Survey - Transfer of knowledge between tourism organisations

Published on 15 May 2017


Edith Cowan University invites tourism operators in the City of Swan to participate in a PhD survey on the transfer of knowledge between tourism organisations in Western Australia.

The main purpose of the research is to study the functionality of the knowledge transfer network in the tourism industry.

The aim is to investigate how effectively and efficiently information and knowledge are transferred between tourism enterprises and organisations in Western Australia.

The study of knowledge transfer is significant because WA tourism needs to be highly innovative to compete with its national and international rival destinations, and one of the major components of innovation is having an effective knowledge transfer network.

The online survey will take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. The project has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of Edith Cowan University.

All your answers will remain totally confidential. All information collected will be de-identified immediately after the data collection and no data with identifiable names will be stored or used in the future.

Take the survey

FREE ACCESS to research project on “Lack of Connectivity between WA Tourism Web Sites

Edith Cowan University have made available the results of a previously completed study on the lack of connectivity between WA tourism websites.

The website connectivity study was based on  tourism businesses listed with the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW). The ATDW is the national platform for digital tourism data that provides content for tourism operators and distributors.

Western Australian businesses are required to be tourism accredited to list their business with ATDW (NOTE. this does not apply to restaurants and free of charge attractions).  An example of the benefits of listing with ATDW is promotion of your business details free of charge on the Western Australia tourism website.

To find out about your business website position within this study, tourism accreditation and listing your business with ATDW, call (08) 9267 9227 or email
