Pilots

INCULTUM innovation is experimented in a broad range of pilot cases across Europe with different geographical locations and a diversity of socio-economic contexts and cultural-natural heritage, with relevant cross-border significance.

Pilot cases are the places for INCULTUM:

  • to develop innovative strategies for a sustainable tourism development, together with stakeholders, local administrations and policy makers
  • to develop innovative strategies for a sustainable tourism development, together with stakeholders, local administrations and policy makers
  • to develop innovative strategies for a sustainable tourism development, together with stakeholders, local administrations and policy makers
  • to develop innovative strategies for a sustainable tourism development, together with stakeholders, local administrations and policy makers

Pilot sites

The project includes 10 pilot cases from 9 different countries covering a variety of geographical contexts:

  1. Spain
  2. Portugal
  3. Slovakia
  4. Italy (Trapani Mountains)
  5. Italy (Garfagnana Appennine)
  6. France
  7. Greece
  8. Albania
  9. Ireland
  10. Sweden

Five pilots have been expressely chosen to constitute two cross-border or cross-thematic cases:

  • Portugal/Spain/Italy-Sicily
  • Greece/Albania

Of course networking, cooperation and knowledge exchange is strongly promoted across all of the pilots.

For their selection, we have prioritised deprived, remote, peripheral and deindustrialized areas or cultural-natural heritage not usually taken into account.

All the pilots are based on existing studies with previous experiences in the selected areas, even if covering also other domains beyond cultural tourism. Consortium partners have already established contacts with local stakeholders, which pave the way to guarantee acceptance and participation of local initiatives, and finally INCULTUM success.
