Winetech Knowledge Transfer
Winetech focuses mainly on the transfer of factual knowledge, i.e. the results of South African as well as international scientific research.
Even though the most popular information seeking behaviour of producers, viticulturists and winemakers is to obtain practical information via their peers, it is important to complement this form of information with verified factual knowledge. This is in order to prevent the possible spread of misinformation.
Winetech acts as an intermediary in the knowledge exchange process between researchers and practitioners. Due to limited human resources Winetech is restrained in its ability to host interactive knowledge transfer events and as a result makes use of third parties through funding and contractual agreements. The exchange of practical knowledge is also promoted by these Winetech sponsored third parties.
