Call for Tenders for Targeted Analysis "Carrying capacity methodology for tourism"

The main objective of this service contract is to provide an empirical foundation for destinations and help local leaders assess their situation and identify vulnerabilities in relation to sustainable tourism in the respective territories. This foundation would enable the analysis of carrying capacity for tourism based on innovative and available indicators, including tourist arrivals, internet data, social media reviews, seasonality, and pollution with use of big data, new technologies, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing (HPC) to be applied to the management of any European tourist destination.

The project will also provide recommendations mainly to regional and local practitioners, as well as European, on how to identify and consider their specific territorial context and specificities for measurement of the carrying capacities of tourist destinations across Europe for better management and planning.

The objective of this activity is to provide new evidence to understand how local, national and EU policies can best manage and measure carrying capacity in tourist destinations to achieve most benefit for cities, regions and locals in a sustainable perspective.
