Center for Regional and Tourism Research (CRT), Bornholm


Center for Regional and Tourism Research (CRT) is a research-based consultancy. We have many years of experience in carrying out consultancy tasks and development projects as well as participating in research projects. Our main competences are socioeconomic analyses, business development, policy and planning, event evaluation and quantitative research methods (surveys). Our main focus areas are tourism economy, tourist behavior, the experience economy, rural area policy, islands / maritime regions.


CRT is rooted in the research world - a fact which influences on the consultancy services we deliver and the development projects we participate in. The work of Center for Regional and Tourism Research is characterised by a well-grounded starting point, a high level of knowledge and the use of well-established methodology.


We are conscious that knowledge backs arguments and makes decisions more powerful. Furthermore, we are open to new possibilities, new viewpoints and creative approaches. And we think hard questions are the most fun to answer. The centre was established by the Danish Ministry of Research in 1994. Today CRT is an independent institution under the Regional Municipality of Bornholm.
