28/10/2008 EU Funding Sources Overview, October 2008

EU funding for activities related to tourism is spread over many programmes and initiatives. This is partly because there is no single European tourism policy and therefore no specific EU programme to finance all tourism development projects and actions. At the European Day of Tourism Event on 7th October 2008, European Commission officials presented a range of EU funding programmes where financial support may be sought for tourism related activities. This page presents the main EU programmes with a series of slides addressing a number of EU policy areas, for downloading.  

09/05/2008 ENAT Study Report No. 3. Towards 2010: Disability Policy Challenges and Actions for the European Tourism Sector

The title of this report refers to 2010, the year which was set as the end-point of the European Disability Action Plan. The plan was launched in 2003, to combat discrimination and improve the participation of disabled citizens in European society. The report examines European tourism policy developments over the past two decades and argues that new policies are needed to make tourism accessible for all on a much wider scale. This is due to three critical factors: global competition, demographic ageing - with more older and disabled citizens wanting to travel, and the strengthening of disability rights, which will bring increased demand for accessible tourism services. The report presents new policy objectives and targets, and a 'Road Map' for how accessible tourism policies might be implemented across Europe in the years ahead.
