The Board of Directors of the CDTI, approved at its meeting on November 30, 2016, the GLOBALVITI R&D project: “Global solution to improve wine production in the face of climate change based on robotics, IT technology, and biotechnological strategies and the management of the vineyard ”, within the framework of the National Business Research Consortium Strategic Program (CIEN).

Eight partners participate, including some of the most important wineries and companies in the wine sector in Spain, and 13 research organizations.

This initiative will employ more than 165 professionals in the wine sector, of these, 37 are new direct jobs.

This project has been one of the 16 projects selected by the CDTI in the CIEN call for 2016, whose purpose is to finance large experimental development projects in strategic areas of the future and with potential international projection.

The objective of the GLOBALVITI project, which will be carried out over the next four years, with an investment of 8.8 million euros, is to position the Spanish wine sector as a worldwide reference in the search for solutions and application of innovative techniques in relation to wood diseases, the integral management of the vineyard and the vinification processes in a context of climate change. This proposal includes the application of IoT (Internet of the things) and Big data technologies that will facilitate the digital transition of Spanish wineries and the technological take-off of the sector.

Wood diseases are considered as the phylloxera of the XXI s. They currently generate an annual cost of replanting vines in the world of more than 1,100 million euros. In Spain, an average of between 3% and 20% of affected plants is estimated, generating very high economic losses.

The GLOBALVITI initiative is formed by a national wine consortium with eight business partners, in which some of the most important wineries and companies in the wine producing and auxiliary sector of our country are present.

It is led by Bodegas Torres, and has the participation as partners of:

  • Pago de Carraovejas wineries.
  • Ramón Bilbao wineries.
  • Juvé & Camps.
  • Martín Códax wineries.
  • Iberian Pellenc.
  • Nurseries Villanueva Vides.
  • Hispatec.

Thirteen national research groups belonging to 6 autonomous communities and reference researchers, both Spanish and Canadian, Australian and French institutions, participate with these companies.

The GLOBALVITI project plans to mobilize a global induced investment that will exceed 4,000,000 million euros in the 2021-2024 period.
