1. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

1.1. Introduction

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) play a crucial role in reaching the objectives of the Europe 2020 Strategy1. Whereas they are considered as crucial engines for growth and job creation, their competitiveness is affected by a limited exploitation of international opportunities and innovation prospects in the Single Market and beyond.

In this context, the Programme for the competitiveness of enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises (2014-2020)2, hereinafter referred to as “COSME”, aims to promote growth and to strengthen the competitiveness and sustainability of enterprises in the European Union.

The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises3 (hereinafter referred to as "EASME" or the "Agency") is entrusted by the European Commission with the implementation, inter alia, of parts of the COSME programme.

In this respect, this call for proposals, managed by EASME, implements parts of the COSME Work Programme 2018, as adopted on 6 November 20174.

1.2. Policy Context
1.2.1. General policy context

This call for proposals is based on Article 25 of the COSME Regulation. It aims at supporting the development and promotion of transnational thematic tourism products exploiting synergies between tourism and cultural and creative industries (CCIs).

Tourism is an important economic sector in the European Union, contributing 10.2% to EU GDP and employing more than 26 million people. The Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union ("TFEU") outlines the Union's competences in this field (Title XXII Tourism, Art. 195), specifying that EU measures to support, coordinate or supplement the actions of the Member States shall be especially aimed at: a) encouraging the creation of a favourable environment for the development of undertakings in this sector; b) promoting cooperation between the Member States, particularly by the exchange of good practices.

In line with the priorities of the Commission, the actions proposed under COSME 2018 work programme contribute to strengthening the competitiveness of the EU tourism sector and increase its contribution to economic growth and jobs in the EU. The actions under COSME will particularly aim, on the one side, at improving the business environment for tourism enterprises, through enhanced socio-economic and market intelligence and exchange of best practices, and on the other side, at diversifying and increasing the visibility of Europe's transnational tourism offer. The actions will be implemented in close cooperation with the industry and the Member States' authorities at all levels, in line with the subsidiarity and proportionality principles.

For this particular call for proposals, the following operational objective of the COSME 2018 work programme is relevant: diversifying and increasing the visibility of Europe's transnational tourism offer. Under this objective, the Commission will co-fund projects which support the promotion and development of transnational thematic tourism products. The aim is to support partnerships, including destinations and SMEs, developing and promoting transnational tourism products through Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs).

1.2.2. Specific policy context

Whilst recognising the important role Member States play in developing and implementing strategies for tourism at national and regional level, the Union should help the development and promotion of transnational tourism products which embody common European shared values and cultural diversity and contribute to promoting Europe as a "unique tourism destination". Therefore the European Commission encourages the development of tourism products on a transnational and European scale.

The Commission has already co-financed numerous transnational actions thereby enhancing the visibility of diverse thematic tourism products (e.g. cycle or hiking routes crossing several countries; pan-European cultural routes etc.)5.

With this Call, the Commission wishes to better exploit synergies between tourism and cultural and creative industries through concrete actions which support SMEs in these industry sectors.

Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs)6 are knowledge and innovation-intensive industries. They are one of the most vibrant sectors of the EU economy: they employ over 12 million people and generate a turnover of approximately €1,500 billion7. At the crossroads between arts, business and technology, they are in a strategic position to trigger innovation spill-overs and add value to other sectors. Specific findings show that industries with stronger links to the creative industries have stronger innovation performance8. CCIs constantly innovate their products, services and business models and thanks to that can contribute to promoting Europe and its tourism offer in a more effective and creative way by enhancing visitor's experience.

Taking the above into account, this call for proposals intends to co-fund projects which put a particular focus on transnational cooperation between tourism and CCIs-related SMEs to develop and promote innovative yet tangible tourism offers. Such tourism offers need to capitalise on the creative potential of CCIs to develop innovative services and products and/or use cultural and creative content to enhance existing or develop new tourism experiences.

 

2. OBJECTIVES –ACTIVITIES – OUTPUTS

2.1. General and specific objectives

This action seeks to enhance the competitiveness of European tourism and promote the image of Europe as a global tourist destination of excellence.

The Commission wishes to support projects which are innovative in their approach, propose sustainable solutions and are based on the close cooperation with and involvement of tourism and CCIs-related SMEs and professionals.

Within the general and specific context explained above, the general objective of the action is to explore the spill-over effects of culture and creativity on tourism products and services in terms of:

  •   revitalising tourism attractions and destinations, and diversifying transnational tourism experiences;

  •   prolonging seasonality of EU destinations and/or enhancing sustainability of tourism offers;

  •   boosting innovation across transnational tourism value chains. The specific objectives of the action:

 

developing innovative solutions or management tools for tourism attractions or destinations through cooperation between tourism and CCI SMEs;

exploring new ways of engaging visitors, with the help of CCIs-related companies or professionals, to revitalise existing tourism products/services and/or create new ones,

creating solid public-private partnerships in the area of tourism and CCIs and ensuring the exchange of knowledge and experience within the partnerships.

2.2.Priorities

The present call for proposals seeks to support projects focusing on existing or new tourism experiences which build on the creative and innovation potential of CCIs to develop services and products.

Proposals must therefore give due importance to the following priorities:

  1. a)  the development of transnational thematic tourism products focusing on innovative solutions, such as but not limited to AR apps, used as interface to explore tourism attractions/destinations and develop new modes of visitor servicing, storytelling and gamification;

  2. b)  the creation of trans-national cooperation networks facilitating capacity building through knowledge and innovation transfer, joint ventures, and the creation of replicable toolkits or handbooks;

  3. c)  the combination of services, products and customised offers, resulting from the cooperation between tourism and CCIs SMEs, within public-private partnerships;

  4. d) the elaboration of new niche offers targeting audiences that transcend national geographic markets.

For the purpose of this call for proposal, "thematic" refers to the tourism product that is conceived and structured around a clearly identifiable theme/context (e.g. local gastronomy, sports or wellness activities, historical figures or events, archaeological sites, etc.).

2.3. Eligible activities
In line with the objectives, thematic context and priorities mentioned above, the present call for

proposals will support the following type of activities:

  •   The mapping of tourism attractions, sites, destinations and tourism related services, that could be linked to the identified theme;

  •   The development of transnational tourism products and services, which have excellent marketing potential, are attractive and interesting for intra-European and/or long haul travellers and travel operators, and can continue after the end of the co-financing period;

  •   The creation of new technological or organisational solutions to attract and engage visitors;

  •   The implementation of medium-to-long-term joint communication/promotion and market

    uptake strategies;

  •   The development of creative promotional activities offering practical information and useful tools for potential tourists;

  •   The implementation of awareness raising and dissemination actions (e.g., the production of audio-visuals, communication activities, publications, websites, participation in fairs, partnerships with international media, etc.).

Applicants are free to propose additional types of activities, if duly justified as fulfilling the objectives and priorities of this call for proposals.

Non-eligible activities:

Development/improvement of infrastructure;

Promoting local tourism offers without developing the transnational dimension of the offer, and/or promoting tourism without focusing on a concrete transnational thematic tourism product.

2.4. General expected results (for outputs or deliverables) The project proposal shall target the following general expected results:

Contribution to competitive and sustainable development, growth (increase in international tourism flows) and employment in the tourism and CCI sectors. Benefits and multiplier effects of synergies between tourism and CCIs-related activities on economy and people’s wellbeing;

Demonstrated contribution to the development of a transnational tourism offer and its diversification. Creation of a "critical mass" of transnational tourism-related products and services, providing ground for varied and attractive tourism offers at European level;

Better market visibility of varied and attractive European transnational tourism offers; developing comprehensive and practical information on the product for potential tourists and enhancing visitors' experience;

Facilitation and consolidation of public-private partnerships and involvement of tourism and CCI–related enterprises in the supply chain of transnational thematic tourism products as well as into regional development and tourism promotional strategies.

The applicant is free to add other, more specific, results relevant to the project proposal. This can amongst others take the form of concrete deliverables in line with the expected results and impacts.

2.5. General indicators
Applicants must ensure that the project outcomes and impacts are presented against all the

following indicators:
Number of countries participating in transnational cooperation project;

Number of tourism and CCI-related SMEs involved in the development of transnational cooperation project;

Increased awareness about and visibility of transnational tourism offers (measurable through a survey of key stakeholders);

Moreover, specific outcome indicators have to be defined for each project proposal, depending on the concrete results/outcomes foreseen for the specific project.

2.6. General requirements
2.6.1. Requirements for the preparation of the proposals A project proposal must:

 Be clear. Applicants are requested to divide the actions into work packages, having clear objectives, a clear description of the work, deliverables, milestones, and expected results measured by performance indicators. To do so, partners must fill in the template "Description of Work", provided together with this call for proposals.

 Be coherent. The proposal needs to clearly elaborate – among others - on the following aspects:

a) Shortcomings and specific needs to be addressed;
b) Identification of the target group(s) and its justification/rationale;

c) Logical link between identified needs, specific objectives, proposed actions and expected results;

d) Complementarity of the project with other actions being carried out (if any) by the applicants.

 

 Be supported by a concise and realistic action plan. The proposal needs to briefly elaborate – among others - on the following aspects:

a) Status quo (SWOT or similar) analysis of the current situation;

b) Analysis of alternative solutions to address the identified needs and their cost- effectiveness;

c) Description of and reasons for the chosen solution as proposed in the project proposal;

d) Estimation of costs and revenues and financial effectiveness, for the chosen solution in the medium term and a business plan after the EU co-financing period ends;

e) The extent to which the outputs are likely to lead to clear and tangible results;

f) Estimated impact of the proposed actions on target groups and on the local economies (indicators, data sources, tools and methodologies to measure short and medium-long term benefits/impact of proposed actions);

g) Any evidence of transformative or spill-over effects, including the extent to which additional value is or may be created by the chosen solution's adoption more widely across Europe.

 Be technically and financially sustainable. The project proposal needs to identify the management structure and explain how this will enable the project to meet its goals. It has to also identify the staff to be involved and the distribution of tasks between partners and staff members.

The proposals must aim at the creation of innovative and sustainable tourism products and services, which have excellent marketing potential, are attractive and interesting for travellers and operators, and can continue after the end of the project period.

The project needs to develop a medium-to-long-term communication/promotion and market uptake strategy. Therefore, the project proposal shall clearly refer to how the action will be further developed after the end of the co-financing period, both technically and financially.

 Generate real measurable results and long-term impacts. The expected results of the project have to be clearly outlined (both short–term and medium-long-terms results) and they must be quantifiable and measurable. The proposal needs to indicate how the results can be measured (i.e. which indicators and sources can be used to measure the results, also after the end of the project).

The work packages need to also contain a final evaluation of results clearly demonstrating whether and how the relevant results (as well as other results specific to the proposal) have been achieved.

As also elaborated upon in the Award Criteria, it will be seen as an asset of added value, positively affecting the assessment of the project proposal, if:

a) the partners' consortium covers more than 6 partners and more than 5 eligible countries;

 

b) the proposal is innovative in its approach, proposes sustainable solutions and highlights close, effective, appropriate and tangible transnational collaboration between tourism and CCI SME`s, besides at least a public authority.
