CERIDES is happy to announce that the OenoWatch project, an Integrated Project under the Restart 2016-2020 Program of the Research & Innovation Foundation (ΙδΕΚ), is now in full implementation! CERIDES, the Center of Excellence of E.U.C. Research Center, acts as the Coordinator for the implementation of the project.

The aim of the OenoWatch project is to study, develop, implement and pilot a holistic phytosanitary and plant protection system based on the use of unmanned aerial vehicles and a series of cutting-edge technologies, as well as the establishment of a Competence Center for Precision Viticulture.

During the difficult pandemic times of the past 14 months, the OenoWatch Consortium has been working hard on the background to get the OenoWatch project up and running both administratively and operationally. The Consortium has already finalised a number of Project Deliverables, and is currently implementing a wide range of activities across the spectrum of the OenoWatch project scope. A full set of OenoWatch communication and dissemination outlets will be announced very soon.

The Consortium of the OenoWatch project includes the Technical University of Cyprus (CUT), the consulting, services & training organization ‘DRONINT’, the consulting, & training organization EUROSUCCESS Consulting, the Development Agency of Lemesos, as well as the Cypriot Winery Ekfraseis.

Dr. Christos Dimopoulos, co-Director of CERIDES, acts as the Project Coordinator of OenoWatch.
