On Wednesday 24th June 2020 I featured Florian Sora, project manager at EBN on the 1st #DisruptCypruslive Special Edition discussing the upcoming CAST Virtual Hackathon - The Sustainable Tourism Challenge.
EBN is the European Business and Innovation Centre network of around 140 quality-certified EU|BICs (business and innovation centres, incubators, accelerators and other support organisations) and approximately 100 Associate Members that support the development and growth of innovative entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs.
Despite the COVID-19 crisis heavily affecting the tourism sector, businesses can still generate new ideas by using digital solutions for planning purposes and managing the flow of tourists. In this context, CAST partners are joining forces and organising a virtual hackathon seeking innovative proposals addressing the most urgent challenges in the field of tourism:
Challenge 1: Business continuity in tourism sector
Challenge 2: New sustainable business models
The Hackathon is organised by European BIC Network (EBN) in collaboration with Creative Business Network and WestBIC, during the BRIGHT2020.
