    The European Union is funding the project Technology Transfer and Improvements to Competitiveness in the Cork Sector in the SUDOE Area (SUBERVIN) which includes the south of France, Spain and Portugal. The project researches ways of improving cork forest management, improving cork wine closures and adapting corks to the specific needs of wine oxygenation. It will also provide an online meeting point for research groups, cork companies and wineries. This is the first international project headed by VITEC, The Wine Technology Park, which was set up in 2009 and carries out research into the interaction between wine and cork.
