Dr Heli Tooman and Project Manager Gristel Leetma attended a meeting for the CUBITUS project in Istanbul, 27-30 April, 2015. The project aims to improve academic knowledge and skills to advise entrepreneurs, particularly in the tourism sector with a focus on senior tourism. The CUBITUS partners are universities, businesses and consultant firms from eight countries (Austria, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Turkey and UK).
A collection of guidelines on senior tourism have been compiled and will be made available in seven languages to be distributed to stakeholders. Three tourism based companies are in the process of developing products targeting seniors.
The project is financed by EACEA Lifelong Learning Programme.
