Today at the Connemara Coast Hotel in Na Forbacha in the Galway Gaeltacht, Director of Regional Development, Community and Language Planning of Údarás na Gaeltachta, Rónán Mac Con Iomaire, will launch the European tourism project ST3ER, a project aimed at supporting tourism businesses, to help them instigate innovative digital projects and support them in being more resilient and sustainable.

Six parties from five countries are involved in the project (Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Denmark and Slovenia). Údarás na Gaeltachta is the lead organisation, responsible for coordinating the project. The WestBIC organization based in Galway is also involved and is responsible for the accelerator and investment aspects of the project.

This is a 3-year project, funded by the European Union, to develop the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises in the tourism sector.

Rónán Mac Con Iomaire stated:

“It is very important that small and medium-sized tourism businesses are supported in their development, in order to help them face the challenges that lie ahead. If the changes needed in the tourism industry are to happen, new creative skills need to be developed in these companies.”

The project has a budget of €3.2 million and will provide direct funding of €1.96m to businesses. For further information go to ag
