Stakeholder’s point of view: interview with Branislav Kršák

“Clusters Meet Culture“ from the point of view of Mr. Branislav Kršák, Phd., company e-volution, s.r.o. Košice.

You have attended training of trainers within the CMC project in Vicenza. To what extent you can use the lessons learned for the needs of your own region?

CMC trainings were focused on several areas, so I will focus mainly on those professionally concerned me the most. Training started with lecture on Public-private partnership. This topic is closely related to the upcoming programming period of the Structural Funds, so the lessons learned can be fully used in the restoration of cultural monuments and brown-fields for tourism purposes, as well as in building for tourism very necessary new bike routes. Another for me very interesting training conducted Martha Maria Friel, who identified a number of interesting examples of creative industries and cultural tourism.

With implementation of the project Košice – European Capital of Culture 2013, in the city of Košice they began to resonate the above topics. Many of the training examples are feasible for us.

The knowledge gained from lecture marketing of destinations can be applied to the entire Košice Self-governing Region. I was interested in particular examples of applications of advanced technologies in tourism, which are currently only partially represented in county marketing.
