IMY learning mobility initiatives enable participants to experience Tuscany’s productive arena, its industrial clusters and its products. According to the needs and objectives of the visit, participants discover the main actors of the production and commercialisation chains.
Furthermore IMY Study Visits enable professionals to establish direct and durable partnerships with providers and/or customers. 2017 was a successful year for IMY Study Visits, reason enough to break numbers down in some nice charts.
Country of origins
By far the most applicants come from Spain (43,3%). Poland, Sweden and Austria are almost even in second place with roughly 10%. France, Ireland, Germany and Finland are also popular countries of origin, and let’s not forget Holland and Denmark, who also participated.
By far the most popular month is March. Looks like the italian spring is most attractive to visitors and also the autumn is a popular starting period.
Let’s take a look at the visitors profiles in 2017. Most visitors came from the restauration sector with roughly 26%. The grand culinary heritage of Tuscany is a strategic sector with cheeses, olive oil and local wines like Chianti and Brunello promoting this heritage all over the world.
The second most popular sector was marketing. For the rest of the activities there was a wide range of jobs, including gardening, installation and construction work. See all details in the infographic.
