The 2nd IKAT Tourism Call for SMEs in Europe Offers Financial Support for Coastal and Maritime Services

The 2nd Eurocluster IKAT call for SMEs engaged in coastal and maritime tourism is now open, welcoming applications until Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at 16:00 Canary Islands time.

The initiative encourages robust participation from Canarian enterprises. Targeting SMEs involved in nautical and coastal tourism, the call aims to fund services for these businesses through pre-identified providers (including entities from the Canary Islands). This proactive involvement is crucial in identifying and supporting SMEs that many of you are likely to collaborate with. While the application process is straightforward, support is available to assist in English submissions, given the European project context.

Objectives of the 2nd Call The IKAT services targeting SMEs in the coastal and maritime tourism sector aim to provide solutions that address and are in alignment with the priorities of the European Strategy for More Growth and Jobs in Coastal and Maritime Tourism, as well as to recover pre-pandemic Gross Domestic Product (GDP), contributing to re-establishing broken value chains, collaboration, and increasing the resilience of tourism SMEs.

IKAT Eurocluster Supplier Catalog The IKAT EUROCLUSTER establishes a supplier catalog by type of service. This catalogue is developed based on the expertise and quality of the suppliers demonstrated by testimonials, previous work funded through European projects or previous work with at least one of the IKAT partners, and the location of these suppliers in the IKAT countries and EU-13 countries.

IKAT’s primary goal aligns with the European Commission’s updated tourism strategy post-pandemic, emphasising the Mediterranean’s tourism, maritime, and coastal sectors. Establishing an initial consortium, IKAT emphasises a democratic, agile, and flexible approach for short- and medium-term actions supporting the tourism ecosystem.

The IKAT Tourism Call for SMEs in Europe targets entities within the maritime and coastal tourism ecosystem. Key sub-sectors include ports, marinas, recreational and sport boat services, vessel manufacturing and sales, charter and maritime excursions, coastal tourism, water sports, and related services.
