The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) wants to conduct test concerts in Norway with 5,000 spectators. An Ethics Committee has given its approval to the proposal. Thus, the authorities will move to the next step and decide whether the project will take place.
The Regional Committee for Medical Research Ethics (REK) has given the necessary approval for the research project, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.
“I think it is great that REK processed the case so quickly and is so unequivocal in its positive assessment of the project,” project manager Atle Fretheim at the FHI noted.
Aiming for June
The FHI wants to perform three test concerts with up to 5,000 spectators per concert. They hope to carry out the concerts in June.
It has not been decided where and when the concerts will be held. The FHI believes it will be indoors without face masks and in Oslo. It has also not been decided who can attend the concerts and who will perform at the concerts.
The project is currently estimated to cost between NOK 20 million and NOK 30 million.
