O que fazemos
As rotas culturais e o património europeus representam um recurso de inovação, criatividade, criação de pequenas empresas e desenvolvimento de produtos e serviços de turismo cultural. A promoção do turismo cultural é um próximo passo lógico no desenvolvimento das Rotas Culturais, uma vez que este tipo de turismo se baseia na singularidade e autenticidade de destinos remotos, conhecimentos locais, habilidades, tradições e patrimônio. CULTOUR+ é uma Parceria Estratégica Erasmus+ no campo do Ensino Superior com a missão de acompanhar e promover ideias empresariais inovadoras e criativas em gestão cultural para o turismo cultural, termal e religioso (serviços de alojamento, serviços de guia, museus, atividades complementares de experiências religiosas (como peregrino) ou termais, design de lembranças, etc.) Procuramos empreendedores comprometidos para fomentar e desenvolver as suas idéias e oferecemos um ensino universitário personalizado de alta qualidade para que os conteúdos teóricos possam ser transferidos para suas idéias de negócio e enriquecer a sua experiência profissional.
