INSETE is a non-profit organization founded in early 2013, on the initiative of the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE), to contribute with well-substantiated ideas for promoting both public and private policies that will support, modernize and improve the Greek tourism sector and any other service sector which is directly or indirectly associated with it. The Institute contributes effectively in documenting the significance of tourism for the Greek economy and society, and boosts the knowledge and skills of its human resources, while supporting a qualitative improvement of the sector.
