 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The Irish Academy of Hospitality and Tourism (IAHT), at the IT, Tralee, is a dedicated facility which houses an experienced applied research community at post doctorate and postgraduate level whose research agenda is informed directly by its steering committee of key industry CEOs and their representative bodies and by international academics who also mentor and support the Academy. The researchers at the IAHT engage in applied research of direct relevance to the tourism and hospitality sectors in order to unlock the growth potential of rural regions and to further enhance Ireland as a high-quality and competitive world class tourism destination.

The IAHT researchers have particular interest in community tourism development and rural development and provide on-going support to a number of community networks and groups. We are also interested in knowledge and learning in collaborative groups and have extensive experience in action research and action learning. The IAHT also provides continuous professional development programmes of specific practical application to the industry it serves e.g. the IAHT is the sole provider of the National Trainee Hotel Manager Programme delivered through an innovative blended learning approach, incorporating traditional classroom learning with work-based learning and on-line classes and tutorials.

The IAHT recently completed a project on food tourism in the Southwest of Ireland. The primary objective of this research project was to develop a practical manual to capture best practice indicators aimed at supporting the development of food tourism networks and optimise their performance [available at www.iaht.eu]. The IAHT researchers collaborated with a number of networks in order to complete this project. The manual disseminates best practice in managing food tourism networks to the wider hospitality and tourism sector. Currently we are involved in several projects exploring the growth potential of rural areas through community-based tourism development.

In 2013 the IAHT was awarded EU-FP7 funding as a partner responsible for network support in the recent successful IT, Tralee EU-FP7 project ‘Network for the Transfer of knowledge on traditional foods to SMEs’ under the [KBBE 2013.2.2-02] call theme. The TRADEIT project is a multidisciplinary, multi-sectorial collaborative project supporting a network of traditional food SMEs and food researchers to increase the competitiveness and inter-regional advantage of traditional food producing SMEs (the total project award is €4m). Other research projects on-going at the IAHT focus on festivals and events, world heritage and adventure tourism.
