Centers of excellence in sustainable tourism to boost economic development and enhance university-business cooperation in Southern Asia (CESTour)

Centers of excellence in sustainable tourism to boost economic development and enhance university-business cooperation in Southern Asia” (acronym: CESTour) as a European- Asian collaboration initiative in the Capacity Building for Higher Education (Erasmus+ CBHE) program aiming to evolve entrepreneurial mindsets for the betterment of the labor market and society alike. The project especially focuses on the development and implementation of centers of excellence for sustainable tourism to enhance the knowledge about the concept and create an impact on the future developments in the tourism industry.
