During our two-day kick-off conference in the Pavia region, where we introduced the e-CREATE project to you and set the milestones for its further implementation.

By promoting the use of new technologies the project aims at increasing the competitiveness of service-oriented tourism enterprises in rural areas along cultural routes. Based on the identification of good practices, the project elaborates policy recommendations.

In particular, these proposals will be addressing decision-makers on local and regional levels in order to provide a basis for the enhancement of supply-side oriented policies.

Components of the conference were:

•           an introduction to the e-CREATE project and other thematically related EU projects
•           a more in-depth view and expert opinions during panel discussions
•           workshops to debate about the success factors of the identified good practices
•           a first insight to the anticipated e-CREATE pilot project
