Working Groups

NECSTouR exchanges good practice about tourism in the Regional Operational Programs and helps Members to maximize the investments on tourism.

"We cannot manage what we cannot measure". Indicators to measure the sustainability performance of destinations are at the core of NECSTouR.

Digital Platforms, either online travel agents or those facilitating the so-called collaborative economy, have a direct impact in the tourism sector.

NECSTouR is engaged in EU 2020 objectives for SMART, SUSTAINABLE and INCLUSIVE destinations, both for citizens and for travellers.


2018 has been declared the European Year of Cultural Heritage by the European Commission. NECSTouR believes that Cultural Heritage is strictly linked with Sustainable Tourism as Culture nourishes Tourism while Tourism is the mean to preserve, appraise and experience culture.

NECSTouR's Working Group on Innovation, Skills and Education aims at exchanging good practices on how to foster wider innovation in tourism mainly but not only by facilitating the digitalization of tourism SMEs.
