Call for proposals – Nautical Routes for Europe
The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) has launched a call for proposals with a view to develop and promote transnational touristic thematic routes and transnational thematic tourism products in the fields of nautical tourism and water sports tourism.
The main objective is to support the development of transnational thematic tourism products and their promotion through the creation of transnational touristic thematic routes in coastal regions in the areas of nautical tourism and water sports tourism at sea. The routes created by the projects must be innovative in the sense that they result in a diversification of the coastal and maritime tourism offer in Europe.
The total budget for this action is EUR 1,500,000.
