In the framework of the activities realized in cooperation with Unione Italiana Vini, the re-search center OPERA will participate to several conferences organized within the pro-gram of the International Conference SIMEI at Fiera Milano (3-6 November, 2015). These initiatives foster the role of Italy as an international key point on the issue of sustainability, and promote the entrepreneurial efforts of Unione Italiana Vini and the Italian Ministry for the Environment.
