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:

Jornada Innovación Espacios

Gastrosense: Mejora de la experiencia gastronómica en espacios de restauración a través de la neuroarquitectura

16 de abril a las 16h.



The CETT promotes three research groups: TURCiT (Research Group in Tourism, Culture, and Territory), GRATiR (Research Group in Tourism Accommodation and Food service industries) and GRCiG (Cuisine and Gastronomy Research Group), which act as aas a cornerstone of tourism, hospitality, and gastronomy knowledge.


The UB Chair of Tourism, Hospitality and Gastronomy CETT is a joint initiative of the CETT Barcelona School of Tourism, Hospitality and Gastronomy, the University of Barcelona, the CETT Foundation, and the Barcelona City Council that aims to promote research and knowledge transfer in their fields of action.


To form communication points between the academic world and applied science, we promoted the creation of two academic journals: the ARA Journal of Tourism Research, an academic and applied science media outlet, and the Tourism and Heritage Journal, which seeks to share knowledge on cultural and heritage tourism.
