Professor of Food Technology at the universities of Valencia – at which she became the first female registered agricultural engineer in 1966 – and of Navarra, Professor Casp was known internationally for her work and publications in the field of food technology and safety.

A member of the Spanish delegation to the OIV, she presided the "Training" Expert Group in 2001-2007 and contributed greatly to the implementation of the database of international vitivinicultural training programmes. She was further involved in the university and research sector as President of the International University Association of Wine (AUIV), an OIV observer.

She will be remembered as a warm person with highly appreciated human qualities and recognised scientific competences.

The OIV shares in the pain of her husband and family.
