Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This project, led by Fraser Associates, was commissioned by One North East to support the inception phase of the Interreg IIIC project TouriSME - 'Tourism and SMEs for Sustainable and Balanced Development'. The study was being undertaken on behalf of a partnership of business development organisations in four regions: North East England, Valencia, Limburg and Sachsen Anhalt. Two comparative studies were undertaken, focused on: * Business support services, and * Exports/internationalisation of regional businesses Each study aimed to benchmark relevant support services in each region, to allow relative strengths and weakenesses to be identified and highlight potential opportunities for the impelmentation of new approaches and joint concepts. The content of subsequent project activities will be established on the basis of the benchmark results.
