Regarding WP3, wine production is facing several challenges due to the global climate change. The exploitation of the natural microbiota is one of the strategies for a sustainable production and wine quality. The main objective of this secondment is to choose appropriate natural microbiota and innovative bioactives for winemaking.

In relation to dissemination (WP5) and transfer of knowledge (WP6) a major objective of the vWISE project is to disseminate know-how and knowledge, and this is an objective of this secondment as well.
