Presentation Transcript

What is being doing now (already shown in previous presentations) and,

  • What will be done in the near future



Comparison between Australia and Argentina

  • Grape-wine chain businesses comparable
  • R+D investment not comparable
  • Sustainability of the chain comparable?

Cause/effect relationship??


SecytPreliminary Proposal (competitive grant) – Program for Strategic Areas (PAE)

In clusters for production of goods and services:

  • To develop knowledge in issues of main concern,
  • To unravel priority problems,
  • To take advantage of emerging opportunities

Duration of Projects: 4 years

Maximum available per project: U$D 3 millions


Construction of the Preliminary Proposalby confronting (inter-disciplinary):

Necessities in Research and Development outlined in the PEVI 2020 (Strategic Plan for Viti-viniculture in Argentina) performed by COVIAR (Argentinean Viti-viniculture Corporation)

Lines of research the cluster of scientists that work in the region may attend regarding:

  • Primary production
  • Industry
  • Health, energy and environment
  • Socio-economy

Institutions (inter-institutional)

  • Centro Regional de Investigaciones Científicas y Tecnológicas (CRICyT-CONICET)
  • Corporación Vitivinícola Argentina
  • Instituto Nacional del Agua
  • Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria
  • Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Industrial
  • Instituto Nacional de Vitivinicultura
  • Universidad Nacional de Cuyo
  • Universidad Juan Agustín Maza
  • Universidad Nacional de San Juan
program for argentine viti viniculture
Program for Argentine viti-viniculture

Production and transmission of scientific knowledge in order to strength innovation, sustainability and competitiveness of the Argentine viti-viniculture


Objective 1- R & D

To strength the inter-institutional net of research and development that potencies the innovative and transference processes and promotes strategic alliances with other national and international research centers.


Objective 2- R & D

To produce, to validate and to transmit scientific and technical knowledge for innovating the grape (wine, must –grape juice-, table grape and dry grape) cluster in order to potency quality, yield and diversity, in a frame of sustainable production, allowing to reach the levels of competitiveness outlined in the PEVI.


Objective 3 - Human an material resources

  • To consolidate a “critical mass” of scientists in the area,
  • To incorporate equipment to be shared among scientists,
  • To build-up an innovative center for grape and wine in Argentina.

Research lines in primary production

  • Sustainable management of soil and water in viticulture.
  • Eco-physiological, genetic, biochemical and molecular studies of grape responses to abiotic (water stress, salinity, radiation -mainly UV/B-) and biotic (bacteria –PGPB- and fungi) factors.
  • Research and development of technologies for canopy management and crop mechanization.
  • Studies on the main plagues of grape and design of integrated control.
  • Development of standard parameters for grape quality and the optimal time for harvest.
  • Obtaining, characterization and evaluation of rootstocks and varieties of grapes for wine, table grape, dry grape and must.

Research lines in agro-industry

  • Development of enological practices for differentiated and high quality wine.
  • Post-harvest technology for table grape.

Research lines in health, energy and environment

  • Health security in the wine chain, contaminants; wine and health.
  • Improvement of the energetic and environmental efficiency in wine industry; the potential use of wine industry residues as active principles, biomass and fertilizers.

Research lines in Socio-economy

  • Studies of preferences of wine consumers and adaptation of the Argentine wine style to the international market.
  • Strategic prospective of the Argentinean and world viticulture.
