Tourism Research Centre Tourism Research Centre

The Tourism Research Centre is an inter-disciplinary network of academics, researchers and research students who have a particular interest in any aspects of tourism studies. The Centre was launched in October 2016 and through a variety of its activities, and in particular through this webpage, seminars and workshop series, the Tourism Research Centre aims to:

  • stimulate debate
  • inspire new collaborative and individual research, consultancy and knowledge transfer projects, publications and funding bids among its members
  • attract PhD study level students.

The multi-faceted nature of tourism as an academic field of studies is matched by the members' own varied backgrounds and research interests. Our areas of expertise include tourism policy, the development and management of tourist destinations (including smart destinations), heritage; wellness tourism; island tourism; sustainability issues; trails; place branding; niche tourism (e.g. dark tourism) and economic development. The Tourism Research Centre is situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site within a vibrant and continuously evolving tourism destination and makes good use of this inspiring location.
