Multidisciplinary approach to connect knowledge
toho’s multidisciplinary approach brings the best of NOVA’s knowledge at the service of Tourism and Hospitality. We deliver innovation and empowerment by connecting knowledge
Message from the Director
Having worked in tourism & hospitality for 3 decades, the aspect that has fascinated and driven me throughout, is its power to connect people, societies, environments, industries, knowledge….
When NOVA started developing the idea of building a platform to bridge the university’s knowledge and capabilities and deploy it against the needs of the Tourism and Hospitality Industry it immediately sparked my interest; it was obvious that Nova’s vast expertise in different fields of knowledge such as sustainability, health, nutrition, heritage, digitization, data, management could be beneficial to the Tourism & Hospitality Industry, which in turn can act as a platform to connect with other industries.
This is what ultimately lead to the birth of toho!
I would love to have the opportunity to exchange views on the future of tourism and hospitality, and how we can contribute to connect knowledge to make it real.
