The School of Business at Waterford Institute of Technology has been engaged by Fáilte Ireland to develop and implement an active learning environment for tourism enterprises across a seven-county region stretching from Wexford to Kerry. The aim of the project is to assist the small tourism and hospitality enterprise owner in developing his/her business through providing access to a range of training and development supports at a flexible and local level. The mergo project is concerned with four aspects of knowledge transfer: local networks, regional events, research and web communications resources. Tourism providers will, through this project, be able to co-operate on issues such as county-based research and marketing. Up to 675 enterprises are set to benefit from the programme by the end of 2008.
