The Second Meeting of the Cubitus-Team in Suceava (Romania)

The second meeting of the Cubitus project was held in Suceava on 24-28 May 2014 under the aegis of FHM and the organizers and host from Romania. 

The project participants from Wales, Austria, Estonia, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, Romania, and Germany met at Universitatea Stefan cel Mare to discuss the initial results of the work on the Senior Tourism Handbook and CUBITUS ISO/IEC Certification Standards as well as to vote on the project’s coming stages.

The Handbook on Senior Tourism aims to provide an overview of the target group’s reasons for traveling, of various European senior tourism markets as well as describing best practices, while the European Competence Matrix for CUBITUS would be further developed in order to define the general framework of the upcoming coaching session.

Special emphasis was placed on the preparation of certified UBCM coaching session which will take place in Porto from 13-18 October 2014.

Universitatea Stefan cel Mare is also a FHM partner in other Erasmus projects such as “Selfsmart-Course” which recently took place in conjunction with an excursion of international students.

In addition to a full program of work which produced important results, the successful meeting of experts from business and tourism was complemented by cultural insights into the Bukovina, a region with a wide variety of touristic highlights.

One of the most important goals of the project, which is funded by the European Commission for Education in the framework of  the Erasmus programme’s “Lifelong Learning Programme Erasmus Action” is the development of a “Curriculum for Sustainable  Universtiy/Business Cooperation in the Tourism Sector.” For this purpose, a broad pool of stakeholders, among others, will be established with more than 300 international organizations from business, politics and public administration.
