The InCommon project boosts a joint effort by partners of the eligible area, lead by the Chamber of GREVENA, that tries to promote traditional products and breathe behaviors and attitudes that characterize the history of each area. By promoting a basket of goods in each territory and also promoting traditional recipes, InCommon project wants to mobilize local stakeholders. Adopting a quality logo that will be awarded only to firms and economic actors that fulfill quality-based criteria, the InCommon project will disseminate this as the quality of goods and services. These firms will be obliged to use traditional products, (for example greek salad with kalathaki cheese in Grevena) and also will agree to use traditional recipes in their cooking. The ambition of this effort is to create quality areas that enhance traditional products in a strategic way. This –by its turn- will be the pole of attraction of tourists and travelers. Expected Results: The projects results are immediate and indirect. Both are long lasting with a general positive impact in the participating areas. These results are:- the awareness of the local stakeholders,- the step-by-step introduction to a quality policy to every service and product,- the involvement of traditional firms (restaurants, cafes, bistots, greengrocer stores) and upgrade of their role to economic circulation.- the increase of the annually touristic flow, - the gradually reduction of the seasonality of the touristic flow, - the environmental friendly development of the participating areas in terms of exploitation of current natural rescource avoiding the adaptation of other ways of touristic attraction, - the gradually reduction of the unemployment in the participating areas and the abidance of human resources and especially higher educated ones,- the joint implementation between a Member State and an IPA country and the know-how transfer,- the reduction of people that choose to move away from their homeland, - the change of way of behaving towards travelers and tourists,- the adaption of a strategic way of thinking regarding the touristic development,- the annually increase in local GDP,- long lasting impact in areas development.
