The results of the research are publiched in the "Impacts of COVID-19 pandemic and earthquakes on cultural sector in Republic of Croatia. Report on the research results" publication. The research was conceptualized and conducted in collaboration with researchers dr. sc. Željka Tonković, dr. sc. Ana Žuvela and dr. sc. Krešimir Krolo, and led by dr. sc. Dea Vidović, the director of the Foundation, while the research coordinator was Marta Jalšovec, the associate in the Foundation’s R&D Department.

The research analyses different segments of the impact and resilience of the cultural sector, as well as measures to support the sector that were implemented in response to the crisis. The research data confirmed that the COVID-19 pandemic and the earthquakes drastically affected the cultural sector in Croatia. Based on the analysis, the authors of the research formulated recommendations for upgrading the cultural system and implementing future measures that could respond to the specific needs of various actors in the cultural sector and thus speed up and facilitate their recovery.
