With the outburst of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, countries all over the world took drastic measures to contain the spread of the virus by closing towns, cities, and national borders. We reach a new stage in this process, as countries are starting to implement exit strategies from the imposed lockdowns. All this has a significant influence not only on the social lives of the people, but equally on economies or the environment.

You, as people in charge of regional development policies, face new challenges and finding proper solutions fast is even more important in the current context.

The Policy Learning Platform is committed to continue helping you and to make the #policylearning services respond to your needs on the ground. Now, more than ever, sharing policy solutions and making our collective intelligence work is one possible tool to respond to the current crisis.

This is why we will organise a series of online discussions on the impacts and recovery scenarios from the COVID-19. Economic recovery, SMEs rescue, environmental impact, innovation in health are only some examples of what we could focus on. What would be your interest? Please take 3 minutes, fill-in the survey relevant to the topic of your interest and help us design our online series.

The surveys are open for input up to 29 May.

The online series assumes active participation and will gather a closed number of people. They are mainly dedicated to Interreg Europe project partners. And are expected to start at the beginning of July.
