The latest event in the Liverpool Responds series brings together public health and culture experts to discuss how science and society came together to pilot a safe return to live, large scale events.
Liverpool’s invaluable contribution to the Government’s Events Research Programme (ERP) was a partnership between University of Liverpool scientists, Liverpool City Council, the event organisers, and the people of Liverpool City Region.
The city hosted four hugely successful events as part of the national ERP, with a total of 13,258 people attending The Good Business Festival, two nightclub events hosted by Circus and the Sefton Park Pilot music festival.
This free virtual event will give insights into what made the Liverpool ERP a success from tracing contacts to audience responses and health data outcomes as well as the collaboration between partner organisations and the Government.
Chaired by Professor Iain Buchan who led the University of Liverpool’s contribution to the ERP, the event panel includes:
• Culture Liverpool Director Claire McColgan MBE and Head of Creative Development, Robin Kemp
• Professor Matt Ashton, Director of Public Health for Liverpool
• The University of Liverpool’s Dr Michael Humann, Dr Girvan Burnside and Professor Rhiannon Corcoran
Liverpool Responds is the University of Liverpool’s online event series considering different aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, its response and the sectors affected by it.
The event will take place via zoom. Details will be emailed on the day of the event to those registered.
