Research at CETT

CETT aims to be the driving force for change in the sector to anticipate new challenges and social trends. Therefore, from CETT, we support the development of applied research projects that contribute to the competitiveness and sustainability of tourism, hospitality, and gastronomy.

In this sense, CETT's research focuses on three main areas of transformation:


CETT has three research groups that act as a cornerstone of tourism, hospitality, and gastronomy knowledge. Our teaching and research staff develops and collaborates in these groups' research and knowledge transfer projects. These groups are TURCiT - Research Group in Tourism, Culture, and Territory; GRATiR - Research Group in Tourism Accommodation and Food Service industries and GRCiG - Research Group in Cuisine and Gastronomy.


CETT is co-responsible for the creation of the UB Chair of Tourism, Hospitality, and Gastronomy CETT. This Chair is promoted by CETT, the University of Barcelona, Barcelona City Council, and the CETT Foundation.


To form communication points between the academic world and applied science, we promote the creation of two academic journals: the ARA Journal of Tourism Research and the Tourism and Heritage Journal.
