The project, funded by Italian Agency Invitalia in the framework of the technical assistance to the Italian Ministry of Economic Development involves an overview of aid schemes for firms aimed at increasing the territorial attractiveness of regions and their structural change through the development of tourism, particularly that linked to the full exploitation of historical, cultural, environmental and social assets. The research involves assesment of successful measures implemented in the 2007-13 OPs from across Europe, six case studies and the detailed examination of the implementation and performance of selected schemes, an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each intervention examined and the lessons learnt and transferrable practices for the 2014-20 Italian programmes.
