Round table discussion: Lessons learned from innovative practices during the COVID-19 pandemic




During the first period of the pandemic, the government at central and local level had to take decisions in a short period of time to respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

How were innovative practices designed in the beginning in response to the crisis, what did we learn from their implementation and how does the crisis affect the way we design our policies?
