The project is facing a slight delay in terms of completing 2 activities due to the fact that Beneficiary 2 has not yet signed the contract for needs assessment analysis, related to Activity T1 “Elaboration of Needs assessment analysis on senior tourists preferences”. Also, activity T2 “Elaboration of Study on senior tourism development in BG and RO” is facing delays due to the fact that B2 and B3 have not yet signed the contracts for elaboration of the study. Still, not all the contracts within the project have been signed. 3 contracts on behalf of the Lead Beneficiary have to be signed, being in process of contracting, namely for elaboration of smart points, hiring of lecturers and provision for transport service.
