Cultural and creative sectors (CCS) have been hit hard by the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. This study analyses the so far effects of the crisis on the CCS, as well as the policy responses that are formulated to support the sectors. Based on the analysis, policy recommendations are formulated to further improve the resilience of the CCS in Europe in the medium and longer term.

The presentation of the study took place at the CULT Committee meeting on 25 February 2021 and focused on the following topics:

· Pre-COVID-19 situation in the CCS

· Effects of COVID-19 on CCS, together with a sub-sector impact heatmap

· Analysis of emergency and relaunch policy support for CCS on European and national level

· Perspectives beyond the COVID-19 crisis

· Policy recommendations for a long-lasting, COVID-19-proof and sustainable recovery of the sectors
