Reply To: Waters for sustainable change – inland areas for sustainable tourism


Dear Conceicao Canavilhas

Our expression of interest:

We are also very interested (like the Departemental Council of Herault) in your project proposal and we would like to participated in it. We have participated in several projects financed by InterregMed and IPA Slovenia-Croatia programs. CASTWATER project (Coastal Areas Sustainable Tourism WATER management in the Mediterranean), financed by InterreMed programme during the last programming period, was a project that dealt with sustainable water management issues in the Mediterranean. Namely, as one of the most important results was a framework for assessing sustainability water usage for tourism business entities that was formulated as a self-assessment tool for business entities. This tool helped them in assessing the sustainability level of their water consumption. Additionally, we have also participated in projects financed by IPA Slovenia-Croatia program (Wellness Istra, and Malvasia Tour Istra) that were focused on creating thematic itineraries. Therefore, this project would be great continuation of our efforts.

Institute of Agriculture and Tourism is a public research institution that links research in the fields of agriculture (biotechnical sciences) and tourism (social sciences). The main focus of tourism research group is placed on two research areas: sustainable tourism and special interest tourism. Based on these areas, the tourism group is divided into two sub-groups. Depending on the issues studied in particular projects, additional researcher from biotechnical sciences are included.
Currently, there are eight employees working in tourism research group but we have intention to develop the research group in the next five years.

We are available for all additional information and contacts.
