Creating destinations after the global pandemic: the new competitive advantage of remote areas – Open call for a peer learning programme

2 April 2021

In the frame of the Horizon 2020 funded project “Beyond Cultural Tourism (Be.CulTour)”, the European Regions Research and Innovation Network (ERRIN), is opening a call for regional representatives responsible for cultural tourism to join the Be.CulTour Community. Cultural tourism, including heritage assets, will be at the heart of the peer-learning programme.

12 selected applicants representing their local and regional innovation ecosystems will have the opportunity to benefit from a fully funded peer-learning scheme which will follow a pilot / mirror approach. Via quarterly community conversations, dedicated interviews, tailored webinars, and offline learning labs, the community members will interact closely with 6 pilot ecosystems (Aragon, Larnaca, Basilicata, Vastra Gotaland, Vojvodina and the cross-border area between North-East Romania and Moldova) committed to fostering regional development through circular cultural tourism.

Be.CulTour aims to help regions develop human-centered and circular models for their cultural tourism sector and to accelerate and test innovative solutions in different thematic areas (rural co-living, augmented cultural tourism, natural or religious heritage, etc.).

The open call will be presented on Tuesday, 13th April, between 14.00-16.15 CET, in the frame of a webinar on “Creating destinations after a global pandemic: The new competitive advantage of remote areas” with inspiring keynote speakers and panellists.
