EU funding for the tourism sector: a roadmap

The European Commission’s Directorate General “Enterprise and Industry” has just published a guide on EU funding for the tourism sector. The guide contains a short description of all the major EU Funds from which activities related to tourism can be funded, as well as some project examples that can serve as inspiration. Information about funding for fisheries areas under EMFF is included, with some project examples from FARNET. This guide may be particularly useful for FLAGs in areas where tourism is being developed. Those FLAGs might be able to advise their tourism actors on the different funding sources available to them. It is also worth visiting the website of DG Enterprise and Industry to see calls for transnational cooperation projects related to tourism. FLAGs might be in a good position to stimulate such cooperation through their network of transnational contacts.
