How does COSME, the EU’s programme for the Competitiveness of SMEs, support the tourism sector? What are the ingredients that make a successful EU funded project?
These were the main topics discussed during the Showcase Conference on Tourism held on 19 March in Brussels.
In 2017 over 13 million people in the European Union (EU) were employed in economic activities related to tourism. Nearly 8 million of these people worked in the food and beverage industry, while 2 million were employed in transport.
