Innovation and Research

lieviti-dettaglio Article 2 of LR 2\2007 attributed to IRVO the qualification of research body, recognizing the value of the activity carried out in this sense since its establishment, as provided for by the Statute Regulation. The need to compete in an increasingly competitive and technological market, within a framework of safeguarding the specific quality and reliability of products and stringent European standards, research activity has taken on an essential role.
The implementation of interventions in the field of scientific, industrial research and pre-competitive development is aimed at the development of new products, processes and technologies in the viticultural, oenological and olive oil fields, enhancing the scientific, instrumental and professional skills of the IRVO.
