At the end of November 2012 the team of MYCCI Bulgaria took part in the first meeting of the consortium partners under the Back to Nature project, supported by Leonardo da Vinci, Transfer of Innovations Sectoral Programme. The meeting was organized and hosted by the Giresun Chamber of Commerce and Industry in their capacity of the Applicant organisation. The participating partners presented their organisations, discussed the operational and financial aspects of the project and identified the ongoing activities. The partners also exchanged their views on the forthcoming training need analysis in rural tourism and agreed to develop three types of questionnaires for the target groups of VET trainers/tutors, managers of travel agencies and NGOs involved in tourism. The research analysis should be finalized by the end of March 2013 and all partners will summarise the findings and conclusions in separate country reports.
