INVENTIVE MOUNTAIN TOURISM CLUSTER

The "Montagne Inventive" tourism cluster, accredited by the Institut Français du Tourisme, is a resource center for mountain players and regions. It brings together players from the academics and research sectors, tourism professionals and elected representatives to encourage new strategic projects, contribute to innovation in the tourism sector and thus enhance the appeal of mountain regions. The tourism cluster takes concrete action by mobilizing trans-disciplinary teams working in project mode. Its method is based on university research (scientific literature reviews, international monitoring and benchmarking) and on qualitative field studies, which it pilots with the support of the USMB Survey Unit.

These actions fall into four main categories:

  • INNOVATE: support tourism players in their innovative product and process projects to enhance the region's appeal.
  • TRAIN: create academics products for and with professionals by combining the knowledge, skills and shared experience of professionals, students and teacher-researchers from all disciplines.
  • FEDERATE: the region's professional and institutional players around the co-construction of projects.
  • INTERNATIONALIZE: in particular, by helping territories to develop their Asian clientele and by promoting cross-cultural academics and research initiatives with Switzerland and Italy.
