Among these, there are lacks communication related to various kind of information, such as announcements of delays, transports information and lack of accessible touristic services. They confirmed the results emerged through the need analysis carried out by the consortium.
Besides that, participants were interested in the results of the project, especially in the FEELIT online community developed by CEIPES. You can take a look at the following link and start to create your account to keep in touch with travel agents and tourists.
