International Centre for Black Sea Studies just published a paper on Exploiting Tourism 4.0 potentials for the Black Sea as part of the Tourism 4.0 for the Black Sea (T4BS) Project, co-funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).
The Tourism 4.0 initiative aims to unlock the innovation potential of tourism by enabling collaboration between all stakeholders of the smart tourism ecosystem to co-create enriched experiences with the help of the key enabling technologies from Industry 4.0 . The basic idea is to ensure that the visitors actually respect local inhabitants and preserve environmental balance.

The Common Maritime Agenda for the Black Sea (CMA) envisages the creation of the Black Sea Virtual Knowledge Centre (BSVKC) with a view of providing a centralized platform for information on blue economy to the stakeholders and to improve synergies across the stakeholders and blue economy related projects in the Black Sea.
