Italian viticulture and URV oenology will soon be collaborating

The URV and the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore are long-standing Erasmus+ partners and have established a mobility programme for economics students

On 17 and 18 December, the URV’s rector and vice-Rector for Internationalization received a delegation from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan (UCSC, Italy). The delegation comprised the International vice-Rector, Pier Sandro Cocconcelli, the director of the Department of Science of Viticulture Studies, Stefano Poni, and the director of Global Engagement and International Education, Edilio Mazzoleni, who held meetings in the Faculty of Oenology and the School of Chemical Engineering. There was also a visit to the URV’s Experimental Vineyard Mas dels Frares.

The URV and the UCSC are partners through the International Network of Universities. The two institutions are also long-standing Erasmus+ partners and have established a mobility programme for economics students.

The URV will now pay a return visit in order to continue conversations aimed at creating possible double master’s degree in viticulture and oenology and to advance several other avenues of research and teaching collaboration.
