Tourism 4.0


The DATES Project Kicked Off

The main objective of DATES is to explore approaches and options for the deployment of a secure and trusted tourism data space, ensuring transparent control of data access, use and re-use.

During one year, the 13 European partners will come together to set the basis of the European Data Space for Tourism.

DATES kick-off meeting was organised in the framework of TIS Summit on the 4th November 2022 in Seville to define the path to achieve 4 main results:

  • Create an integrated and comprehensive tourism data ecosystem managed by a common governance.
  • Identify high-priority data sets and define rules for their usage.
  • Develop a blueprint of the technological and non-technological elements that will define a tourism data space.
  • Incorporate resilience and sustainability as transversal pillars of the tourism data space.


About the DATES project

Activities such as mapping, roadmapping, surveys, webinars, workshops, awareness raising, information campaigns and communication channels creation will set the basis of the European Data Space of Tourism, creating spaces of dialogue and exchange among all actors of the tourism industry (private, public, academia), including other data spaces (smart cities and communities, mobility, skills, energy, green deal…) which will boost the deployment of the European Data Space for Tourism, together with high level experts and stakeholders that will be contributing and supporting the implementation of the DATES project.

The voice of the whole tourism ecosystem, from the local to the national level, from SMEs to big companies, research entities, universities and networks will be heard being part of the blueprint that will be presented to the European Commission defining and setting the basis of the European Data Space of Tourism
