Throughout the whole project, a research activity and support actions will be put into operation in order to understand the current situation and the potentialities of the innovations planned thanks to the improvement of the existing services carried out in bathing establishments, constantly monitoring their relevance with the objectives of both EU Framework Programme and ERNEST project.

Gruppo CSA has been charged with organizing the scientific coordination of partners and tourist resorts involved in the project.

RESULTS

ExELLENCE has started a modernization path of the bathing accomodation facilities offering them an opportunity to perform quality services where beach and sea agree with eco-sustainable and accessibile tourism.

The project joins environmental and social sustainabilities together, by privileging the use of eco-compatible materials, alternative energy sources and the creation of an environment sustaining the sharing of structures and spaces, without discriminating people and needs.
