We are interested in collaboration as a partner within PRIMA projects. Our institute has been working on the subjects of production and research of grape and grape products for many years. Viticulture, fruit growing, plant protection, soil and water resources are the main fields of activity of the institute. We have a good infrastructure, laboratories and technical staff for these areas. We can especially make collaboration on sustainable farming systems.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
Tekirdağ Viticulture Research Instute was established in 1930 to promote the regional grapevine sector with propagation of American grapevine rootstocks for re-establishing vineyards. The institution had mainly focused on rootstock production until scientific research studies based on projects started in 1958. The institute started to conduct projects in collaboration with other institutes to find solutions to all production problems in 1979. Tekirdağ Viticulture Research Instıtute aimed on to promote the viticultural structure via ongoing research and development, education and production activities.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
