The French and Czech broadcasts of czech radio "Český rozhlas", short articles and more comprehensive studies present the results of the Czech-Norwegian Memorabilia project, from autumn 2019 to summer 2021. EEA and Norway grants, which co-finance the project, have a strict agenda for disseminating results project in the media and on social networks. Our team is not proficient enough in this agenda, but we are learning to work with these requirements.
The pandemic of covid-19 has significantly slowed down our plans and outputs, but we will have one more year to work on it. The project will be extended until the summer of 2022.
