Abstract:
This article is a reflection on the educational and formation network system in the area of Tourism established between Portugal and members of the Lusophone Commonwealth. The main objective is to effectively demonstrate the advantages of an institutional network for educational or training cooperation to improve relations between individuals and institutions that contribute to training in the Tourism sector. Justification for this analysis is based on four essential dimensions: (1) growing scientific research activity in the area of Tourism; (2) greater involvement of academia and professional association; (3) growing opportunities to share experiences in the area of Tourism via conferences and debate; and (4) the interconnectedness of the agents of the educational and training process in this area.
