To facilitate flows of senior tourists in Europe in the low season.
26th September 2013
A new Call for Proposals has been launched under the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (EIP) to facilitate flows of senior tourists in Europe in the low season.
The general objective is to:
- Foster the demand and supply of transnational tourism for seniors (considered as persons from 55 years old and over).
- Improve tourism seasonality patterns across Europe, by contributing to the extension of the tourism season.
- Create innovative tourism packages for seniors, which will be available and sustainable after the EU co-financed period.
- Set up and strengthen sustainable public-private European partnerships, to contribute creating a European tourism domestic market for seniors in the long term.
A budget of €1 million is available for this Call. The maximum available per project is €340,000 for up to 70% of eligible costs. It is expected that up to four projects will be funded.
