   Within the framework of the implementation of the European project CI-NOVATEC, the Region of Western Greece, as the Lead Partner, has chosen the region of Kalavryta for the pilot implementation of this project. The project, adopting an innovative methodology, aims to satisfy the collection of data based on visitor experiences that will be used to facilitate business and political decisions in order to create an added value for the local tourism ecosystem.

   The purpose of the project and the role of the Region of Western Greece is to record and evaluate the experiences of the visitors in relation to the simple or complex services that they receive at their destination. The purpose and role of the members of the regional networks is to mobilize the tourists in order to participate for achieving the maximum response of completing the questionnaires.
