In this topic, the results are presented in a summary form, looking for an integrated analysis between the answers obtained in the national level questionnaire and those of the good practices questionnaire. It is worth noting that the answers given by the European Level Questionnaire will also be mentioned here, with minor relevant annotations.

First, the geographical distribution of the countries responding to the different questionnaires is presented:

we had responses from 22 entities from 21 different countries: Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Turkey;

we had responses from 25 good practices from 11 different countries: Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Montenegro, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, The Netherlands and Turkey. A total of 23 questionnaires were analysed, since 2 of the questionnaires did not present a description of any good practice.
