“I strongly support the MED-GOLD project as it is designed to build the capacity for wine businesses world-wide to adapt to climate change. The project brings together a team of high calibre researchers and practitioners who are working collaboratively to develop outcomes that will be beneficial to a range of agricultural production sectors. I believe that this project will increase the aggregate impact on society at both European and global level.”
