Contribution to the 2022 EU Annual Regional and Local Barometer

In preparation of the ‘EU Annual Regional and Local Barometer 2022’, this study shall further analyse what the COVID-19 pandemic means to the development and future perspectives of regions and cities in Europe. The study is a further development of the CoR studies on ‘potential impacts of COVID-19 on regions and cities of the EU’ carried out in summer 2020 and summer 2021. This time, a particular focus is on the actual impacts of COVID-19 and the subsequent policy measures. This includes an analysis of how EU emergency, recovery and resilience measures (especially the Recovery and Resilience Facility) affect regions and cities in the EU. The analysis of the impacts and effects of recovery and resilience measures will be accompanied by a follow-up of the regional case studies conducted for the study presented in summer 2022.

The study is carried out in cooperation with t33 and ÖIR.


First results on potential impacts of the war in Ukraine are presented in our blog.
