Despite the economic crisis of 2008, Europe remains the n°1 tourism destination in the world. Taking into account its links to other key sectors such as culture, food and transport, tourism employs in Europe around 17 million people and contributes to EU GDP by almost 10%

European tourism is confronted with many challenges, as confirmed by the recent Covid-19 events; starting with the need to constantly innovate and improve quality and security.

We need tour operators specialised in Industrial Heritage promotion

HECTOR intends to provide already trained persons with skills, competences and knowledge in line with market trends, by proposing a course and a work-based experience focused on a specific topic but not forgetting transversal skills as these represent major gaps and shortages reported by employers

Nine partners coming from Italy, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Spain, Austria, Germany and Belgium will thus cooperate to train 55 Tourist operators specialized on industrial heritage ready to access the market, filling the gap in skills, competence and knowledge reported by the tourism market
