NORBATOUR | Nordic-Baltic Tourism Research Studies

The project “Nordic-Baltic Tourism Research Studies/ NORBATOUR” connects the competences of four universities - in Estonia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark - to share the information and knowledge on tourism research methods, trends and studies.
Paper article about the project in local Pärnu news paper.
Last year the project was held in Pärnu where the local news picked up the story.

The importance of tourism industry in the regional economy is growing and the need for research and study activities is increasing. In order to evaluate the impact of tourism and the growth of tourism added value, a development of tourism research methods and networking is urgent. Therefore it is crucial to upgrade the knowledge and exchange experience to meet the needs of the society, to follow the global trends and to initiate new ideas. In addition, an inclusion of students is important for the future of the research field and its development.

The joint intensive course “Tourism Research and Methodology” aims to initiate new research approaches, topics and find new qualitative and quantitative methods to measure the impact of tourism in regional and comparative contexts. The course is an integral part of the partner universities’ existing study programmes with an additional international value and knowledge sharing and creation. By developing the joint course, the master students of tourism studies access the modern learning environment and specific international knowledge of tourism research that will complement and improve uplift the quality of their education. The course will be combined with e-learning and an international week of intensive lectures in Campus Helsingborg, Lund University, Sweden. 

The project is supported by the Nordplus Higher Education Programme.
