The COVID-19 pandemic has already had devastating impacts on businesses across the globe, and it is difficult to predict the global state of the economy in a post pandemic era. With closed borders to prevent the spread of the deadly virus, the tourism industry has taken a significant impact from the COVID-19 crisis.

In collaboration with multiple international partners, FUNIBER is working to provide small and medium businesses in Europe’s tourism sector resources for future crisis management. By actively researching and disseminating information internationally, the T-CRISIS-NAV project will provide critical skills on how to manage business in a post pandemic world. FUNIBER and our partners are researching every day what businesses in the tourism sector are experiencing, and what resources are needed for successful operations after the pandemic. The project plans to complete research by 2023 in order to give businesses the necessary tools to start the recovery process from pandemic losses.

Vaccination rates are on the rise in Europe, and so is safer tourism for the 2021 summer season. Experts are predicting the tourism sector will heal by 2023, and the recovery process starts with today’s progress of moving forward from the COVID-19 crisis. A newsletter summarizing current research efforts and progress will be made available to audiences by the end of June.
