“Tourism Impact Model for Blue Economy”

TIM4BE: Tourism Impact Model for Blue Economy

The project TIM4BE tackles the challenge of effective and sustainable management of tourism by providing tourism destinations with the tool (Tourism Impact Model – TIM) to create an objective picture of the impact of tourism using real data, thus paving the way for data driven strategic and sustainable planning in tourism.


TIM4BE’s expectations from the acceleration programme:

  • Following the COVID 19 pandemic impact on the tourist sector and the recent adherence of the top coastal tourist destinations in Spain to the Glasgow Declaration, we find ourselves at the right time to implement TIM4BE to empower sustainability and circularity in these destinations.
  • The Digicirc acceleration programme is a unique opportunity to enable us to bring TIM closer to the market and to implement pilot projects to demonstrate the tool's value to raise awareness and allow destinations to make informed decisions based on real data.



For more than 30 years, Arctur (IT sector, Slovenia) has been pioneering by merging research, science, art and business. The main pillars of our work are Innovations, R&D projects, High Performance Computing & Data Centre. We are initiators of the Tourism 4.0 Initiative and developers of TIM.
