To elaborate the roles of place-based evolution and related activities in the trajectories and sustainable development of CCIs in peripheral places.

3

To assess the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on CCIs in non-urban regions.

5

To examine the needs and resources of CCI actors in six selected non-urban areas.

6

To monitor the development of 12 place-based CCI projects that embody creative responses to social, political, and environmental issues.

8

To assess how CCIs and cultural policies in certain places can be aligned with innovation policies and S3 (smart development) policies for non-urban regions.

To identify possibilities and potentials for future growth of CCIs in non-urban regions across Europe, and provide strategic policy recommendations for enabling this development.
