EIFMeT eTourism Masterclass 2021

IFITT is delighted to announce that the European IFITT MasterClass on eTourism (EIFMeT) continues in 2021 in Finland!

When and where?

The University of Eastern Finland and Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences together with Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development will arrange the fourth EIFMeT on

6-10 September 2021 in Helsinki.

What is EIFMeT?

The MasterClass is organized as a hybrid event and supports both physical as well as online participation. The speakers and participants attend the event either online or in Helsinki. The event is designed for master-level students and industry members in the tourism and hospitality fields. 

All students have a possibility to complete 2, 3, or 5 ECTS credits connected to the MasterClass. The students need to answer an online quiz after the event. The quiz contains questions regarding materials provided by the speakers (3ECTS) and the lessons learned during the week (2 ECTS). All students will receive a pdf certificate with the number of ECTS they have completed and the grade. All students are responsible for checking with their programme managers if the credits can be included in their degrees. 


EIFMeT 2021 focuses on Transformative power of technology: equality and recovery. We have speakers and lecturers from all over the world contributing to the event. Each day of the event includes lectures, workshop, and industry speaker. A detailed schedule will be released soon.
