CREA-VE Centre for Viticulture and Enology Research - Conegliano TV
This Centre deals with viticulture and enology, with reference to wine grapes, table grapes and rootstocks. It carries out activities aimed at preserving and promoting wine germoplasm through the studies of physiology, and genetic, genomic and metabolomic progress. It also promotes defensive techniques and innovative winegrowing techniques in relation to the fertility of the soils and their interaction with the grapevines, for environmental sustainability and for food safety. This Centre is involved in chemical, biological and sensorial studies that concern the transformation of the grapes by fostering the biodiversity of the fermenting micro-organisms. The Centre certifies planting materials and manages the National Registry of the Varieties of Grapevines and the relative catalogue.
AGENCY OF THE VENETO REGION FOR INNOVATION IN THE PRIMARY FIELD
The Agency for the innovation in the primary field is an instrumental body of the Veneto Region; through its activities, it supports the Regional Council in its politics of agriculture, agri-food, forestry and fishing. Furthermore, it deals with applied research and experimentation directed towards testing and promoting productive and organizational innovations that will improve competitiveness and production, environmental sustainability, in the compartments of agriculture, agri-food, forestry and fishing. The Agency works on transferring the innovations (technological, organizational, process and product) to the production system, including promoting and certifying quality; safeguarding and protecting vegetal biodiversity
and autochthonous animals that may be interesting from an agricultural, naturalistic and fishing point of view as well as managing the regional forest domain.
THE PUBLIC UPPER-SECONDARY SCHOOL – “G.B. CERLETTI”
The public upper-secondary school “G.B. Cerletti” of Conegliano, with a specialization in viticulture and enology, has origins that date back to 1876 when, the King of Italy Vittorio Emanuele II declared its establishment. The school, historically known as School of Enology, has its roots in the successful and productive cooperation between school and territory and offers formative courses that include both Technical Studies (Agricultural Institute “Cerletti”) and Professional Studies (Vocational School for Agriculture and Environment “Corazzin”). These studies are completed with courses in Technical Higher Education (ITS) made available to highschool graduates. ITS welcomes students from all over Italy and overseas.
THE INTERDEPARTMENTAL CENTRE FOR VITICULTURE AND ENOLOGY RESEARCH (CIRVE) OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PADUA
This Centre is a leader in Italy in the field of research and education in viticulture and enology thanks to a team of qualified researchers, to innovative experimental projects, to study programmes like Masters, Summer School, Erasmus and international Workshops. One of the missions of this Centre is to promote and value the System of Internationalization between students, professors and the research group in order to make available the necessary know-how to become more competitive on the global market. Thanks to their systematic relations with other territorial bodies, the Centre holds a leading position in the definition and influence of the strategic choices that Italian Viticulture and Enology makes.
