Relaunching European smart and SustainablE Tourism models Through digitalization and INnovative technoloGies
A crise global do COVID-19 desencadeou grandes mudanças nas sociedades em todo o mundo, perturbando a forma como vivemos e conduzimos os negócios. Em toda a Europa, as medidas e restrições impostas devido à pandemia levaram a mudanças repentinas em muitos paradigmas, abrindo caminho para novos modelos de negócios e de operação no mercado. Essa rutura dramática acelerou algumas tendências socioeconómicas, que eram visíveis antes da crise do COVID-19, como a adoção de tecnologias sofisticadas e soluções de dados para facilitar modelos de operação centrados no ser humano, inteligentes e sustentáveis; a incorporação da sustentabilidade e da mitigação das alterações climáticas como princípios não negociáveis​​de operar e fazer negócios e, por último, mas não menos importante, confiar em soluções inteligentes baseadas em dados para orientar a tomada de decisão com otimização do desempenho comercial e da sustentabilidade. A indústria do turismo é um dos setores económicos globais que sofreu o impacto mais severo da pandemia COVID-19, o que está associado à sua desaceleração económica. Dados da Organização Mundial do Turismo das Nações Unidas (UNWTO) confirmam que a crise atual é responsável por uma queda global nas receitas de exportação de 750-900 biliões de euros e uma perda de empregos diretos estimada entre 100 e 200 milhões. Com a queda dos lucros e a incerteza da retoma de uma estabilidade nos mercados, está em risco a recuperação para breve das pequenas e médias empresas (PMEs) que, segundo a UNWTO, são responsáveis por 80% do turismo global. Com a perda de receitas e, consequentemente, a fuga de talentos para outros setores económicos, as PMEs do turismo têm de levar a cabo a retoma com recursos limitados. Através da conceção de uma solução tecnológica dinâmica (plataforma) para transferência de conhecimento e troca de experiências disponibilizada a uma rede de clusters de PME do turismo em seis países, este projeto irá demonstrar como a digitalização pode aceler...

BRU-HORIZON 2020: Raising the International Profile and Scalability of BRU’s Research Activities
This project, supported by Portugal 2020 funds, aims to support BRU-Iscte institutional capacities in submitting applications to European competitive funding, namely within the Horizon 2020 programme. With this support, BRU-Iscte has drafted a strategic plan for 2019-2022 with regards to the submission of applications to competitive European funding schemes in areas of key interest for BRU research activities.

Funerary practices in Alentejo's Recent Prehistory and socio-economic proceeds of heritage rescue projects
Based on a series of rescue archaeology projects carried out in the Alentejo region to mitigate the archaeological impact of a number of public works, an integral project is proposed. The project aims to study the Recent Prehistory funerary practices in the low Alentejo region (Beja district) and build models to the diffusion of knowledge produced over non accessible (or totally dismantled) archaeological heritage, that has been establishing and empirical revolution in the Beja district, in the context of impact assessment projects developed by Redes Electricas Nacionais (REN) and Empresa de Desenvolvimento de Infraestruturas de Alqueva (EDIA). So, using a set of eight archaeological sites of particular scientific relevance, excavated in the context of impact assessment, we intent to address and understand death management practices in their diverse dimensions in the Guadiana basin in low Alentejo, from Late Neolithic to the Bronze Age and the contrasts and articulations established with the funerary solutions known in peripheral areas of Southwest Iberia. Resulting from discoveries and interventions occurred in the context of rescue Archaeology, the majority of the sites was partially or totally destroyed or became inaccessible after the mitigation processes. The project’s implementation strategy will consider a general parallel development of the different dimensions, in order to favor their interactions, but with the necessary adjustments related to specific goals and precedent needs. Archaeological research will address the study of funerary architectures, ritual practices concerning votive deposits, organization of funerary space in articulation with the anthropological approach to human osteology. Geophysical survey will be done in elected sites, for a more global characterization at a site´s scale and archaeometric studies (namely absolute chronology) will be carried out. At the same time, theoretical work and models definition for public access to the produc...

The overall rural tourism experience and sustainable local community development
Rural tourism should ideally be located in rural areas; functionally rural (based on the rural world’s special features, such as open space, natural resources and traditional practices); rural in scale (small scale) and traditional in character, organically and slowly growing and controlled by local people. The present research project seeks to analyse, in a holistic and multi-disciplinary manner, the rural tourism experience lived in some Portuguese areas that are shaped by distinct geographical, cultural, social, political and economic conditions. This experience will be analysed, considering tourists, the community and the tourism destination context. Additionally, results will be confronted to identify conflicts of interest and/ or gaps of perception, as well as gaps between the real and potential rural tourism experience, and ways of eventually overcoming these conflicts and gaps in an attempt to further sustainable destination development.  For the rural destinations analysed, more specific recommendations for destination development will be advanced and eventually, based on common problem-fields identified, more general proposals for improved destination planning and marketing of rural areas in Portugal suggested, thereby also making a contribution in the field of “action research”.
