Smart tourism as a guiding thread for the success of Croatian tourism

first_imgThe participants pointed out that the public is not sufficiently aware of the importance of cooperation and that they believe that the responsibility for the development of smart community management is primarily the responsibility of tourist boards, and then other stakeholders.  The panel discussion brought together about two hundred participants, mostly key representatives of leading tourism companies, institutions and potential SMART destinations, who worked together to answer the question. “What will tourism be like in Croatia after the crown?”.  I am glad to see today that Croatian tourism is on a great track to become “smart”, but we are also convinced that Croatia needs to work further on a legislative framework that will support the goals of various strategic frameworks that are to some extent good. developed. It is also necessary to further encourage interdisciplinary cooperation and develop participatory platforms that include a wide range of levels of management and stakeholders in tourism management and strategic development thinking. ” pointed out the director of the tourism sector from the partner company in the organization of this event, Jadranka Gojtanić “Tourism in Croatia is expecting key years of development and I believe that they will be marked by activities related to smart tourism and the SMARTMED project in which Croatia, through the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, has a leading role among nine Mediterranean countries.. “, said the state secretary at the ministry of tourism and sports Tonči Glavina he added: “Today’s four panel discussions of domestic experts in tourism on the topics of smart tourism, ie sustainability, cooperation and participation, human capital and business environment, and technology and IT reminded us of some great “smart” projects that have been implemented in Croatia for a long time. encourage reflection on innovative tourism models and the potential of the pilot project in Croatia and the possibilities of international cooperation with Mediterranean countries. I am glad that projects such as the digitalization of Croatian tourism, the award-winning eVisitor check-in and check-out system, the croatia.hr and entercroatia portals, which aim to introduce visitors to current events in our country, the Safe Tourist Season project and many others by the Ministry of Tourism and sports launched independently or in collaboration with partners and the community and others that we strongly support, recognized and members of this initiative and highlighted as excellent examples of sustainability in the research conducted.” In the panel Human Capital and Business Environment, the emphasis is placed on the necessity of encouraging and developing creative entrepreneurship, encouraging year-round employment and continuous development of competencies of actors in tourism in accordance with market changes. Through the conversation of the participants, it was pointed out that the Croatian islands, with an emphasis on Krk and Cres, turned to sustainability and previously prescribed strategies at the level of Croatia and Europe, presented projects by which Dubrovnik fights against over- tourism,  storytelling as a key element of sustainability and heritage preservation in Croatia and how currently accessibility in tourism, social and inclusive tourism is a marginally addressed topic that has much room for development. As a basic key to sustainable tourism, the emphasis is on cooperation, which was also the topic of the second panel of this event.   The panel dedicated to cooperation and participation highlighted the necessary greater connection between the field and decision makers, as exemplified by the Island Movement, which used technology to connect islands and emphasized the importance of the local community in tourism management. The Municipality of Svetvinčenat is an excellent example of this. The direction in which Croatia is going is answered in four panels in which it was pointed out that Croatia is at the forefront of sustainability and that for the development of smart tourism it is necessary to encourage the private sector and promote the cooperation of the population through the cooperation of the four pillars of smart tourism.  Smart tourism should primarily foster an interdisciplinary, intersectoral and participatory approach to governance and develop destinations that are inclusive and resilient, whose local communities live better lives and promote their heritage, and where tourists and visitors preserve the environment together with the population.  Through the panel discussion, the goal was to identify key areas in which it is necessary to invest for the development of smart tourism in Croatia. The discussion with panelists and the audience showed that in Croatia there is great interest in new models of tourism development and integration of new technologies in the form of innovative products, destination resilience, inclusive tourism, etc. and the direction of further tourism development from the point of view of key Croatian tourism stakeholders. Croatian tourism is at the forefront of sustainability, and the emphasis must be on strategic consideration of development and interdisciplinary cooperation of stakeholders in tourism was one of the conclusions of the all-day online panel discussion “Challenges and opportunities for smart tourism development in Croatia” organized by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports. consulting Apsolon. The first panel on sustainability in tourism pointed out that sustainability is a complex topic that, in addition to the first environmental protection, contains a much wider range of topics that need to more clearly define guidelines, further educate local tourism actors on what to do and introduce technologies to ultimately the development of sustainability would encourage the private sector and stronger cooperation of the population. Panelists at the Technology and IT Panel led a discussion on the benefits of technologies for tourism, the role of strategies in fostering innovation while emphasizing that strategies come in a relatively short period of time.last_img read more

Vaccine developed against Ebola

first_img Tweet Share Around 1,200 people have died of Ebola virus infection since 1976Scientists have developed a vaccine that protects mice against a deadly form of the Ebola virus. First identified in 1976, Ebola kills more than 90% of the people it infects.The researchers say that this is the first Ebola vaccine to remain viable long-term and can therefore be successfully stockpiled.The results are reported in the journal Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences. Ebola is transmitted via bodily fluids, and can become airborn. Sufferers experience nausea, vomiting, internal bleeding and organ failure before they die.Although few people contract Ebola each year, its effects are so swift and devastating that it is often feared that it could be used against humans in an act of terroism. All previously developed vaccines have relied on injecting intact, but crippled, viral particles into the body.Long-term storage tends to damage the virus, paralysing the vaccine’s effectiveness. The new vaccine contains a synthetic viral protein, which prompts the immune system to better recognise the Ebola virus, and is much more stable when stored long-term. The vaccine protects 80% of the mice injected with the deadly strain, and survives being “dried down and frozen,” said biotechnologist Charles Arntzen from Arizona State University who was involved in its development. He said the next step is to try the vaccine on a strain of Ebola that is closer to the one that infects humans.

USC appoints politician-in-residence

first_imgFormer California Sen. Kevin Murray is now serving as USC’s first politician-in-residence in hopes of providing better resources to students and faculty.Political wisdom · Former Sen. Kevin Murray has worked with transportation and environmental committees while in the legislature. – Photo courtesy of Kevin Murray Murray will be working with the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics and the USC College of Letters, Arts & Sciences.Murray was appointed only a few of weeks ago, said Ann Crigler, interim director of the Unruh Institute.“He has already participated in two events for the Unruh Institute and we are looking forward to working with him again,” Crigler said.Murray attended CSU Northridge as an undergraduate student and obtained his master’s degree in business administration at Loyola Marymount University before pursuing a career in law.With a Juris Doctorate in law and emphasis on environment, Murray has a wealth of information to provide for USC students, said Michael Quick, executive vice dean of USC College Academic Affairs.“We knew of Sen. Murray because he had taught in the School of Policy, Planning, and Development and he had helped out the Unruh Institute by meeting with some students who had traveled up to Sacramento to visit state agencies,” Quick said.His previous experiences include representing California Legislature in the 47th Assembly District and two four-year terms in the California State Senate. He retired in 2006 because of term limits.Having been in the political scene for years, Murray has experience on transportation, appropriation and environmental committees. He was responsible for drafting multiple propositions that benefitted youth and recreational systems throughout the state.His duties as politician-in-residence will include a wide array of work, mostly in lectures, panel discussions and interactions with students.“I hope to work as much as possible and hope to work with anybody interested in public policy,” Murray said.Murray said he was looking forward to working with students at USC.“My goal is to interact and have a positive influence on as many students as possible [and] impart some knowledge that I may have on how it works outside of the theory and in real life,” Murray said.One of his most notable involvements will be with the “Students Talk Back” lunches co-hosted by Unruh and the Daily Trojan. Murray is expected to be a moderator in the upcoming “Students Talk Back” panel on Oct. 26, which will discuss the final week of the state gubernatorial race.“For the spring semester, he is considering offering a course on how a bill becomes a law by having a class develop a real bill and moving it through the legislative process,” Quick said.Dayna Leland, a freshman majoring in political science, said she would be interested in learning from Murray.“I think it’s a great opportunity for all students, not just political science majors, but for the whole of USC community, to have first-hand experience with a state senator. It will definitely help in understanding of the government and the way it functions,” she said.With no precedent for this position, it is uncertain how long Murray will stay as politician-in-residence, Crigler said.Correction: 10/20/10 – A previous version of this story ran with an incorrect headline.  This entry has been corrected to reflect the change.last_img read more
