COMUE Paris-Est University – Campus des métiers et des qualifications de l'économie touristique d'Île-de-France

Short description

The aim of the campus of jobs and qualifications of the tourism sector of Île-de-France is to gather companies, initial or continuous trainings providers, and research centres around issues linked to training in tourism professions. Its purpose is also to rethink, at the Île-de-France level, the connection between the VET stakeholders and to promote this major economic sector for the Region in order to be able to anticipate employments and qualifications’ changes.


The following sectors are concerned :

  • Jobs in creation and sale of tourism products
  • Jobs in hospitality industry, accommodation and reception
  • Jobs in food service and gastronomy
  • Jobs in leisure, animation, culture, sports
  • Jobs in business tourism, conferences, salons, and exhibitions
  • Jobs in tourist territories’ promotion and development
  • Jobs in tourist innovation: sustainable development, mobility, emerging technologies, and smart destinations


Missions :

  • Developing a shared approach on trainings for tourism jobs
  • Encouraging the tourist industry’s logic
  • Encouraging innovation and experimentation
  • Developing the exchange of good practices between territories
