A two-day in-class and online seminar on Future Challenges in Wine Industry, such as climate change and sustainable production and management, will take place at Hochschule Geisenheim University (HGU) in the first week of December 2020. Experts from HGU and University of West Attica in Athens (UNIWA) will talk about the conversions the wine world is facing and the challenges wine professionals will have to cope with in the not too distant future.
The impact of climate change on viticulture and winemaking practices as well as the challenges of the wine market and tourism are some of the topics that will be covered in lectures of the seminar on December 3 - 4, 2020.
Students, scientists and people employed in the wine sector are welcome to participate in the seminar either physically in the classroom HS 32 at HGU (up to 20 participants) or online through a web conference tool (up to 60 participants).
Similarly, Greek students and early stage researchers as well as people from the wine sector in Greece will join the event at the same time, either physically in a classroom of UNIWA or online through the web conference tool. Lectures will be held alternately in Geisenheim and Athens and will be broadcasted live.
Synchronous Greek and German wine tastings will round off the program on both days. Participants in the classroom will be able to taste the wines, while online participants will have the possibility to listen to the wine descriptions and learn about the different grape varieties and wine regions.
This event is organised as part of the WOW project, a cooperation between HGU and UNIWA focusing on Future Challenges in Viticulture, Enology and Wine Business (Zukünftige Herausforderungen in Weinbau, Oenologie und Weinwirtschaft), funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funds from the German Federal Foreign Office.
The course is part of admission "Beschränkte Teilnehmendenanzahl: WOW Seminar".
