On 24–26 May 2023, researchers from the Institute of Economics and Rural Development of the Lithuanian Center for Social Sciences have participated in the 1st international training seminar in Oystese (Norway). This seminar is financed from the Baltic Sea Region 2021–2027 programme project BASCIL - Innovative Solutions for the Rural Food Production Sector to Diversify into Sustainable Culinary Tourism Services. During the seminar, the Canvas model was presented, that help to evaluate the quality of the products and services of various businesses, the needs and expectations of the user, financial and other resources, and to make the desired corrections in order to achieve new goals. The participants analyzed good practices from their regions in the fields of cultural tourism and discussed how the product and service provision could be improved by diversifying their activities, providing culinary tourism services, taking into account the new needs of consumers and the specifics of the Baltic region. During the meeting, the project participants were also introduced to examples of good practice in this region of Norway. One of them is the cider cluster, which brings together cider producers and other food service providers in the region. Most of these initiators are the children of local farmers who completed their studies in the cities and later returned to their hometowns and applied this knowledge to create new products and services. On the last day of the event, the participants have introduced other initiatives of the Baltic Sea regions.
