Tourism 4.0

Newsletter #3


DATES have actively participated and organised several events to disseminate the project’s activities and to continue increasing and consolidating the community hat we believe perfectly capture the essence of the DATES project mission

Data Space Symposium

Data Space Symposium, organised in The Hague on the 21-23 March 2023.
It was a great meeting point with several initiatives related to data spaces, and most of DATES’ partners were present.

DATES was participating in two sessions. In one session together with our sister project DSFT, the DS4SCC and the DS4Mobility. During this session we discussed the common approaches between
the two projects on tourism and we explained the next steps to produce a joint blueprint.

And in another one with the Data Space of Cultural Heritage and the Green Deal Data Space. It was stated the clear synergies that exists among all data spaces and the transversality of the tourism industry 

European Tourism Day

On the 5th May, and after some years without this important celebration, the European Commission organised again a big event to celebrate the European Tourism Day in Brussels at the Charlemagne Building. DATES project, represented by Dolores Ordóñez together with the sister project, DSFT, represented by Jason Stienmetz were invited to participate as speakers and to explain what is being done in the framework of the European Tourism Data Space, together with other speakers, as our partner ARCTUR, represented by Urska Starc-Peceny.

Coalition Workshop

On the 28th March, it was organised by our partner Intellera the coalition workshop, with more than 50 participants.
The aim of the workshop was to co-create, together with a Coalition of stakeholders of the tourism ecosystem, a set of use cases for the development of a Tourism Data Space. In the context of this project, use cases are possible applications of the Tourism Data Space, or else situations in which actors of the tourism ecosystem, in order to improve their business, might find it interesting to share data with other actors.


We’re proud to introduce two new social media post threads that we believe perfectly capture the essence of the DATES project mission.

#DATES4Equality #WomeninData

DATES is aligned with important values that are contributing to a more competitive European economy, as sustainability, resilience and also equality. In our consortium, we have a great number of #womenindata.
And we wanted to support the International Day of Women and Girls in Science by gathering some thought from different professional women working in our partner’s entities.
This campaign also contributed to offer visibility to women in STEM, encouraging women to work in the data field.


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