Continuing, restarting and adjusting amidst the Pandemic: ECoC and CCI in Matera, Rijeka and Timisoara

How do policy makers and stakeholders in Matera and the Region of Basilicata see the future, where 2020 was supposed to bring about the continuation of successful projects and initiatives launched in the framework of the European Capital of Culture 2019?

How is Rijeka city, its ECoC projects and cultural and creative sector are coping with being hit by the outbreak of the pandemic after Rijeka 2020 had just been launched?

And what possible paths can Timisoara take to adjust to this emergent situation and uncertainties in order to successfully implement and benefit from its ECoC year and legacy?
