Symposium Innovine

Innovine project comes to an end. To close the project, partners organized a final symposium. Several presentations related to project results and outcomes were given. More than 250 people were present to attend presentation on adaptation to climate change and diseases' impact, concrete experiences on resistant varieties, sensors and decision support systems.

A review on the Decision Support Systems (DSSs) and models available in viticulture. New models and adaptation of existing models carried out in the frame of Innovine


The congress ENOFORUM, held in Vicenza (Italy) on May 2015, offered the opportunity to present some of the first results obtained within the project.

Main objectives and structure of the project

The dedicated session started with a presentation of the project objectives and structure, offered by Olivier Geffroy from the center IFV V'Innopole at Lisle sur Tarn (France).The overall plan of activities and the network of project partners were described.

Can tradition and innovation coexist ?

The first technical presentation was then given by Stefano Poni, Director of the Department of Sustainable Crop Production, Catholic University of Piacenza and leader in the project of workpackage 2 "Design of optimized vineyard practices to reduce pesticides". Prof. Poni offered the congress audience a seminar on the difficult coexistence between tradition and innovation, showing some data issued from INNOVINE inserted in the context of his pluridecennial experience in canopy management and vine physiology., a DSS for sustainable Vineyard Management

Prof. Vittorio Rossi, scientist pathologist owing to the same department of the Catholic University of Piacenza, developed the topic of DSS (Decision Support Systems) as important tool allowing to optimize the strategy of defense of the vineyard against pathogens, with reduction of chemical use, increase of efficiency of the treatment, and positive environmental and economic effects. The system, developed within a previous project, is further improved in INNOVINE by applying it in a variety of climatic and social conditions.
