Project Summary

Tourism is one of the sectors most hardly hit during the COVID19 pandemic. The InnoXenia PLUS project has been designed in such a way so as to allow the exploitation of the tangible and intangible results of the previous Adrion InnoXenia project, optimize their value, enhance their impact and facilitate their integration at multiple levels, also taking into account the pandemic impact on tourism.
It, thus, pays particular attention to the sustainability of the results and the enhancement of their impacts at regional level through direct involvement of local and regional policy makers, stakeholders and enterprises.
The valorisation procedure ensures that all possible channels and opportunities are used so that InnoXenia’s outcomes reach as many potential beneficiaries as possible, in order to provide benefits that meet the specific needs of a wider audience of beneficiaries, achieving so the longevity and sustainability of the project.
The project envisaged activities:
1. Organization of phygital events, either in person or online, in all partner countries promoting the InnoXenia outcomes and results at national/regional level.
2. Organization of phygital stakeholders’ events, either in person or online, in all partner countries addressed to tourism stakeholders such as travel agencies, hotels representatives and other tourist operators, promoting practical application of InnoXenia products/practices.
3. Organization of events in cooperation with ADRION National Contact Points, either in person or online, in each partner country providing first-hand information on managing and implementing European projects to future potential beneficiaries hosting project and potential partners on future projects.
4. Enhancement of InnoXenia produced strategies relevant to tourism so as to both address need for Covid 19 negative impact recovery and to make tourism more innovative and resilient to future relevant crises.
InnoXenia Plus will thus increase overall awareness on InnoXenia outputs and results, enhance them and promote their transferability, while facilitating also territorial cooperation in the ADRION partner territories.

Project Summary


Empowering ADRION tourism sector innovation is the way to safeguard the continuation of socio-economic growth of the area, tourism representing one of the most important industries in the area with four countries (Italy, Greece, Croatia, Slovenia) included in the world top 40 in 2015 (ref. Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index - TTCI).
Tourism in the area has to cope with changes in demand and tourist behavior, new emerging markets and socio-economic crises.
The project aims at improving the innovation capability of ADRION tourism sector, relying heavily on innovative products, processes and services that can supplement natural and cultural offerings.
The project will network the transnational ADRION quadruple helix tourism community into an Adriatic Ionian Tourism Technology Platform with active involvement throughout the project. A Tourism Innovation Observatory will provide a platform for modeling ADRION innovative tourism, equipped with a Tourism Innovation Decision Support System providing the ability to evaluate the impact of potential interventions on the competitiveness and sustainability of tourism destinations, structures and services. Based on a wide consensus built in the area among quadruple helix stakeholders a Strategic Agenda on Innovation in Tourism will be produced offering the strategy for tourism innovation enhancement and combined with an Action Plan issuing policy recommendations and guidelines for investments as well as potential accessible funding.
It is expected that the project will simulate a paradigm shift in tourism policies and investments through its innovative approach and enrolled tools. On the other hand it is expected to provide a permanent and lasting effect in regional and local strategies on tourism by technology transfer and capacity building of both public and private sectors and leading to a regional tourism innovation system in the area.
