Measurement By identifying and testing a framework of sustainability and resilience indicators and a Decision Support System for measuring and monitoring cultural tourism and its impacts;
By testing and presenting innovative and creative tools for stakeholder engagement, particularly art-based methods, a serious game and service design;
By recognizing state-of-the-art and innovative cultural tourism interventions through existing case studies and by trialling specific interventions within six community-led Living Labs.
