Description: The CEnTOUR project (Circular Economy in Tourism) implements a capacity building and support scheme for SMEs of the tourism sector in 5 European and Cosme countries (Italy, Spain, North Macedonia, Moldova, Greece) that will lead enterprises to reach different levels of circular economy innovations within a transition system perspective, therefore toward solutions that are partly at SMEs level, but also try to go beyond the single SMEs and work at the system (tourism, regional, …) level, especially through reverse supply chain and symbiosis. This approach will be also linked to a place-based approach, fundamental in the tourism industry, that will help SMEs to develop marketing and promotional capabilities levereging on the sustainability factor. All the geographical areas selected for implementation have actual tourism capacity (as well defined destinations) and potentialities for improvement/development.
