTIVITIES

A comprehensive, integrated study on “Learning landscapes: needs and opportunities in the wine sector” will be undertaken at the project outset, based on desk and field research, laying down the European and national state-of-the-art in the wine sector, analysing related practices from an academia-business cooperation perspective, mapping learning needs and provisions and putting forward recommendations for enhancing university-business cooperation in the wine sector across countries and at EU level. On that basis, learning and training material will be developed and a number of engaging activities will be organised to promote cooperation and innovation in the field.
