Brock, Acadia University sign landmark grape and wine research pact
Published on May 03 2013
Addressing the research and education needs of the Canadian grape and wine industry will be made easier with a new partnership established this week between Brock University and Acadia University.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the two institutions encouraging collaboration between Brock’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) and Acadia’s Atlantic Wine Institute.
The MoU will facilitate knowledge exchange and joint projects in the areas of viticulture, oenology, business, culture and policy research that address the needs of the Canadian grape and wine industry.
“This collaboration with the Atlantic Wine Institute aligns perfectly with CCOVI’s goals,” said CCOVI Director Debbie Inglis. “With formal research partnerships at the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre, and now the Atlantic Wine Institute, we have created a coast-to-coast Canadian grape and wine research network.”
