Sources of EU funding for tourism-related activities

05-07-2017

There is no specific EU fund dedicated to tourism as such. However, although not strictly focused on tourism, a number of EU funds may help to boost its prospects and address its challenges. Depending on the priorities of each EU funding programme, various legal entities (such as public bodies, companies, SMEs, research organisations, universities, non-governmental organisations and tourism cluster initiatives) may benefit from EU funding in order to run activities that may have a positive impact on tourism.
