New project - H2020 TRACEWINDU
Our new H2020 project called TRACEWINDU has just started. On June 9 and June 11, we took part in the project Kick-off Meeting. This project is one of the main outputs of the partnership development efforts of our researchers. The project is coordinated by the University of Barcelona and there are partners from Spain, Italy, France, Montenegro, Serbia and Argentina involved. This project is funded under Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange funding schema.
DESCRIPTION of the TRACEWINDU project (from CORDIS) – Each year the wine industry loses billions of euro from counterfeit wine and illicit trades. The EU-funded TRACEWINDU project aims to ensure and improve the traceability of wine along the entire value chain, with intelligent labelling and data recording through blockchain technology. This will allow consumers to make purchases based on complete and reliable information about the production process. In addition to this, the project will work towards improving vineyard productivity by using plant protection products as well as geographic origin analysis as part of a multi-approach strategy to ensure wine traceability/authentication.
