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

  • 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

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


Future research lines and projects in argentina

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.


Future research lines and projects in argentina

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.
