Z historie projektu:

SMARTRURAL Project – 1st  Meeting

The first meeting of partners in the Erasmus + KA203 project – Strategic Partnerships for higher education Towards smart rural tourism development in Europe (acronym SMARTRURAL) took place at Eskisehir Osmangazi Universitesi in Turkey from 7th  to 10th of November.

SMARTRURAL Project – 2nd Meeting

The second meeting of the SMARTRURAL project partners (Erasmus + KA203 project – Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education Towards smart rural tourism development in Europe, acronym SMARTRURAL) took place on the 27th of March, 2020 online. The project concerns modern forms of education in the field of rural development and rural tourism. The meeting took a slightly different form than planned and took place online. Originally, the partners were to meet at the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), but unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic thwarted the plans. During the meeting, participants shared their experiences on the first activities in the project, and also referred to the planned course programs and modules addressed to students, but also to people dealing with rural tourism. In the near future, all partners participating in the project will deal with specific topics divided into modules, i.e.: introduction to tourism (smart tourism), sustainability, creativity and design, design thinking, modern business models, digitization. Syllabuses, methodology, and initial proposals for a pilot program will be developed as the next step. The next meeting is scheduled for late October in Alicante (Spain).

SMARTRURAL Project – 3rd Meeting

The third meeting of the SMARTRURAL project partners (Erasmus + KA203 project – Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education Towards smart rural tourism development in Europe) took place on 15th October, 2020. It concerns modern forms of education in the field of rural development and rural tourism. The meeting was online due to the pandemic situation. It was hosted by the University of Alicante (Spain).
