The GROWMAT project was approved in September 2016. The aim of the project is the creation of new business opportunities in Accessible Tourism for seniors and others, particularly extending the out-of-season market.
Specifically, the concept of the program is to create educational and training courses to help entrepreneurs in tourism and hospitality, training providers and generally any people who are associated with customer services to meet elderly needs and to promote accessibility.
GROWMAT will be implemented by nine partners from different European countries, with a mix of skills and experiences in training of variable groups, such as elderly and entrepreneurs. More specifically, the partners involved are:
- Learning South West
- HAAGA-HELIA AMMATTIKORKEAKOULU
- Age UK
- T2 Consulting
- Srednja sola za gostinstvo in turizem Maribor
