BIC WINS GRANT ON THE EU-COSME: CENTOUR PROJECT

Business & Innovation Center (BIC) and its partners have been awarded an EU grant on the COSME: CEnTOUR Project, that aims at boosting sustainable tourism development and capacity building of tourism SME’s, through transnational cooperation and knowledge transfer.

The CEnTOUR project (Circular Economy in Tourism) implements a capacity building and support scheme for SMEs of the tourism sector in 5 European and COSME countries - Italy, Spain, North Macedonia, Moldova and Greece. The project will lead enterprises to reach different levels of circular economy innovations within a transition system perspective, therefore forwarding solutions that are partly SMEs, but also try to go beyond the single SMEs system level, especially through reverse supply chain and symbiosis. This will help SMEs to develop effective marketing and promotional capabilities leveraging on their sustainability factor.

The project start is planned on 16 of September 2020, and operational activities will be conducted in the next 3 years. The total project budget is 1.329.404 Euros.
