EuroVelo 8 - Mediterranean Route (2014 project)

The 2014 project related to EuroVelo 8 - Mediterranean Route ran for 18 months from March 2014 to September 2015. It was co-financed by the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) / Grant programme 2013 of the European Commission (DG Enterprise and Industry).

Specific objectives of the project were the enhancement and promotion of sustainable transnational thematic tourism products with the help of cycling tourism, using the existing tourism offers (e.g. well developed sections along the river Po in Italy and in Spain, signed as EuroVelo 8) and brands (e.g. the Pirenexus Route) along the Mediterranean Route, and the creation of sn environment favourable to transnational co-operation among tourism-related stakeholders with a particular emphasis on the SMEs.
