Inno’vin, AgriFood FVG, INNOVI and ADVID are the four European clusters collaborating in the EPAWI – European Partnership for Auxiliary Wine industry Innovation project, whose main objective is to launch and consolidate the Wine Innovation Cluster Alliance – WICA, a European strategy for innovation in the wine value chain.

Representing an important part of the wine ecosystems in France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, the four clusters aim to boost the internationalization of the wine industry’s ancillary companies through the creation of a network of SMEs whose objective is to learn about the market and its innovation trends. To this end, a WICA network will be created, whose objectives are to promote a resilient value chain in the grape and wine sector through global cooperation of clusters and Business Support Organisations, to address the challenges presented by grape and wine producers through cross-sectoral innovation and the involvement of European ancillary companies, and to promote and facilitate the international development of ancillary companies.

With implementation from September 2021 to September 2024, EPAWI has as target markets the wine sectors of the United States of America, Canada, Chile, Argentina, and South Africa.

This project is funded by the European Union’s COSME Programme.

The EPAWI project is implemented by partners INNO’VIN (France), Agrifood FVG (Italy), INNOVI (Spain), ADVID (Portugal), with the support of VINIDEA, and is funded by the European Union’s COSME Programme, G.A. n.101035914
