Centre for Advanced Studies in Tourism - CAST

The Centre of Advanced Studies in Tourism (CAST) was established in February 2014 at the Rimini Campus of Bologna University. Its goal is to coordinate and strengthen research, dissemination and lifelong learning in the field of tourism.

Its multidisciplinary nature is the true strength of the Centre because it combines various sector-based approaches and research methodologies, which are essential for understanding the tourism phenomenon. CAST aims to coordinate and strengthen research activities in various disciplinary areas, as well as disseminate and propagate the most innovative tools in tourism study and training.
