2nd WINETWORK Technical Working Group Meeting
The second meeting of the Technical Working Group representing the Eger wine region in the WINETWORK project was organized in Eger on 28th June 2016.

 

The implementation of WINETWORK project has started in April 2015. As a result of the international cooperation during the past year, a network connecting researchers and practitioners of viticulture and oenology was established. In addition to the efforts to fight against Grapevine Trunk Diseases (GTD) and Flavescence Dorée (FD), the participants aim to establish a professional network to solve future problems of the sector.


The network is based on the cooperation of facilitator agents (FA), technical working groups (TWG) and scientific working groups (SWG). The main task of the technical working groups (TWG) is to provide a macro-vision of the characteristics of the wine regions participating in the project. TWG members are in direct contact with stakeholders of their region. Each TWG includes a so-called facilitator agent (FA), who interconnects science and practice by ensuring the flow of information and knowledge transfer between companies, researchers and other stakeholders of the sector.

The main aim of TWGs if to collect and analyse innovative methods and best practices applied to fight against grapevine trunk diseases and Flavescence Dorée, two threatening diseases, which jeopardize the future wine production in Europe. The cooperating partners share the collected results and select good practices at the European level that can be transferred into regional level.


To carry this out, numerous interviews were prepared with winegrowers of the participating regions in the last few months – in the Eger wine region as well. To discuss the experiences, future tasks and further interviews, a second meeting of the Technical Working Group representing the Eger wine region was organized.


The meeting was held in the Food and Wine Research Centre of the Eszterházy Károly University of Applied Sciences. Ms. Natasa Burghardt, the facilitator agent of Hungary in the project presented the interviewees and the approach applied, then explained the problems identified and the innovative practices collected. The presentation was followed by a roundtable discussion to talk about the presented methods and to select the practices to be investigated during the second series of interviews. As a closure of the meeting the facilitator agent presented the results of the scientific working groups of WINETWORK, then the participants discussed the future tasks of the project.
