Innovation through unity and exchange

Based at the Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne, the Georges CHAPPAZ Institute (IGC) showcases research and higher education in Champagne vine and wine.

IGC expertise draws on a wide range of backgrounds, skills and perspectives, embracing the exact sciences and technology, as well as social sciences and humanities.

IGC was established to promote interdisciplinary collaboration as a driver for scientific innovation, and to enhance the shared heritage of champagne and the Champagne region.

This new initiative is based on close collaboration between the higher education institutions of the region, research clusters, local and regional authorities and businesses of the Champagne region and champagne industry.
