HCL submitted their article to the International Centre for Black Sea Studies (ICBSS)
The paper is a collective effort by all partners to reflect on the overall project experience and offer some insights to the broader community of tourism practitioners in the Black Sea (and potentially beyond). It will be published by the International Centre for Black Sea Studies (ICBSS), a renowned organisation very active in promoting policy dialogue in the region. The paper provides an overview of the project and builds upon the overall assessment of the workshops and interactions with local stakeholders, as well as the big data analysis, to provide a reflection on lessons learned as emerging through the exchanges with tourism stakeholders across the Black Sea region. It also offers a number of specific recommendations towards a greater use of 4.0 technologies for sustainable tourism development across the Black Sea region.
