moting socio-economic sustainable development through innovative technological actions for Mediterranean tourism heritage and landscapes protection clusters (HELAND)
Start date: Aug 28, 2012, End date: Dec 28, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Mediterranean region is currently being affected by increasing environmental and cultural deterioration. Although it is still one of the foremost tourist areas in the world, the Mediterranean is progressively losing attractiveness. In order to regain competitiveness, Mediterranean countries need to modernise the management of touristic assets, investing in new technologies and innovative policies. HELAND caters to the needs of public and private bodies active in the management of tourist sites with a view to strengthening their capacities in the field of sustainable tourism. Expected Results: • Assessment of the management of selected touristic sites in Cyprus, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Palestine and Spain• Design of a set of “sustainable tourism” indicators• Transfer of advanced technologies (GIS, augmented reality, 3D) for the integrated management of identified touristic sites• Diffusion across the Mediterranean area of the best practices developed by the project
