Tourism Observatory (O-Tur), being integrated in the research activity of the Institute for Economic Research, as well as involving Master of International Tourism of Università della Svizzera italiana, Switzerland, can therefore benefit from the relevant cooperation and diverse competences, in particular for what concerns observation of economic dynamics.

The main objective of O-Tur is to increase and disseminate knowledge on the tourism industry of the Canton, by means of systematic observation and analysis of tourism demand and local supply at the destinations in Ticino with application of qualitative and quantitative methods.

Furthermore, O-Tur seeks to implement the monitoring system of tourism which would be of considerable support for strategic decision-making processes of the tourism stakeholders, cantonal administration and tour operators.
