During the last call no tourism projects have been approved. Supposedly, this is primarily attributable to the priorities of the programme: (1) Capacity for innovation, (2) Efficient management of natural resources, (3) Sustainable transport, which make explicit funding of tourism focused projects difficult. Consequently, more implicit approaches may be required.
