Tourism 4.0

Newsletter #2

 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

The project, launched in November 2022, has carried out an intense mapping of data sharing initiatives with the support of the project partners.

All these initiatives have been analysed, and a study on the Gaps and overlaps has been implemented. The whole study, will be available in June as a public deliverable of the project.

In the mean time, here you have an article summarising the activities implemented.


We are proud to introduce two new social media post threads.

Dates Short Videos

We have introduced short videos featuring project consortium members discussing their motivation, expected results, long-term impact, and what is next after the DATES project concludes.


We have added a new informative resource to our website with the launch of our DATES project blog.
