Funding transnational projects to foster integration of third country nationals in the Member States of the European Union.
Project applications submitted under the present Call for Proposals should build onto the results of previous projects and must address either priority 1 or 2 presented below or both priorities and be designed to achieve one or several outcomes defined under each of the two priorities.
Priority 1: foster integration of migrant women.
Outcome 1.1: Share knowledge and experiences of actions to support migrant women, in particular beneficiaries of international protection, in their language learning, access to accommodation, access to health care adapted to their particular needs and access to vocational training and targeted assistance in seeking employment, including through services facilitating the balance with private and family life such as childcare services and care for other dependent persons.
Outcome 1.2: Implement concrete initiatives fostering the integration of migrant women, including asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection, in the receiving society (through training, educational and recreational activities, vocational training, help to access to the labour market, anti-discrimination projects and cultural initiatives that promote inter-cultural dialogue and a culture of welcoming communities).
Outcome 1.3: Contribute to building capacity in countries and domains where measures targeting women (e.g. aimed at minimising their isolation and ensuring their participation in local social life), in particular asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection, are still lacking.
Priority 2: facilitate the access to work and foster integration in the workplace.
Outcome 2.1: Implement concrete initiatives aimed at facilitating the access to work of migrants and, in particular, beneficiaries of international protection (and asylum seekers having a legal access to the labour market), through inter alia labour market information, language and vocational training, skills assessment, information on recognition of qualifications and contact with potential employers.
Outcome 2.2: Identify examples of and contribute to the role migrants entrepreneurs can play to foster integration.
Outcome 2.3: Stimulate methods for engaging with employers and social partners in the integration process, and ensure that a better integration is reached in the workplace through the promotion and effective management of diversity.
Outcome 2.4: Exchange of experiences of initiatives involving employers in integration efforts, for example through training, mentor projects, start-up support programmes, diversity management or promotion of integration in the workplace. Such initiatives can involve employers (including public administrations), social partners, migrant organisations and other relevant stakeholders.
