Granting Accessible Tourism for Everyone

17/11/2019 | 0 comments

GATE project logo In the cross-border project GATE the collaborating Austrian and Italian partners promote barrier-free tourism for all in Alpine regions, aiming to expand the accessibility of natural heritage sites and contribute to sustainable regional development.

The project will develop and disseminate the following instruments:

  • Guidelines for inclusive tourism in Alpine regions,
  • Communication standards based on „design for all“,
  • Inclusive technical applications for tourism platforms and sites,
  • Handbook and training for practitioners,
  • Information material on inclusive tourism for broad dissemination.

Project Partners

At pilot sites innovative technical applications are being implemented which support site access and experiences of visitors. These include sensors for barrier-free parking spaces, multimodal mobile apps, virtual and augmented reality solutions.

In GATE Salzburg Research carries out studies on barrier-free tourism (e.g. international best practice examples, success factors and indicators), supports the monitoring and evaluation of the pilot sites, and the transfer of knowledge to allow more regional innovations for inclusive tourism.
