Logo Europe

Viticulture is one of the largest agri-food export sectors in the European Union. Given the economic and cultural importance of wine in Europe, supporting the sector in a transition to new practices is essential to ensuring its viability in the coming decades. The development of disease-resistant grapevine varieties and consumer perception lie at the heart of the Horizon Europe “GrapeBreed4IPM” project*. Coordinated by INRAE, this four-year project brings together 19 partners and two affiliated partners from seven countries to develop decision-making tools for grapevine professionals that will help them sustainably manage their vineyards in adherence with European standards.
