SECTION 2: QUALITATIVE FACTORS

 

3

Dimension of identified target groups
Target groups are mainly agro-chemical companies, that can sell the product to wine producers, and wine producers that can buy directly the product.

These target groups are very large because Pheronosperal problem has a global dimension, and involve all wine producers.

 

 

4

Evaluation of financial Risks for R&D result
Around 30.000,00 € for final definition of a tested and evaluated product.

The sum foresees an on-field tests series to realize an evaluation based on and validate the product on real conditions

 

 

 

SECTION 3: IDENTIFICATION OF FINANCING SOURCES

SECTION 3: FINAL EVALUATION

It is requested a final evaluation considering the funding opportunities you believe most suitable for the exploitation of the R&D result, considering the possibility of the creation of a spin-off, further research, in particular, a cost/benefit analysis and a financial projection for the R&D result, type of collaboration identified (i.e. Licensing Agreement, Technical Cooperation, Joint Venture, Manufacturing Agreement, Commercial Agreement with Technical Assistance, Creation of a spin-off, Joint further development)…
The project result is an antifungal compositions that can be used in both conventional and organic or integrated viticulture with the aim to reduce the copper use (according the new European law about the additional limitation to the copper use in biological viticulture – EC Regulation n. 473/2002 of the Commission of 15 march 2002).

The advanced stage of product development needs only an on-field testing phase, absolutely necessary to characterize results and to implement a product ready-to-market.

The project, based on the aim to reduce the copper use in agriculture, is interesting for companies that operate in production and marketing of active products against plant pathogens, in particular Plasmopara viticola: the product could be used both in conventional (if synthesized) and in organic or integrated viticulture.

The product is finishing the testing phase and seems to have a great opportunity in the market of grapevine protection from Plasmopara viticola.
