1. BACKGROUND INFORMATION

1.1 Beneficiary Country: Albania

1.2 Contractor: EuroPartners Development

1.3 Current state of affairs in the sector:

Under the IPA Cross Border Programme Greece - Albania 2007-2013 EuroPartners Development in cooperation with Regional Council of Korca and the Chamber of Commerce of Grevena are currently running a project titled: “Fostering Cooperation and mobilization composing economic clusters – InCommon”

The InCommon project led by the Chamber of GREVENA, is trying to promote traditional products and breathe behaviours and attitudes that characterize the history of each area. By promoting a basket of goods in each territory and also promoting traditional recipes InCommon project wants to mobilize local stakeholders. Adopting a “quality logo” that will be awarded only to firms and economic actors that fulfil quality-based criteria, the InCommon project will disseminate this as the quality of goods and services. These firms will be encouraged and to certain degree obliged to use traditional products and also will be agreed to use traditional recipes in their cooking. The ambition of this effort is to create “quality areas” that enhance traditional products in a strategic way. This by its turn will be the pole of attraction of tourists and travellers. Any one that will visit the participating areas will know before –by Internet, road maps – Face book and YouTube- the places that should visit and the firms that this quality logo is awarded.

This project has the ambition to create a strong synergy with long lasting results in the border area. It also tries to change the way of behaviour of local stakeholders and will also give them the chance to promote their products and their services. The strategic impact of this project is to change the behaviour towards a tourist or a traveller that visits a place. It will give them the appropriate guidance and assistance, it will help them in order be aware of every complaining process and also it will offer the chance to local stakeholder to create a “quality zone” that attracts even more people that does today.

The project has started the implementation and part of it is the establishment and maintenance of the website. As the website will be a window of the project activities it will display them in a very timely and professional way. Therefore a website designer along the project lifetime is required. It is important to be emphasised that the designer will construct a very dynamic website and in a very interactive way.

The website will be used as a “speaking board” for any producers, visitor, citizens and the entire target groups. It will also serve as a pool for input of all the project outputs (survey, studies, newsletter; leaflet; In Common Panorama, recipe festival, conferences dissemination strategy etc…) that will require to certain extend the input and the feedback of all the project actors as well as announcements for each activity.
