How we help you

Good practices

Our good practice database is full of solutions from across Europe that our Policy Learning Platform experts have validated. We are in contact with our good practice owners to tell us which of their good practices can help regions mitigate the social, economic and environmental effects of the outbreak.

You can search our database using the keyword COVID-19 to find them. Also, please share your own know-how, experience and good practices to get involved.

Join online thematic activities

Over the past few months, we have been hosting a series of online events to address the challenges the pandemic has created.

On 9 June 2020, we met up for a special, online edition of Europe, let's cooperate. We talked about how working together and sharing solutions between regions can help us face the crisis and speed up recovery.

The Policy Learning Platform also hosted a series of webinars and online discussions. Why not contact them and suggest other topics you woud like to tackle. Email the Platform
