Meeting with the selected SMEs of the European project CulTourData

Today, 7th August, we have held a meeting with the selected companies of the European project CulTourData in “El Círculo”, headquarters of the Red Circular Fab of the Diputación de Cáceres.

Members of the 10 selected SMEs have attended, in person and online, with the aim of taking the next steps in the implementation of the project, and begin to develop the activities planned for each one.

The CulTourData project is funded by the COSME (Competitiveness of Enterprises and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) programme of the European Commission. The main objective is to support European Cities of Culture (ECoC) to achieve a sustainable growth of cultural tourism, through collaboration with cultural and creative industries, and innovation based on data and digitisation.

We thank the attendees for their participation, and Maribel Orjuela, director of dynamisation of El Círculo for giving us this space.


The offer includes training to increase skills and competencies with extensive knowledge transfer and matchmaking events for cooperation accompanied by an exchange of best practices and mentoring support.
These capacity-building activities will enable the company to implement new practices in its businesses.

The enterprise will be supported with 7,000 if it will be selected to be one of the beneficiaries of Tourism 4.0.

The call is aimed at a small or medium-sized enterprise located in one of the 5 countries such as Italy, Portugal, Spain, Malta, and Croatia from one of the following categories:

  • Hotels and similar accommodations

  • Travel agencies, tour operators, booking services, and related businesses

An investment that implies “a historic opportunity to change the Spanish tourism model, which is heavily dependent on factors such as price, seasonality and lack of product diversification”, according to Adestic
