The Call for Proposals COS-WP2014-3-15.02 “Maximising synergies between tourism, high-end and creative industries” has been published by the European Commission, Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME).

 

The general purpose of the present “Maximising synergies between tourism, high-end and creative industries” call is to support the development and promotion of one (new) European Route around one high-end / luxury product, to test the possibility of developing synergies between the tourism and the high-end industries at European level.

 

In the framework of this general purpose, the objective of the current “Maximising synergies between tourism, high-end and creative industries” call is to complement regional and national policies by supporting trans-European cooperation aimed at designing innovative transnational products capitalising on European shared cultural and/or industrial heritage, with a view to contributing to diversify European tourism offer.

 

The “Maximising synergies between tourism, high-end and creative industries” call aims to:

- facilitate exchanges of good practices, the development of networks and of discussion platforms between public decision-makers and the private sector, in the fields of cultural and industrial tourism;

- facilitate and stimulate public-private partnerships and the integration of enterprises of the cultural tourism sector into regional development strategies;

- improve the quality of the European tourism offer by a strengthened cross-border cooperation; and/or

- strengthen the management skills of public or private bodies in charge of developing thematic tourism products.

 

The theme of the current “Maximising synergies between tourism, high-end and creative industries” call falls under "transnational cultural or industrial heritage related tourism products" The call. is open to three high-end products which have been selected on the basis of their economic potential and capacity to diversify European offer during the low/medium season in a wide range of Members States: i) perfume, ii) chocolate, iii) jewellery.

The expected result from the current “Maximising synergies between tourism, high-end and creative industries” call is the development and/or promotion of a European Route crossing over at least 5 Member States and showing key steps of the product’s value chain. The Route is expected to cover the historical and contemporary dimensions (how Europeans used to and are cooperating, competing, …).
