TOURMEDASSETS "Tourism, a great potential for competitiveness for the MED regions"

The Mediterranean area is a major tourist attraction worldwide. Thousands of tourists come to the Mediterranean to enjoy the big tourist attraction offered. Which assets can be stimulated through policy measures topromote tourism sustainable development and growth?

"Tourism is surely one of the major sources of development for the Mediterranean area, but it still is not exploiting all its potentials fully. With the project TOURMEDASSETS we aim to set up an analytical framework in order to identify vulnerable areas and potential areas of development in due time, enabling MED regions to act rapidly and implement effective strategies and create added value for the economy of the territory"

Sinergies have started!

Synergies and cross-fertilization activities between the projects are taking place after they had the opportunity to meet during the Speed-dating organized in the Med Maritime launch event. These practices will definitely enrich the projects results, which will be useful to fulfill the essential idea of the integrated maritime approach call.

The POSEIDON and CAIMANs projectes are co-organizing a workshop -Nov. 24th- on "Air quality in Mediterranean port-cities". Both projects will put together their methodologies and best practices in relation with ship emissions.

The MERMAID and SMARTPORT projects are working together as ports are the main objects of study of both projects. To improve and expand their results will be a share of information and cross-fertilization of their stakeholders and workshop results.
