The TIC-A Tourism Research Platform is established within the Travel Industry Club Austria. Cooperation of the member institutes and their interaction is the basis for a common research agenda.
The extent of networking along the innovation process, from basic research to applied R&D, is its primary objective. In this context, the platform is growing to include more industry stakeholders.
The TIC-A also aims to obtain sustainable financing for research and development projects. Besides the more efficient use of existing financial sources, the crowdfunding initiatives and research of the Travel Industry Club Austria are undertaken to meet this objective.
