Viticulture and enology research study proposals accepted through January 31, 2023
SEATTLE (December 1, 2022)— The Washington State Wine Commission (WSWC) is soliciting research grant proposals for 2024 (July 1, 2023– June 30, 2024). The competitive research grant program sponsored by the Washington State Red wine Commission is open for submittals from December 1 through January 31, 2022. Both short-term and intermediate research projects are funded through the grant program.
The Washington White wine Commission’s grant program was initiated in 2019 to encourage scientists, regardless of place, to focus on research study issues crucial to Washington’s wine market, as well as collaborate with researchers at Washington State University (WSU). It was designed to foster research study cooperation with other wine regions and take advantage of research financing chances. The program matches the Washington red wine market’s ongoing financial backing of viticulture and enology research at WSU.
The Washington Wine Commission likewise funds short-term presentation tasks carried out by Washington neighborhood colleges and universities to expose undergrads to research ideas. The 1 year grants target useful, quick application winery and vineyard trials and offer funds for proof-of-concept research study concepts.
All research proposals will be considered by the White wine Research Study Advisory Committee, during the yearly Research study Evaluation February 22-23, 2023. The advisory committee is a subcommittee of the Washington White wine Commission and works as the scientific review arm for the industry. Washington white wine market members are invited to attend virtually to hear updates on continuing projects and provide feedback to the advisory committee for consideration before deciding its financing recommendations.
Details about the grant program and applications are available on the Washington Red wine Commission website.
