A short description of the entity

Ca’ Foscari University of Venice is a public University with a national and international outstanding reputation for academic excellence in both teaching and research. Since its establishment in 1868, as the first Italian University devoted to commerce and economics, it has been growing and developing new relevant research fields.

Currently, research activities are structured along four major areas, namely: economics and management, humanities, foreign languages and literatures, and mathematical, physical and natural sciences.

In addition, the Department of Economics has developed experiences on the following topics: regional economics and development, reuse of cultural heritage, sustainable tourism development, quantitative and qualitative analysis. The finalization of key policy guidelines on the Integrated Coastal Zone Management in the Mediterranean (ICZM) is a key achievement as well as the vast experience in the management of cooperation projects related to all the mentioned fields.

A short description of the role of your entity in the project:

The previous long lasting experience of PP4 in the analysis of the common patterns of the sustainable tourism sector is an asset in developing in WP3 shared ICT’s methodologies and tools for diagnosis, modeling and evaluation of tourism destination in the long term perspective of a balanced and harmonious need to enhance simultaneously the attractiveness, a sustainable economic source growth and the cultural and environmental heritage preservation of the Mediterranean tourist destinations.

A short paragraph on what you expect from the ALTER ECO project:

We strongly believe in the enhancement of the capacity building of the public and private tourism sector related stakeholders in tackling the challenges of an irreversible increasing impact and relevance of the tourism economy, tailoring responses to the destination cycle balancing conflicts between landscape preservation and tourism growth pressures through an effective utilization of new common ICT methodologies and tools for diagnosis, modeling and evaluation of the existent sustainability patterns of the MED tourism destinations.
