In addition to the planned future activities, the results of the first intellectual output were presented at the meeting.

An analysis of the needs of the European camping sector was conducted, in which, among other things, 203 existing graduate study programs were analyzed , and among which only 7% of the programs have some connection with the camping industry. An extensive study of the framework of key companies and organizations in the field of camping tourism in Europe and their impact on the development of sustainable camping management was also conducted.
