What FLATOD-19 – Flexible Tourist Destinations is?
The FLATOD-19 project is the result of a research effort to develop a comprehensive method of action to meet the major challenges facing a tourist destination in an environment of epidemics such as COVID-19. More specifically, the Project helps the pre-planned restriction of incidents and the rapid traceability of cases through the following pillars:
- Destinations’ allocation based on i) the probability/ efficiency of “opening” and ii) the visitors’ characteristics, e.g. their country of origin following always the performance of a short economic-technical purpose audit.
- Formation of a collaborative Leadership for implementing the project at any required local level and installation of critical information systems (mini MIS).
- Visitors’ management following their grouping in clusters based on their country of origin, destination and hotel through zoning and time-slotting starting since their booking until their departure.
