Short description of the project:

EUROPETOUR was supported by the European ERASMUS+ funding scheme 2015 – 2018. It aimed at linking the knowledge and resource bases of ten different partners across Europe, representing culture, tourism, training providers, local and regional authorities, entrepreneurs, consultants, and cultural tourism networks. The project is an answer to the continuing vocational training needs of cultural-touristic service providers from culture and tourism in rural areas. Within the project, ten European partners from eight European regions developed  nine training modules and guidelines in order to qualify all interested parties for generating attractive cultural tourism offers.
