Slovenia wins UNWTO award for innovation in the European Year of Creativity and Innovation

The Bank of Tourism Potentials in Slovenia (BTPS) is to receive an award from the World Tourism Organisation for special and innovative achievements in the field of tourism. The BTPS has also been ranked as an example of good practice in the European Year of Creativity and Innovation.

The World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) introduced the Ulysses award seven years ago in order to draw attention to special and innovative achievements in tourism every year. This year one of the three special jury awards in the public institutions category will go to the Slovenian Tourist Board (STB) for the Bank of Tourism Potentials in Slovenia (BTPS), a project which is implemented as a partnership by Turistica (the Faculty of Tourism Studies at the University of Primorska) and the Tourism Directorate at the Ministry of the Economy.

The BTPS was founded in December 2006 at the proposal of Turistica. The leader of the project is Dejan Križaj, a lecturer and researcher at Turistica. The BTPS has also been supported by the Tourism Directorate at the Ministry of the Economy and the STB. The project is aimed at increasing the innovative potential of Slovenian tourism. 1The main function of the BTPS is to promote the controlled flow of information on promising ideas and opportunities in order to bring together the right people and the right resources to realise new ideas and opportunities in Slovenian tourism.

And the Ulysses award is not the only thing the BTPS has won: recognition for the project has also come from the European Union, which will officially present the Bank of Tourism Potentials in Slovenia in the European Year of Creativity and Innovation and classify it as an example of good practice. The European Commission has selected 80 of the 200 projects submitted for a special category of quality projects whose aims coincide with the aims of this year’s European Year of Creativity and Innovation.
