MTI and Lapland’s Tourism Industry to Strengthen Co-operation

The following are examples of the project’s actions to promote foresight knowledge at the MTI:
Teachers at the MTI are invited to participate in tourism foresight sparring
The project gives expert consultation to teachers to realize student workshops such as the

Integration Ensures the Continuity of Tourism Foresight at the MTI
The aim of these actions is to enhance the tourism foresight knowledge and know-how of the MTI’s staff and students as well as to create models to continue working on tourism foresight after the project. The integration work is always planned and carried out with the intention to produce material to the Tourism Foresight Database or to support other project activities.
