Institute completes research studies

The Institute of Transport of Tourism (ITT) has recently completed two extensive research studies.

Dr Richard Weston (left) and Nick Davies (below) have produced a practitioner manual for the European-funded project 'Greenways Product'. The eighteen-month, international collaborative project was aimed to promote active tourism on European Greenways by marketing tour packages.

As part of the project ITT undertook an extensive review of research on the evaluation and monitoring of walking and cycling resources, which have underpinned the manual for practitioners who evaluate the economic, environmental and social impacts of greenways.

The research will supplement academic papers and Dr Weston hopes to present the findings at next years' 'VeloCity' conference, the international conference for cycling professionals.

ITT research into European Passenger Rights and Tourism Policy carried out for the European parliament has also been released.

In conjunction with Eurac Research Centre, Bolzano, ITT undertook the study (the first of its kind), to explore the effects of European legislation on Passenger Rights and Tourism Policy.

The research is available here.
