COVID Event Risk Model
Research period: 2020
In collaboration with VISITFLANDERS, EventFlanders and the Alliance of Belgian Event Federations
How can we organise safe events during the corona crisis?
This research resulted in the COVID Event Risk Model (CERM). From there, the COVID Event Scan was developed which calculates the safety risk of any type of event, regardless of size or type.
COVID Event Scan
This tool provides insight in the COVID safety risk of the event. Both in 2020 as in 2021, it was used extensively by many event professionals and local authorities. After all, the tool resulted in an advice on whether or not to permit and organise the event in the different phases of the pandemic.
In order to guarantee the CERM always corresponded with the often fluctuating corona measures, the scan was regularly updated.
