Background & policy context: 

An entire work package of the SEEMORE project is dedicated to the transfer of knowledge, which takes place at different levels and among different stakeholders all along the project life cycle. At national level, two National Transfer Seminars are organised by each of the eight SEEMORE regions in their respective countries. The National Transfer Seminars gather representatives of tourist destinations that are not participating in the SEEMORE project, but share the same (or similar) challenges of the SEEMORE regions in terms of tourists’ mobility management. The aim of the National Transfer Seminars is to disseminate the innovative approach to tourists’ mobility management developed within the SEEMORE project, thus facilitating and encouraging the transfer of best practices in this field. In order to facilitate discussion, a National Reader on tourism and sustainable mobility is prepared by each SEEMORE region before its National Transfer Seminar and distributed at the event. According to a common approach, the National Readers first briefly present the SEEMORE project, then give an overview of the developments on tourism and sustainable mobility in the relevant country and finally list the innovative actions implemented within the SEEMORE project that are going to be presented at the related seminar.
