Innovation and Capacity Building in Higher Education for Cultural Management, Hospitality and Sustainable Tourism in European Cultural Routes (CULTOUR+) is a Strategic Partnership (SP) of universities, local governments, SMEs and NGOs, that following the mainlines of the Higher Education Modernisation Agenda, is offering high quality and innovative courses and tools, integrating innovation, international mobility and cross-border cooperation to enhance capacity building in higher education curricula in the fields of cultural tourism and hospitality, cultural management and shared cultural heritage.
Participating organizations share the concern, expertise and experience in proving that cultural management, sustainable tourism and European Cultural Routes and Heritage can be a source to promote creative, high-quality work for young graduate and postgraduate entrepreneurs. As well as SME generation, networking, co-working and clustering, CULTOUR+ promotes intercultural dialogue and other transversal skills, specially, creativity, entrepreneurship, cooperation and global awareness.
Cultour+ is coaching a small number of selected business plans and projects, taking them as real life examples and models through the training program, aiming to take them as far as possible in their first starting-up phase. This way, expertise and learning is highly concentrated in a reduced number of projects selected by their innovation and originality, sustainability and employment creation capacity.
