The study, 'Improving information on accessible tourism for disabled people', maps the skills needed to improve the accessibility and safety of tourism services for disabled people and people with special needs. It analyses the availability and the performance of training (both vocational and educational).

The mapping exercise was complemented by a performance check of training provisions and barriers to training and an analysis of 20 case studies on skills and training provision which highlighted their strengths and weaknesses.

The study was presented at a conference held in Brussels in June 2014.
