Webinar: Introduction to Scientific Tourism Thursday 1st October, 12-2PM
SCITOUR is a collaborative project centred around the development and promotion of ‘scientific tourism’. Scientific tourism puts scientific learning at the heart of the tourist experience, giving visitors a deeper knowledge and appreciation of a specific place, while taking scientific education into adventurous settings that inspire as well as educate.
SCITOUR brings together academic research institutions and small-to-medium businesses with the goal of helping tourism businesses in remote regions to develop and market new products based around scientific learning. SCITOUR is part-funded by the European Union’s Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme (NPA), and involves partners from Scotland, Iceland, Finland and Greenland.
Through SCITOUR, we aim to create an umbrella organisation that gives participating businesses access to an established scientific tourism brand and identity, a website where they can market their products, access to transnational promotional campaigns, and a supportive network of businesses offering similar products.
This webinar will provide an introduction to the project and the idea of scientific tourism, as well as enable us to gain the perspectives of those working in tourism businesses. You will hear from the researchers at the centre of the project, as well as one of our key partners – Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust. As we are right at the beginning of the SCITOUR project, this is your chance to help shape its content and direction.
Through a mix of presentations and open discussions, this webinar will cover:
Aims of the SCITOUR project
What is (or what could be) scientific tourism?
SCITOUR brand and marketing
Ways forward, and how you can get involved
