NETOUR Nature-­‐based Tourism in Russia A situational analysis Acknowledgements This report would not have been possible without the EACEA TEMPUS grant that funded the NETOUR consortium to work on tourism and higher education in Russia. The European Union made it possible for all European and Russian contributors to meet each other in the past three years and to establish good work and collegial relations. The consortium was composed of colleagues from 16 EU and Russian institutions. From Europe: the University of Extremadura, University of Cartagena, University of Jaén (Spain), SKEMA Business School and Institut Français du Tourisme (France), Manchester Metropolitan University (UK), Dublin Institute of Technology (Ireland), and University of Lapland (Finland). From Russia: the Russian State University of Tourism and Services, St. Petersburg Interregional Resource Center, St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, St Petersburg State University of Service and Economics, Volga State University of Technology, Chavash Varmane Natural Park, Sochi State University, and Kuban State University of Physical Education, Sport and Tourism. As a team, we have all been dedicated to understanding tourism in Russia and to working, in a modest way, towards fostering positive sustainable change in Russian universities involved in teaching and research in the area of tourism management. We are very grateful to this team who has worked hard for the project and its various outputs, including this book. All consortium members, even those whose names do not appear on the list of contributors in the next pages, have significantly helped us. We would like to thank, in particular, the colleagues who have assisted us in identifying and collecting information related to Russian tourism.
