ESPON study - 04.09.2020

How are your cities and regions responding to COVID-19?
The coronavirus pandemic has a pronounced territorial dimension: not all areas have been impacted the same way and local and regional responses have been crucial to protecting our citizens and limiting contagion.

That’s why EU researchers at ESPON, in collaboration with CEMR, are collecting and studying best practices of cities and regions’ measures reacting or adapting to COVID. These will be analysed in a report to be shared with all European regions.

Examples of initiatives of interest include:
  • How regions or cities are adapting services and policies towards people over 65
  • How digital public services are being used
  • How the situation is impacting relations with neighbouring regions (especially in border areas)
  • Specific responses for the population in rural/remote areas
  • Specific local or regional support for SMEs

If you have one or more examples of good practices you would like to share, please get in touch with CEMR head of research and studies Nathalie Noupadja.
