Be.CULTOUR community

In the frame of the Horizon 2020 funded project “Beyond Cultural Tourism (Be.CULTOUR)”, the European Regions Research and Innovation Network (ERRIN) is building a community of passionate regional representatives committed to shaping the future of cultural tourism in their territory. The Be.CulTour community will drive the engagement of innovation ecosystem stakeholders dedicated to fostering regional development through circular cultural tourism! Learn more about the Be.CULTOUR project here.

12 selected regional representatives will have access to a fully-funded peer-learning programme inspired by the pilot / mirror approach: via quarterly community conversations, dedicated interviews, tailored webinars, and offline learning labs (Brussels in 2022 and Naples in 2023), the community members will interact closely with their peers located in the 6 pilots already partners to the project.  

Together with representatives from Aragon (Spain), Basilicata (Italy), Larnaca (Cyprus), Vojvodina (Serbia) and the cross-border area of North-East Romana and Moldova, the 12 selected applicants will work together on shared challenges linked to deprived, remote, or over-exploited areas. They will mirror the methodologies and tools developed throughout the project while actively engaging in networking and training activities dedicated to the transfer and uptake of innovative solutions. Territories featuring unique heritage assets will be at the heart of a learning journey that will focus on how to create attractive destinations after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The deadline for applications to join the Be.CULTOUR community is postponed to the 8th of June 2021, 18:00 CEST.
