Background information

In October 2001, the ECPGR Steering Committee agreed on the establishment of a Working Group on Vitis, as a result of a request submitted by the project partners of the EU-funded project on Vitis, which was terminated in February 2002. The objective is to strengthen European collaboration for the purpose of improving the conservation and sustainable use of Vitis genetic resources in Europe.
