Our Good practices database currently counts over 1700 items, shared by policy makers from all over Europe. All good practices are reviewed by the Policy Learning Platform Thematic Experts and are only admitted to the database if they show true value for other European regions. 

In order to help you find inspiration and solutions in our database, we have put in place subtopics for each of our four themes. This will allow you to search the database more targeted and find good practices that are specifically of your interest.

Submission of good practices 

When you submit good practices, you will also notice that the subtopics are newly added to the submission form. When you are part of a project, you will only need to select your project and the main theme and subtopic(s) will automatically be added for you. These have been predefined by the programme and are not possible for you to change. When going through the submission process, your Policy Officer will decide whether a second subtopic is relevant for your practice
