On the 22nd and 23rd of June, Lisbon, Portugal, welcomed the second Transnational Project Meeting of the SmartVitiNet project. The meeting was hosted by ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa, providing an ideal setting for this international gathering dedicated to revolutionizing the viticulture industry.
The two-day event was marked by engaging discussions on the SmartVitiNet project’s current status and future directions. It served as a platform for fostering cooperative relationships among the partners involved in the project.

Over the course of the two-day event, the meeting unfolded into a series of insightful discussions and strategic planning sessions. The team delved into key areas of the project, including Analytics & Middleware Development, Hardware Development & Configuration, and Data Collection, among others.
The second day of the meeting brought an exciting twist, with a visit to Ramilo Wines. This excursion offered the team a first-hand experience of a live setting where the data collection process will be implemented. It was a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between theoretical planning and practical application, providing valuable insights for the project’s next steps.

This phase represents a critical juncture where the project’s concepts and strategies are tested in a real-world context. The combination of academia and winemaking offered a unique and inspiring backdrop for the discussions, reminding all participants that just like the best wines, groundbreaking ideas also take time to mature.
